AD-4715 offers results in 5 minutes in predictive modeUncompromising rapid moisture measurements, top notch performance and functionality from a leader in the weighing industry - A&D Weighing

Choose A&D moisture balances for the high level performance in quality control, production, incoming inspection and receiving applications.  Moisture determination in raw materials, intermediates and finished products are key factors in delivering a consistent uniform product in production applications. 

The quick results the AD-4715 provides using the predictive mode allows you to quickly make adjustments to your manufacturing production process.  Whether you are making pasta to automotive belts, moisture content is vital to manufacturing an optimum product.  Moisture balances are almost vital equipment for wastewater treatment plants in determining percent solids of sludge. 

The infrared radiation & detection of weight loss delivers considerably shorter measurement times compared to conventional methods, and better reproducibility of the measured values.  Get results faster and with greater reliability than conventional oven drying methods.

A&D offers a great line of moisture balances that are simply to use.  Load the moist sample, close the drying cover, and press the start key.  After a short time, read the results on the large bright LCD.

WinCTWith the built in RS232 standard with the AD-4715 and optional on the AD-4712 you can interface either of these moisture balances with your pc.  The new A&D WinCT can generate an hard copy data record for ISO/GLP compliance a cinch.  The WinCT balance communication software is absolutely free, and you can download your copy online here.

Warning - Moisture balances should not be used on any volatile organic sample with flash points.  Even a MSDS rating of 1.  Samples with low flask points like Acetaldehyde -38°C or MEK -4°C should not be used with the A&D Moisture Balances and maybe you should look at Karl Fisher as an alternative.

Although you might presently perform analysis with an oven on these sample the ovens typically have ventilation and a much larger cavity than the typical moisture balance that operates on the principles of TGA.  In addition, with most moisture balances there is no ventilation so all the fumes remain inside the hood of the moisture balance.  We strongly recommend you consult with a safety specialist always prior to using any moisture balances for your safety.
