Moisture analysis plays a vital role in many areas of the chemical industry, including:

  • inspections at goods-in,
  • quality control in-process/final-product
  • development of new products.

Products and intermediaries typically have an optimum dry content that will provide the best possible quality, consistency and/or appearance. This makes accurate moisture content determination very important—and to ensure both high quality and high productivity, these tests should be conducted in a reliable, fast way.
