Introduction

Keeping the moisture content in sugar and its co-products strictly within specifications is key to the operational excellence of sugar plants.

Moisture Analysis in Sugar Factories

Fast and accurate information on moisture content is crucial for optimal control of sugar production plants and for the safe storage and transportation of the final product.

Moisture in Sugar – It's the Law, and Key to Product Quality

Refined or white sugar may have a maximum of 0.06% moisture according to EU sugar policy.

HX204 – quick and accurate results

Moisture determination of white and raw sugar with the HX204 takes only 4–7min, without the need for any reagents.

The HX204 calculates the results automatically, which are cross-validated against the drying oven method.

How to use the HX204 moisture analyzer for fast and easy moisture content determination

With the example of white sugar it is demonstrated how easy and fast you get moisture results for your sample.

Correlation HX204 versus Drying Oven

A correlation of the moisture analyzer results versus the drying oven method is done showing that the HX204 moisture analyzer provides excellent repeatability and results matching the results from the reference method.
