As a critical part of many quality control procedures, particularly in the food industry, METTLER TOLEDO’s new HE53 halogen moisture analyzer provides reliable moisture results in just a few minutes, giving companies maximum control over their manufacturing processes and optimum product quality.

The HE53 has been designed for simplicity to make it easy for even untrained operators to use. The very affordable price tag means smaller companies, that often feel they don’t have the financial resources to invest in high-end moisture analysis equipment, no longer need to forego moisture testing.

The HE53 provides graphical guidance on the instrument display so operators can clearly see each of the three steps in the process: 1. Tare the empty weighing pan; 2. Add the sample and spread evenly; and 3. Press start. The final moisture content of the sample is displayed on the screen after just a few minutes. The moisture content result indicates if the product meets the defined process tolerances and enables any necessary adjustments to the manufacturing process to be made immediately, saving time and avoiding the necessity to discard out-of-specification products.

The HE53 uses modern halogen drying technology coupled with a high performance weighing unit to ensure moisture results are accurate and highly repeatable. The robust design makes it suitable for use not only in the laboratory, but also out on the factory floor where it will need to survive in challenging environments.

For those operators not sure of where to begin, the HE53 is supplied with METTLER TOLEDO’s “Guide to Moisture Analysis” which contains a wealth of information on installation, operation, samples, and routine testing. Free online training gets novice operators off to a quick start. And ready-to-use drying methods are also available so users new to moisture analysis can be up and running in next to no time.
