Faster, Smarter, More Efficient Moisture Analysis with a smart guide.

  • Moisture affects everything we use on a daily basis. Therefore, in many cases, it is important to be able to accurately determine the moisture content of samples.
  • Equipped to handle routine and sophisticated measurements, our flagship moisture analyzer MB120 makes the whole process faster, easier, and more efficient.
  • The MB120 allows you to analyze more samples, access saved data, and spend less time prepping and more time putting your results to work.

This revolutionary feature automatically analyzes a sample and creates a method, thereby removing the guesswork from the initial setup.

The MB120 has the capability to produce fast and accurate results due to features such as a halogen heating system, customizable shut-off criteria, and four built-in drying profiles.

The MB120 allows storage of up to 100 methods and 1,000 measurement results. Stored results can be exported, and methods can be shared across multiple devices.

MB120 Product details 

Construction: Metal base, ABS top housing, halogen heat source, stainless steel pan support, stainless steel panhandler, in-use cover

Design Features: Seven shut-off criteria (manual, timed, auto-free %/s, auto-free mg/s, A30, A60, and A90),four drying profiles (standard, fast, ramp, and step),storage up to 100 methods, and 1000 test results for all methods, user guide, 40°C to 230°C heating temperature range (1°C increment),14 operational languages.

Advanced moisture analysis

SmartGuide™ SmartGuide™ automatically analyzes a sample and creates a method, simplifying the method creation process and removing the guesswork from the initial setup.

Fast and Efficient Halogen Heating Technology

Halogen heating dries samples efficiently and in a fraction of the time versus a traditional loss on drying measurement with an oven. The MB120 has a full operating temperature range of 40–230 °C, settable in 1-degree increments.

Uniform Drying for Precise, Repeatable Results

The reflective sample chamber ensures uniform heating of each sample to yield reliable results of 0.01 % readability. 

Four Drying Profiles

Customize heating of specific samples with various drying programs; Standard, Fast, Ramp, and Step.

Flexible and Configurable Shut-Off Criteria

Customize your own test endpoint criteria to automatically end the test once moisture loss is no longer detected. Choose one of the built-in standard criteria or define your own.

Advanced Functionality

Internal Method Library - Store methods for up to 100 different samples - methods can be easily recalled and transferred to other units for quick setup.

Internal Result Storage - The MB120 will store 1000 results which can be printed or exported via USB memory stick as a group or individually for further analysis.

User Management With User Management, MB120 provides operational control and aids compliance by restricting access so that unauthorized users may use the device but not change settings.

RS232 and USB Ports Quick connections to a printer, PC, or flash drive.
