DBS 60-3 Moisture analyser with graphics display and 10 memories for drying programs

The moisture of a sample is not only the water content in the material.

“Material moisture” is understood to be all volatile substances which escape during heating and result in a weight loss of a sample.

These include:
•Organic solvents
•Volatile constituents
•Where necessary, Decomposing substance (if heated too strongly)
  • Backlit graphic display, digit height 15 mm
1 Drying process active
2 Previous drying time
3 Current temperature
4 Unit for displaying the results
5 Current moisture content in %
6 Active heating profile
  • Halogen quartz glass heater 400 W
  • Observation window above the sample,useful during initial setting
  • Internal memory for automatic sequence  of 10 complete drying processes and  100 drying processes carried out
  • The last value measured remains on  the display until it is replaced by a new measurement
  • Sample description for up to 99 samples,  2 digits, freely programmable, and is printed in the measuring protocol
  • Date and time display as standard·10 sample plates included
  • Protective working cover included with delivery
  • Application handbook: On the internet,  you will find a practical application handbook containing many examples, field reports, settings and tips for each KERN moisture analyser
