Mettler Toledo’s extensive moisture analysis library

Filter browses through data sheets, providing method parameters and sample preparation suggestions

Mettler Toledo has catalogued more than 120 halogen moisture analyser (HMA) methods for a variety of samples across all industries.

The resulting Moisture Application Library uses a filter set to browse through data sheets, providing method parameters and sample preparation suggestions to help implement reliable moisture analysis in the lab.

The user inputs information regarding the sample into the search engine. Once entered, the library shows all methods that match that search criteria and generates a downloadable PDF for each.

These quick-start method guides include detailed method parameters, including how to prepare samples for both the standard method and for HMAs. An XML file is also provided, which allows users to load the parameters directly into their Mettler Toledo HX204, HS153 or HC103 HMA.

Moisture analysis is a critical part of many processes in R and D, quality control, and production labs. For these busy labs, HMAs are an attractive option for this critical test because it typically takes just 5–15 minutes.

In contrast, standard oven-based Loss-on-Drying (LoD) usually takes several hours. Establishing a reliable protocol that provides results comparable to the standard method is a prerequisite.
