Moisture analyser proves vital in food testing labs

Adam Equipment, a global manufacturer of professional weighing equipment, provides the PMB moisture analyser for use in food labs.

Moisture and weight assessments provide critical information about content, quality and safety in food. The levels of acidity and water, along with the absence or presence of bacteria, moulds, pathogens and other contaminants, can be determined by analysing food samples. It is also important to test freshness and validate sanitation procedures.

With simple operation and rapid response time, PMB moisture analysers are excellent for use in food processing and quality control. PMB offers an easy way to measure moisture content in foods, helping production workers assess contents of mixtures and batches.

The automatic test-setting function enables easy recall for frequent testing of the same items without additional user programming. Users can log or print information, communicate with computers or transmit test programs and results using the USB and RS-232 interfaces. There is no need for additional software to take readings, giving users freedom to collect data in any location. A single 400W halogen bulb heats samples in 1°C selectable increments. Three heating options give users the flexibility to customise test methods and temperatures for different materials.

The adoption of increased safety measures in food testing means safer and better-quality food products will reach the marketplace. With equipment such as the Adam Equipment PMB moisture analyser, food labs are better equipped to perform tests.
