Moisture Balances PCE moisture balances are designed for the industrial and professional sectors. Moisture balances can determine the remaining dry matter after a drying process with infrared energy of the original matter which has to be previously weighed. So humidity is calculated in relation to the weight of the wet matter. During the drying process the decreasing of moisture in the material is shown on the display. Moisture balances are an ideal device to determine humidity and the amount of dry matter as well as the consistence of volatile and fixed substances with high accuracy. These moisture balances are mainly used in the industrial sector to analyze pastes, mass, woods, adhesive materials, dusts, for the production and control of materials. The weighing system of moisture balances possesses all the properties of modern balances. Our moisture balances come with two years guarantee.

You can use moisture balances for various functions. Humidity can be quickly and accurately detected in many different materials such as: powder materials, food, pallets (wooden pallets, etc.). Below, you will find some images of different materials which can be weighed on the moisture balances:
Additional software and devices are also available for moisture balances: software kit (software and data cable) for data to be directly transferred to a computer; printer; fiberglass round filters; test weights for calibration on the site. In order to meet ISO 9000 standard, moisture balances can be ordered with an official calibration certificate (optional: when the scale is ordered or as an annual recalibration).
An ISO calibration can be done by every accredited laboratory tester.
Measuring principle of the moisture balances (scale version):
Thermogravimetric- this method is used to determine the weight loss during a
drying process. The material sample will be weighed before and after the drying.
The difference of the material mass before the drying relates to the mass after
Drying of the granules with the help of PCE-MB series moisture balances
Moisture content in materials: Our moisture balances use the thermogravimetric measuring method, all components of the material sample that are able to change the state of aggregate and cause reduction of the material are involved in the measurement (e.g. evaporation during the heating). The measurement of moisture does not only refer to the water content in the material but also every other substance, such as alcohol, flavourings, organic based thinners as well as further substances, that occur due to the pyrolysis. Thermogravimetry does not distinguish between water and other substances. There are indeed non-destructive methods to measure the water content in materials, however, we do not focus on those methods at this point. Compared to the conventional drying oven with hot air flow that extracts moisture from the material, the application of halogen radiation in a moisture balance allows a considerable reduction of the drying time. Therefore, our moisture balances replace the classic drying oven. This way, you can save time and money.
