Outline and Features
The moisture analyzer is built using a super hybrid sensor (S.H.S.) adopted in an
analytical balance. Therefore, the result is more precise and gets greater repeatability.
An analyzer using the S.H.S. has high sensitivity, needs only a sample quantity of a
few grams, and the analysis time becomes shorter.
A 400W halogen lamp is used as the heating source and the temperature on the
sample pan can reach 200°C within two minutes.
There are five analysis modes.
Standard mode..... The moisture content can be obtained with settings of the
drying temperature and accuracy.
Quick mode........... Sample is heated up for approximately three minutes at 200°C so
that analysis time becomes shorter. The moisture content can
be obtained with settings of the drying temperature and
accuracy.
Automatic mode .... When the change of moisture content per one minute is less than
the preset termination value, the measurement is automatically
stopped and the result is obtained.
Timer mode ............ The sample is dried for a preset time and the result is obtained.
Manual mode.......... This mode can stop the measurement by key operation and the
result is decided.
The heating patterns can be used to analysis mode without quick mode.
(For ML-50, standard drying and quick drying can be used only)
Standard drying ..... Maintains a constant drying temperature.
Ramp drying........... Increases the drying temperature gently.
Step drying ............. Uses multiple steps of the drying temperature.
Quick drying........... Heats up 200°C for few minutes and uses a constant drying
temperature.
The analyzer can store and recall proper individual settings for each sample using a
program number (PROG No.).

The software "WinCT-Moisture", the standard accessory of the MS-70 and MX-50,
has a function that can make a graph of the change of moisture content in realtime
and has an optimum temperature search program that judges heating at an
appropriate temperature setting.
The software " WinCT", the standard accessory of the MF-50, is communication
software for transmitting data to a computer using Microsoft Windows.

MS-70 / MX-50 / MF-50 / ML-50
The analyzer is equipped with a serial interface as standard. It can be connected to
a printer or computer.
The analyzer can calibrate the weighing sensor (Use special mass.) and drying
temperature (Use temperature calibrator for MS-70 and MX-50 except MF-50 and
ML-50). The analyzer can output the data required at GLP, GMP and ISO at the end
of the calibration.
The analyzer has a self check function that can detect function errors.
The analyzer displays the current change of moisture content per one minute [%/ min]
in real-time. It can be used for the reference to find the analyzing mode.
The sample pans included in the standard accessory can be used repeatedly.
There is a test sample that is used to check the moisture accuracy. (The test sample
is a part of standard accessory except ML-50)
The glass fiber sheets can be used to quick and precision measurement for liquid
sample. (The glass fiber sheets are a part of standard accessory except ML-50)
A reference card is built into the bottom of the analyzer.
Principle and Use
The moisture analyzer, based on the principle of thermogravimetric analysis, dries a
sample using a halogen lamp and obtains the moisture content in % and other
results by the difference between the wet weight and dry weight.

5.3. Proper Operation for Precision Measurement
5.3.1.
Operation of the sample
Use a proper sample quantity. If the quantity is small, precise results may not be possible.
If the moisture content of the sample (example: plastic) can be estimated that is less
than 1%, the mass of moisture is not enough for the measurement, when measuring
light sample, the result may not be accurate. Consider the following sample mass for the
measurement.
An estimate of moisture content
1%
0.5%
0.1%
Necessary mass for measurement
2 g at least
5 g at least
20 g at least
If the measurement is repeated, maintain the same sample quantity.
Crush grain samples to a small, uniform powder for a quick drying process.
Spread the sample as evenly as possible.
The analyzer is designed to measure the moisture content
No good
Good
of the sample by its weight change. If the sample includes
volatile matter, it may vaporize during drying causing a measurement error.
When measuring a liquid or liquid state sample that may make a film on the surface, we
recommend you use a glass fiber sheet (AX-MX-32-2).
5.3.2.
Operation of the analyzer
Press the RESET key to display the zero value before each
measurement.

5.43% %/min
Select the proper Analysis Mode to finish a measurement. Use
the change of moisture content per one minute [%/min] that is
Result display
displayed during measurement as a reference value.
The analyzer needs a pre-heating process before measurement. When measuring
samples repeatedly or continuously, the first result is always different from the others.
The pre-heating process is as follows: Put a sample pan, instead of a sample, on the
pan. Press the START key to heat it. The analyzer temperature becomes equilibrium.
Use a sample on the sample pan that has cooled to room temperature. When a sample
is put on a hot sample pan, the moisture content is diffused before measurement, and
precise results are not possible. We recommend you use multiple sample pans.
Do not pile up sample pans during a measurement.
Avoid drift and vibration of air conditioners. It may cause "measurement error" and
"unstable value". In particular, because MS-70 is sensitive instrument, it is necessary to
consider these influences.
When the difference between ambient temperature and sample temperature is small, it
may cause temperature control error.
Example: If the heating temperature is set to 50°C, it is affected by an room temperature.
Check the activation of the halogen lamp with the operation indicator.
Example: If low heating temperature is set, the brightness of halogen lamp becomes dark.
Check the activation
with blinking

The Glass Fiber Sheets
Sheets
Use the glass fiber sheet to measure the moisture content
that is included in the following samples. When this sheet is
used, vaporization of moisture is speeded up and moisture
measurement result becomes quick and precise.
This accessory (AX-MX-32-1) is a package of 100 glass fiber sheets.
This accessory is inclued in the packing for MS-70, MX-50 and MF-50.
Purchase this accessory by your order for ML-50.
Use the glass fiber sheet (AX-MX32-1) for high surface tension liquid sample.
Example 1 : "Liquid Sample" Or "Meltable Sample"
When the glass fiber sheet is used for these measurements, moisture is more apt to
vaporize because of expanding the surface area and space. And the glass fiber
sheet has the effect of preventing a surface film from forming at drying process.
A sample including a lot of moisture
: Milk, yogurt, soybean milk, condensed milk, ketchup, resin, liquid paste, hand soap, etc.
A sample that melts and adheres to the sample pan.
Example:Chewing gums, caramel, hony, etc.
Sample pan
Procedure (Preparation before heating)
1 Put the glass fiber sheet on the sample pan.

4 Press the START key to start the measurement.
Example 2 : "If The Sample's Surface Is Apt To Carbonize"
When the sample is covered with a glass fiber sheet, carbonization of the sample surface
decreases. Therefore the measurement result becomes repeatable and precise.
A sample including a lot of sugar, protein and oil
Sample pan
Example:Hony, soybean powder, green tea leaves, cookies, etc.
A sample that has dark surface and is apt to carbonize
Example:Coffee, peanuts, etc.

---Test
(Sodium
odium tartrate dihydrate, Na2C4H4O6•2H2O )-----Test sample (S
)--Sodium tartrate dihydrate is used to check the accuracy of measurement for the
analyzer.
As an ideal substance on theory, sodium tartrate dihydrate includes moisture
content of 15.66% in the molecule. But the moisture content may change due to
conditions of storage.
The moisture content of 15.0 to 16.0% is obtained by the method below.
(Unit % is based on wet sample)
Sodium tartrate is contained in food (example : wine). If it may irritate the eyes and
nose, wash with water.
The test sample can not be used repeatedly. Dispose of it as flammable matter.
In case of MS-70 MX-50 and MF-50, test sample is included in these packing list.
In case of ML-50, purchase the test sample of accessory.
Caution A hot sample pan may cause an error. Allow the pan to cool before the next test.

12. Calibration
The moisture content is calculated with a ratio of wet weight and dried weight.
Therefore, the absolute value of weighing does not influence the calculation of the
moisture content, but it is necessary to get precise weighing for GLP, GMP and ISO.
Use a 20g mass or a 50g mass to calibrate the weighing sensor.
When calibrating the weighing sensor, you can output the calibration report adapted
to GLP, GMP and ISO.
There is a certified temperature calibrator (accessory AX-MX-43, only for MS-70 and
MX-50) to calibrate the pan temperature for precise temperature control.
When calibrating the temperature, you can output the calibration report adapted to
GLP, GMP and ISO.
The analyzer can store an ID number to be used in the calibration report. The
number can be used for management and maintenance of the analyzer
12.1. Identification Number (ID No.)

14.4. Troubleshooting
1.In
1.In the Case that Proper Results are not be Obtained.
Use the self-check function. Refer to 8.1.Self-Check Function .
Check repeatability. ( Weigh the same mass several times in
the weighing mode.) A taller mass may touch the
glass-housing. Use a short mass if possible. If a tall 50g mass
is used, open the heater cover and avoid external influence.
The height from sample pan to glass-housing is 26 mm.
Check whether the test sample can be measured correctly.
Avoid the breeze from an air conditioner and vibration.
Maximum height
of mass is 26 mm.
Check sample condition. Refer to 5.3.Proper Operation for Precision Measurement
Check measurement procedure and pre-heating process. Refer to 5.3.Proper
Operation for Precision Measurement

2.In Case that the Lamp does not Light
ght or it takes Too Long to Reach the Drying Temperature.
It requires six seconds to light the halogen lamp using
Halogen lamp
the START key.
When the heater cover is opened, power is not
supplied to the halogen lamp.
When an overheat has occurred, power is not supplied to
the halogen lamp until the halogen lamp becomes cool.
Check the rated voltage of the halogen lamp that is
printed around the holder.
Read rated
voltage
Read the power supply voltage label on the back of the heater cover and confirm that
the rated voltage of the halogen lamp is correct for your power supply voltage.
