for Daily Routine Operation
– High-speed measurements
– Effortless cleaning
– User-friendly operation
– Display of process status
Product Description
The MA37 is the new Sartorius basic model for moisture determination. It works faster and is easier to use than
its predecessor MA35. In addition, it features a compact footprint and delivers highly accurate results. Moreover,
its BetterClean design also allows for effortless cleaning, and the status light indicates the current process status.
The MA37 is ideal for operations characterized by consistently routine measurement tasks.
The MA37 moisture analyzer can be used for quick and reliable
determination of the moisture content of liquid, pasty and
solid substances using the thermogravimetric method. Typical
applications of the MA37 include the analysis of foods, beverages,
pharmaceuticals, chemicals, paper materials and environmental
protection products. For daily recurring moisture analysis tasks,
such as in production or incoming goods inspection, the MA37 is
Fully automatic endpoint determination eliminates the
cumbersome capture of termination criteria. The moisture
analyzer monitors the drying process and stops the measurement
once the sample weight is constant. The built-in weighing system
with 1 mg resolution is specifically optimized for use in higher
temperature ranges and delivers the required measurement
accuracy. Two powerful metal tube heating elements heat the
samples in the MA37. These heating elements are fast, extremely
rugged and durable. Compared to glass heating lamps, e.g.
infrared lamps or halogen heaters, they are especially resistant
to dirt and vibrations.
