  • Easy – Once programmed, simply select and run test.

There is a temperature limitation when using the MB45 at high temperatures. There is also a limitation when doing several tests above 160°C. This is not true in the MB35 because the temperature is limited to 160°C.

  • Temperature limitation – The following protective measures have been implemented to protect the instrument from overheating

The moisture Analyzer is equipped with an overheating protection. At temperatures above 160°C, a time limit becomes active. The higher the temperature, the shorter the time until the instrument starts to lower the temperature. At 200°C the temperature will hold for 10 minutes then start to drop. It reaches 160°C in about 50 minutes.

  • If you are working at temperatures of 180°C and above, we advise you to wait 2 to 3 minutes with the instrument lid open between individual measurements to ensure good reproducibility and avoid overheating of the instrument.
