5 Top Tips to Improve you Moisture Analysis

Moisture analyzers are essential in many industries, from food processing to pharmaceuticals – moisture content plays a vital role. Optimizing your moisture analyzer is critical for continued accuracy and reliability during analysis.

We’ve gathered our 5 top tips that will get you the most from your moisture analyser, improving your moisture analysis results:

  1. Control ambient conditions
    Make sure there are no fluctuations in temperature or humidity. Your moisture analyzer should be placed on a stable surface and not near windows or drafts.
  1. Appropriate sample size
    Maintain consistency in sample weight and size when repeating analysis for continued reliability of results.
  1. Periodic calibration and testing
    Regularly calibrating and levelling your moisture analyzer assures accuracy during analysis to achieve optimum performance.
  1. Appropriate method
    Choose a method on your moisture analyzer that matches your current parameters. For example, you don’t want the temperature to be too high, as this can result in your sample burning.
  1. Moisture analyzers should be cooled before use again
    If your moisture analyzer is still hot from the previous run, and you begin loading your next sample, it can affect the initial weight reading. This could lead to inaccurate results. Ensure your moisture analyzer has cooled down and is ready to use again before you start your next sample analysis.

Increased Performance and Accuracy  

Reliable moisture content results are essential, and the 530 Moisture Analyzer provides this and more! With high precision and accuracy at its core, you can be sure your sample will be analysed with the utmost precision.

Normally, due to high temperatures, air lifting effects can occur, resulting in errors during analysis. This can significantly impact the reliability of results, particularly with samples with very low or very high moisture contents. At Precisa, we want to provide our customers with a moisture analyzer you can continually rely on. Our state-of-the-art R&D facility with purpose-built laboratories have developed an end product which minimises air lifting effects – increasing the reliability and accuracy of your results.

Piqued your interest? Your laboratory needs its moisture analyzers upgraded; the 530 is the high-performance kit you need – speak to our experts about it today.

Automated Lid Opening and Run Status Indication

For faster cool down, the lid automatically opens at the end of a run. You only have to wait a few minutes until your moisture analyzer is ready to go again, shortening and streamlining the process and making laboratory life easier.

The LED status indicator easily lets you see if your moisture analyzer is ready to use just by looking at it. The status indicator ensures that you don’t use your moisture analyzer when it is too hot, as this can affect the accuracy of results.


  • Green LED: Ready to use
  • Red LED: Analysis running
  • Red flashing LED: Device still hot



Easy Cleaning

In a busy laboratory, it’s easy to spill some of your sample on your moisture analyzer. The 530 Moisture Analyzer is an easy-to-assemble and disassemble product so that you can clean efficiently. Components are also dishwasher safe, making the process even simpler. All parts at the bottom of the heating chamber can be disassembled by hand – without the use of any tools.
