Precisa Gravimetrics have developed a wide range of application notes for different materials. Please find below a list of our library of applications.


Ash and Moisture Applications for Plastic and Composites

Automation of moisture and ash analysis with the prepASH provides efficiency, quality and security into the laboratory. Plastic is the common term for a wide range of synthetic or semi synthetic organic amorphous solid materials suitable for the manufacture of industrial products.


Application Note: Moisture Determination of Liquid Soap

Maintaining optimal moisture levels during the production of soap is critical to achieving the highest quality product. When the moisture content becomes too high or too low, product quality becomes inferior and waste occurs.


Application Note: Moisture Determination of Different Plastic Granules

Precisa moisture analysis XM60/EM120 Halogen
*Can be conducted using the XM50, XM60-HR & XM66


Application Note: Ash and Moisture Determination using prepASH 340 Series for Food Analysis

Automation of the moisture and ash analysis brings efficiency, quality and security into the laboratory.

Analysis of meat
The nutrient content of meat and meat products is determined with the following analysis and often calculated as packages by contract laboratories:


Application Note: Sludge Analysis with Precisa's prepASH Thermogravimetric Analyser

Volatile solids are a substance that can easily transform from its solid phase to its vapor phase without going through a liquid phase – domestic waste water volatile solids are about 50% organic. For local sewage stations with only a few samples per day the XM66 would be a perfect alternative to determine the moisture content, continuing to manually ash in a muffle.
