Differential Weighing Application Method Streamlines Loss-on-Drying Procedures

Jul 29 2020 Read 179 Times

Food producers know the correct moisture content of ingredients is critical not only for ensuring final product quality but also to determine the price paid for such items. However, the oven-based LoD procedures often used to determine moisture content tend to be time-consuming and error-prone due to the high level of manual operations involved.

Fortunately, Mettler-Toledo MS-TS analytical balances offer an alternative to complex manual workflows. MS-TS balances offer a free, onboard differential weighing application to ensure that samples are handled correctly and that the right results are attributed when obtaining tare, pre-drying and post-drying weights.

The ease of using the application is described in a new publication titled ‘Moisture Determination in QC: The Drying-Oven Reference Method’. Using a real-world example, the paper walks readers through how the differential weighing application, particularly when combined with a handheld barcode reader and Mettler-Toledo laboratory printer, simplifies sample management, reduces transcription errors and improves productivity.

While many manufacturers have moved to halogen moisture analysis for routine determinations, the drying oven may still be the method of choice when setting moisture-content standards or processing more than one type of sample.

To see how the MS-TS application can help you ensure oven-based LoD accuracy as well as decrease errors and reduce time spent managing workflows, download your free copy of the application note today.
