Professional 250°C Drying
The Drying Oven uses two 500W Halogen heating elements to provide high speed infrared heating up to 250°C. Each element is used at half of its rated voltage, thereby providing for reliable operation and very greatly extended life. Temperature is sensed in good proximity to the samples for high accuracy and control. A programmable RS232 communication port is standard on all scales.
Multiple profiles and analysis modes
The analyzer offers 4 drying profiles (Standard, Slow, Step, and Rapid) which provide additional efficacy and allow the analyzer to adapt to a specific sample. The User may select one of three formulas for the analysis: Moisture % = mo-m/mo x 100, ATRO moisture % = mo-m/m x 100, or Dry Matter % = m/mo x 100. The choice of Mode is made in the Parameter Selection set up procedure which is greatly facilitated by the use of simple navigation keys.
Robust die-cast metal housing
The Torbal AGS Moisture Analyzer moisture analyzer is designed for heavy duty professional applications. The analyzer has a rugged and robust die cast metal housing, making it ideal for applications in tough environments. This rugged design provides a stable weighing platform and guarantees the long operating life of the unit.
USB and RS232 Interface Ports
A programmable USB and RS232 communication ports are standard on all AGS Professional Analyzers. The port allows transferring data to a printer or a PC. Under the control of Torbal software packages such as PROMas or STAT which are available for a free download. Data may be exported to standard word processing and spreadsheet programs.
PS2 External Keyboard Port
A standard PS-2 keyboard connector allows the user to use a standard PC type keyboard for external alpha-numeric data entry. For those applications which require rigid test parameter recording this capability can save the user a great deal of time while entering data.
Drying Report Printing
The analyzer produces a printed record of each analysis. The receipt includes details such as Drying temperature, Initial and Final sample weight, as well as sample moisture content and analysis modes entered by the operator.
Large Graphical LCD with Backlight
The AGS Moisture Analyzer uses a backlit pixel type graphic display panel. It is an invaluable tool for presenting moisture analysis screens that are User friendly and understood.
Onscreen Graph Plotting
The graphics display is used to plot result charts and they may be viewed in real time as the data for the plot is gathered. This provides the user with a powerful tool for revising parameters for data gathering.
Analysis Parameters Memory Bank
A bank of 10 memory storage areas is set aside for storing analysis parameters for individual tests. All of the parameters associated with a particular type of analysis may be stored with a single key stroke. The User is prompted after every set up procedure with a save memory inquiry.
20 Key Sealed Front Panel
AGS Professional Analyzers have a sealed front panel which protects the keys and the LCD display from dust and accidental spills. With 20 logically grouped keys, the panel is simple, concise and intuitive. All keys are soft, have audible feedback, and are very responsive, which makes user interaction easy and fast.
Navigation and Dual Tare Keys
The keyboard contains four navigation keys which are arranged likes the major points on a compass. These, combined with a Clear key and an Enter key, make selecting parameters an easy task. In addition, the Moisture Analyzer is equipped with dual tare keys, one on the left side of the keyboard, and one on the right side.
Automatic Self Test at Power up
Every time the Analyzer is put through its Power Up sequence it performs a six step self test sequence to verify that the Analyzer is functioning properly. This feature can prevent the user from wasting valuable time and using misleading results.
Included with each unit
Each moisture balance in furnished with disposable pans. The use of inexpensive disposable pans eliminates the considerable work that would often be required to remove dry residues from a standard pan. These pans are light weight oil free aluminum pans designed to hold the sample materials and help to provide a uniform temperature across the sample.
Sodium Tartrate Dihydrate
This chemical has some unique properties that make it a valuable tool for testing the Moisture Analyzer to be sure it is operating properly. The chemical starts as Sodium Tartrate to which two molecules of water are bonded making it a Dihydrate. The chemical is stable at temperatures up to 150 degrees C, and when heated at higher temperatures the water molecules are driven off. The chemical can be used as a primary standard for testing moisture analyzers or in titration. The theoretical moisture content of this chemical is 15.66% by weight.
A tweezers is furnished with each Moisture balance to facilitate the handling of small parts or items which are part of the test sample, both before and after heating. The use of the tweezers avoids adding oils or other contaminants that might occur if the samples were handled directly.
A forceps is furnished with each Moisture Analyzer to allow the user to handle those parts of the analyzer that become heated as part of the analysis process, such as the sample pan and/or its contents. They can also be useful in handling some parts that are difficult with the tweezers.
A special spoon is supplied with each moisture analyzer to facilitate loading a sample pan with a precise amount of a powder or granular substance.
