Moisture Analysis in Food Production

Jan 10, 2014 10:17:44 AM

Water is vital to sustaining life. In fact, every living organism that we know of requires sufficient water to thrive. Destructive bacteria and enzymes, however, also require sufficient water to thrive. Out of balance, too much water content multiplies the microorganisms that hasten decay. For this reason, moisture analysis becomes critical in food production. At least three things are making food processing and moisture control even more important.

1. A reliance on speed and convenience.

As our social norms lean more toward prioritization of speed and convenience, our processed and packaged foods have become more and more popular. Life is fast and full, and we have less time to build our meals from scratch. Food processing is an increasingly large industry.

One area in industry that should never be overlooked relates to the long term benefits of quality equipment. For example, many manufacturers require scales to account for the proper weight of items.  It is much more practical to go with a stainless steel floor scales that can provide ruggedness rather than a flimsy, cheap scale. Of course, depending on the industrial or commercial application, stainless steel floor scales can actually pay for themselves over time.  Here are five items to consider when weighing the investment versus payoff.


Durability


Whether the need for a scale is in a liquid heavy environment, a dry material location, or a forklift traffic area nothing answers the bell more than a piece of equipment designed to handle whatever operators throw its way.  Stainless steel offers a heavy duty alternative to traditional and less expensive metals and can easily handle whatever task is demanded.

Laboratories and businesses looking to make precision and minute measurements of mass need to have analytical balances. These balances are designed specifically for measuring minute masses less than a milligram precisely. Using these devices can take some time to learn the basics, but once understood, they become very easy to understand.

When to use an Analytical Balance

An analytical balance is to be used in conditions where knowing a precise mass is necessary. Knowing these precise measurements could be to ensure a safe product, reducing byproducts, or making a controlled budget of resources. An analytical balance will be able to measure the correct amounts of reagents and how much product was produced. Typically these balances can measure every 0.1 mg up to 200 g. Using these scales is similar but somewhat different than others.

At first glance the term waterproof scale brings to mind environments filled with liquids that can overflow onto the device.  While that scenario is often true regardless of the process area, dry environments can also necessitate waterproof scales. Many times, the material being weighed can spill onto the scale surface, and smaller granular material can render the air dusty and settle on the scale display.

Whether the scale in question is being used to package a final product or stage a raw material, the operator is not going to think twice before unleashing a water hose to clean the piece of equipment.  Proper industrial hygiene is essential to workplace safety, which means that the equipment present in the production area needs to withstand the rigorous demands of production and cleanup.

Jewelry Scales Ensure Accurate Sales

Dec 6, 2013 9:13:00 AM

Jewelry scales often aren't the focus of the jewelry industry. After all, who cares about a simple scale when you have precious metals and gemstones all around you? The humble jewelry scale certainly can take a backseat to the glamor, but it shouldn't. In reality, the jewelry scale is one of the most important aspects of the jewelry industry.

Consider, for example, that your humble, insignificant-looking jewelry scale can be the difference between a great transaction and losing money. With a substance as precious as gold, even a few tenths of an ounce can represent a lot of money. For that reason, you have to make sure that when you're weighing jewelry, your scale is accurate.

Moisture analyzers help researches determine the amount of moisture within a product. They accomplish this by measuring the weight of a product once is has completely dried over a certain period of time. This measurement is called, LOD. The LOD helps researchers solve a variety of issues from product durability to shelf life. These analyzers dry products using microwaves or infrared heaters mounted on top of the scale.


Without moisture analysis, many industries would not be able to regulate society's most valuable products. From the food industry to the pharmaceutical industry, moisture analyzers play a significant part in determining an item quality and efficiency of use.

Washdown scales aren't exactly the most glamorous piece of equipment. In fact, they don't even have a very glamorous life. They get slopped on, wet, dirty, and trampled on a semi-regular basis. What most people don't consider though is that washdown scales are absolutely imperative to many industries, and the research world is just one of them. Think for a moment about medical research. What comes to mind is probably mice and rats, but those aren't the only animals that are used to find cures for modern diseases.

No two scales are alike. They differ on capacity, accuracy, and construction. These qualities contribute to the overall functionality of a scale as to whether it measures correctly or not. It is important to consider this when trying to find affordable scales that are right for business or laboratory use.

 

Differences in Scales

 

There are many kinds of scales. Each one is designed with different capacities and accuracies for specific jobs. Some are designed for more delicate work in microgram ranges while others are constructed to meet heavy-duty industrial uses in kilograms
