Manages your Sophisticated Tasks

To be able to perform fast and precise analysis on a diverse range of product samples, you need a reliable instrument that gives you maximum flexibility. The MA160 uses the thermogravimetric method to determine the moisture content of liquid, pasty and solid substances – conveniently, reliably and in a minimum of time. It delivers prompt, repeatable results and supports the development of new methods – in three uncomplicated and intuitive steps.

The MA160 manages the generated methods professionally and securely and allows them to be transferred to other instruments.

During a measurement, a status lamp indicates the current measurement status. Additionally, the ergonomic BetterClean design of the MA160 allows efficient and simple cleaning of the device. Using integrated performance testing, the MA160 verifies its functionality at the touch of a button – ensuring permanent and flawless performance.

Features of MA160

High-speed measurements

Both the high-performance AURI heater and the sample chamber’s geometry ensure rapid heating and a homogeneous and swift sample drying.

Large memory capacity

The memory capacity allows the user to store up to 100 different methods and manage them in a method library.

Fast and precise method development

The MA160‘s method assistant solves the time-consuming problem of determining and evaluating the right parameters. It enables you to develop new methods quickly in just three simple steps.

Display of measurement status

The status lamp indicates the current measurement status during the measurement: “running | START”, “process finished | STOP”, “analyzer OFF” or “error”. It is visible from a distance of up to 10 meters.

Reliable performance testing

The ReproEasy Pad gives you the option to regularly verify the functionality of the MA160. It guarantees reliable results during routine use.
