COLUMBUS, Ohio (August 5, 2014) – Moisture determination is a critical test for many food, pharmaceutical, and plastic products, amongst others. Moisture content not only affects the quality of the product and its shelf life, but is also a highly regulated characteristic for trade purposes. Although simple in theory, moisture determination demands knowledge, practice and the right instrument. To provide insight into moisture determination in all regards, METTLER TOLEDO will offer a live webinar on Better Moisture Determination on Thursday, August 21, 2014.

Moisture determination seems simple at first, but has many factors, both human and environmental, which can lead to erroneous results. With such a wide variety of techniques available; drying ovens, a multitude of moisture analyzers using various heating techniques, Karl Fischer titration and others, it can be difficult to know which is best suited for which sample type. The Better Moisture Determination webinar will compare the various techniques available as well as suitable samples for METTLER TOLEDO’s Halogen Moisture Analyzers.

METTLER TOLEDO's Halogen Moisture Analyzer technique offers fast and simple operation with reliable results. Again, proper knowledge is needed to optimize the results with this technique. Environmental factors such as humidity and temperature play as important of a role as the correct instrument and settings, such as temperature and drying termination criteria. Moisture being everywhere, proper sample handling is necessary to not alter the sample’s moisture content as it is being prepared for analysis. This webinar will cover the proper environment, instrument and settings to analyze samples for moisture as well good sample handling practices.

Whether regulated or not, laboratories want to know they are getting the right result. The patented new SmartCal™ offers a fast (only 10 minutes) and simple way to verify if a moisture analyzer is working properly. SmartCal is standardized by an accredited laboratory and offers the compliancy documentation a regulated laboratory needs. SmartCal products and recommended frequencies of use will be discussed in the webinar offering simple and practical, yet thorough and well documented quality assurance.
