Moisture analyser ULTRA X 3031D


Rugged and accurate sampling for gypsum and materials with requirements of free and bound moisture. Suitable for laboratory and production application. A micro processor controlled weight loss dehydration method of moisture analysis offers a truly accurate and efficient result. This process uses infrared drying and continuous weight loss measurement.

The ULTRA X 3031 is equipped with an infrared (bright) heater and a quartz (dark) heater to dry out the moisture and the crystal moisture. All pre-selectable parameters are indicated on the clear LCD-display.

Beside the moisture 5 further data can be calculated, monitored and displayed. The final value of a measurement can be evaluated in two different ways: either by an automatic and product depending stop drying function „KonstaStop“ or via timer.

Further highlights are:

  • the pre-heating mode “Pre-Flash” for very moist materials
  • sensitivity adjustment for the scale depending on the ambient conditions
  • continuous cost savings through reusable stainless-steel bowls
  • standard interface V24 / RS 232
  • additional special accessories such as integrated or separate printers
  • software „DataChannel“ for Microsoft Excel and many more are available

The main criteria for this development have been the following:

  • easy handling
  • practice-orientated
  • robust execution

Operating instructions

Weigh the sample, pivot the radiator above it, the measurement starts automatically and ends when the weight is constant. Ground moisture is measured using the bright radiator, the crystal water is determined using the quartz radiator.

Both radiators can be operated separately from one another on a timer or automatically.
In addition to moisture and solids there is also an option to select additional measurement analyses. The moisture content can be determined using a timer or the automatic cut-out. Three criteria can be individually set for the automatic cut-out depending on the product properties: query start, weight reduction and query interval.
The measurement result remains on the display until the device is next used.

The reusable stainless steel sample dishes mean an ongoing cost saving.


Moisture analyser ULTRA X 3031D
The ULTRA X 3031 can optionally be delivered with or without a built-in printer. The printout of all data is carried out in line with GLP. Intermediate values can be printed out at selectable
intervals as needed. All of the data are also output via the serial RS 232 interface and USB. The printer can be switched off.
