Moisture analyser ULTRA X 3081WQ


The UX 3081WQ moisture analyser is a special instrument for measuring moisture in most liquid and solid substances and materials. The operating principle is that substances are dried and weighed at the same time. The weight loss is shown in %. In order to achieve reproducible results for light-weight and bulky materials, the UX 3081WQ was designed with an XXL drying tray for the relevant batch quantities.

The UX 3081WQ can be used to measure samples e.g. brass chips at up to around 360 °C. It is also possible to measure samples weighing up to 400 g and with a volume of 360 cm³.

A separate printer is available for the UX 3081WQ.

All data and parameters including date and time are also output via the RS 232 interface in accordance with GLP.

Operating instructions

Weigh the sample, pivot the radiator above it and switch it on, the measurement ends when the weight is constant. The parameters are set using three buttons in the menu. In addition to the moisture and solid material, additional measurement parameters can also be displayed.

The radiation temperature can also be set anywhere between up to 200 or rather 360 °C. The moisture content can be determined using a timer or the automatic cut-out. Three criteria are individually set for the automatic cut-out depending on the product properties. The measurement result remains on the display until the device is next used.

This device is specialy suitable for bulky substances or bulky substances resistant to high temperarures suche as brass chipps.

The reusable stainless steel sample dishes, size: 110 x 230 x 18 mm enable a higher weighing volume and mean ongoing cost savings.

ULTRA X 3081D moisture analyser
The ULTRA X 3081 can optionally be delivered with a separate 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.
