Moisture meter for plastics according to DIN EN ISO 15512:2019 „Plastics – Determina-tion of water content“
For 30 years, the AQUATRAC has been the measuring instrument for the residual moisture content in solids for the plastics processing industry. It has a robust and compact design and can be easily transported due to its well-known mobility. Therefore, there are many possibilities for direct use at the production site, for example in the production of
- Incoming goods inspection
- Monitoring and optimization of the granulate drying process
- Measurement of the granulate on the machine/ machine hopper
- Measurement on the finished part, e.g. after conditioning or final inspection
- Laboratory measurement
The measuring procedure is convenient and completely natural to use. The sample is weighed, whereby there is a prescribed weighing range, which guarantees a practical procedure. The weight read on the scale is entered. The sample is then filled into the sample container and the reagent insert is filled with calcium hydride. Both are automatically evacuated in the closed reaction vessel by the built-in pump, which takes about 30 seconds. The vacuum achieved is <10 mbar absolute. The reaction vessel with the sample is then heated; temperatures between 60 °C and 200 °C are freely selectable. The few necessary operating steps are carried out on the AQUATRAC-V via the touch display. The entire procedure is intuitive and carried out within 2 minutes.
