ASD has raised the bar, yet again, for analytical lab equipment with the introduction of the LabSpec 4 Standard-Res laboratory analyzer. Employing state-of-the-art near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, the portable spectrometer can quickly and nondestructively measure a wide range of materials with absolute precision.
Optimized to provide the most precise material analysis in the shortest amount of time, the LabSpec 4 Hi-Res spectrometer is the ideal analytical instrument for fast-moving laboratory environments.
Configured specifically for fixed-location analysis with AC power, the LabSpec 4 Bench benchtop analyzer provides all the performance of ASD’s LabSpec laboratory spectrometer line in a space-saving and cost-efficient design.
The determination of moisture is often a critical component in manufacturing processes and quality assurance. Moisture analysis is applicable across a variety of industrial applications where precise moisture in percentage amounts is monitored as a specification, or the moisture content is highly controlled for product or material integrity. Moisture analysis is commonly used in:
Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, sometimes called NIRS, can detect the water content and activity in a wide range of materials, and over a large range of concentrations. ASD’s portable and at-line Vis/NIR systems are ideally suited for the real-time measurement of moisture with easy-to-use, non-destructive testing in just about any environment. Concentrations ranging from 0.01% and up can be accommodated by selection of the appropriate wavelength range, thus making ASD’s technology the ideal tool for accurate and flexible moisture analysis in raw and in-process materials, as well as finished product.
Save significant time and money!
Traditional laboratory methods such as loss on drying (LOD) require time consuming steps such as oven heating and dry time in a desiccator to determine the loss of weight. Even newer automated moisture analysis equipment still requires a few minutes of drying time to determine the drying curve. All of these techniques require sample prep, and upon completion of the procedure, the sample is destroyed.
