Sartorius MA100 moisture balanceSartorius scale MA-50, 100 Moisture analyzers featuring the ultimate in measuring accuracy and functionality.  Flexible for use in research, development and quality control.  Resolutions from 0.0001 g to 0.001 g, capacities from 50 g to 100 g.

Sartorius MA50/100 gravimetric moisture analyzers are available with either a ceramic infrared heating element or a halogen lamp.  The ceramic unit rapidly attains the final temperature to ensure a uniform distribution of infrared rays over the entire sample surface, thus eliminating localized burning.  The halogen lamp is suited for applications that require accelerated temperature regulation during sample drying.

Other innovations include integration of the heat source into the chamber cover.  The motorized heating unit opens and shuts at the touch of a key eliminating the need to use a hood.  This system minimizes handling of the sample, speeding up the process and thereby preventing predrying during weigh-in.  The motorized heat source also reduces exposure of the weighing mechanism to mechanical vibration.

The new premium infrared moisture analyzers with highest accuracy is the MA100 achieving an accuracy of 0.1 mg for research and development or quality control.


  • Measures the moisture content of 0.2 % to 100 % down to 0.1 g resolution
  • "ASAP" mode: automatic (endpoint) searching/automatic programming for quick determination of the drying parameters and easy programming of a drying routine
  • Choice of two infrared heat sources: either the ceramic heating element, which is extremely fast because it evenly heats a sample, or the easy-to-regulate halogen lamp
  • User-friendly design of the moisture analyzer with motorized heat source
  • Easy to clean
  • A data printer can be optionally integrated into the analyzer housing to meet ISO/GLP requirements
  • MA100C/MA100H offer fast and easy control of the accuracy through DIN/ISO-compliant self-testing and self-calibrating capabilities thanks to the built-in calibration weight and reproTEST function

The display is divided into section providing clear information of the operation running.  The top of the display shows the drying program and test function in process.  

Infrared rays penetrate the sample without being impeded.  Having reached the interior of a sample, they are converted into heat energy, which stimulates evaporation, thus drying the sample.

Warning - Moisture balances should not be used on any volatile organic sample with flash points.  Even a MSDS rating of 1.  Samples with low flask points like Acetaldehyde -38°C or MEK -4°C should not be used with the Sartorius MA Series Moisture Balance and maybe you should look at Karl Fisher as an alternative.

Although you might presently perform analysis with an oven on these samples the ovens typically have ventilation and a much larger cavity than the typical moisture balance that operates on the principles of TGA.  In addition, with most moisture balances there is no ventilation so all the fumes remain inside the hood of the moisture balance.  We strongly recommend you consult with a safety specialist always prior to using any moisture balances for your safety.
