Able to measure the water content of samples to a standard regardless of ambient conditions, the Decagon TrueDry CV-9 moisture meter dries samples by passing heated, desiccated air over each of them until achieving a uniform value of 1% relative humidity. As each sample dries, the meter monitors its weight by cycling it onto an electromagnetic balance for repeated weight measurements. The controlled contact drying technology makes it possible to analyze samples at lower temperatures to eliminate the loss of materials other than water. The meter is suitable for food and pet food products.
