KEY BENEFITS

  • Instant Measurement – both online, handheld and desktop instruments
  • Non-Contact – handheld and online models – no contamination
  • Non-Destructive – all models – samples can be used for additional assays
  • Moisture meter can be used for both liquids and solids
A Near-Infrared Light Source is reflected off of the liquid or solid sample. The light resonates with the appropriate molecule(s) and a portion of the light is absorbed. The higher the measured component, the higher the amount of absorbed light. After calibration, the composition values can be instantly measured without sample preparation.  Multiple organic components are measured in single test.

Calibrations and calibration points are stored within the analyzers, providing tremendous versatility for the diversified manufacturer. Moisture, protein, fat, cellulose and other organic compounds can be measured.

INDUSTRY APPLICATION DESCRIPTION
Food Buying and Receiving Ensure that suppliers are providing the product required for shelf-life stability (acceptable water activity) and profitability.
Pulp/Paper Dryer Cans Analyze the web for wet streaks and uneven drying - without contact or sample alteration.
Chemicals Tunnel Dryers Instant analysis optimizes dryer efficiency and production throughput.
Pharmaceuticals Fluid-bed and Spray Dryers On-line and in-line moisture measurement improves granulation consistency.
Polymer Films Process Control Optimization Online/inline measurement of the moisture content substantially reduces energy used in the process while ensuring appropriate low levels of moisture are achieved.

KJT130 – Handheld Portable Instant Moisture Meter
The latest in our exclusive portable moisture analyzer line. The user simply points the instrument at the product and the moisture content is instantly shown on the large digital display – without contact and without any type of sample alteration. Can be used with liquids, pastes and solids and can test both stationary and moving (process line) products.

Moisture measurement data may be stored in the instrument, downloaded continuously, or simply manually recorded. Smart sensor design provides for use without need for any PC or controller interface. Minimal maintenance ensures years of life – even in very stressful process or field environments.

Desktop Instant Compostion analyzer - non-destructive, NIR - Kett

KJT230 -Desktop Instant Moisture Meter
This classic instrument is a acclaimed for it 0.001 precision and elegant simplicity. Simply place the sample onto the integrated sample dish. The KJT230 automatically starts the the test, rotating the sample for 6-10 seconds until the microprocessor determines the average moisture content. The result is displayed on the large digital display. The instrument automatically adjusts for changes in the ambient environment between each test to ensure a lifetime of measurement accuracy. Tested in the finest R&D labs worldwide, the KJT230 is durable enough to be used near the process line – even in the most taxing production environments.

HOW IT WORKS

A Near-Infrared Light Source is reflected off of the liquid or solid sample. The light resonates with the appropriate molecule(s) and a portion of the light is absorbed. The higher the moisture content, the higher the amount of absorbed light. After calibration, the moisture concentration values can be instantly measured without sample preparation.

Calibrations and calibration points are stored within the analyzers, providing tremendous versatility for the diversified manufacturer. Moisture can be measured in the lab, near line (desktop), and online/inline throughout the manufacturing process, or in field applications with our unique handheld portables.
