Professional Moisture Analyser For Advanced Moisture Analysis

Faster, Smarter, More Efficient Moisture Analysis!

Moisture affects everything we use on a daily basis therefore in many cases it is important to be able to accurately determine the moisture content of samples. Equipped to handle routine and sophisticated measurements, our flagship MB120 moisture analyzer makes the whole process faster, easier, and more efficient. The MB120 allows you to analyze more samples, access saved data, and spend less time prepping and more time putting your results to work.

Unique Features:

•Get started quickly with SmartGuide™. This revolutionary feature automatically analyzes a sample and creates a method, thereby removing the guesswork from the initial setup.

• The MB120 has the capability to produce fast and accurate results due to features such as a halogen heating system, customizable shut-off criteria and four built-in drying profiles.
• The MB120’s allows storage of up to 100 methods and 1,000 measurement results. Stored results can be exported and methods can be shared across multiple devices.

Simple and Powerful Moisture Analysis!


SmartGuide™ automatically analyzes a sample and creates a method, simplifying the method creation process and removes the guesswork
from the initial setup.

Fast and Efficient Halogen Heating Technology
Halogen heating dries samples efficiently and in a fraction of the time versus a traditional MB120 has a full operating temperature range of
40–230 °C, settable in 1-degree increments.

Uniform Drying for Precise, Repeatable Results

The reflective sample chamber ensures uniform heating of each sample to yield reliable results of 0.01 % readability.

Four Drying Profiles

Customize heating of specific samples with various drying programs; Standard, Fast, Ramp, and Step.
Fast: Quickest possible time to temperature
Standard: Minimal overshoot while achieving temperatures quickly
Ramp: Controlled ramping to temperatures

Step: Set three temperatures at three time intervals

Flexible and Configurable Shut-Off Criteria

Customize your own test endpoint criteria to automatically end the test once moisture loss is no longer detected. Choose one of the built-in
standard criterion or define your own.

Advanced Functionality

• Internal Method Library
Store methods for up to 100 different samples – methods can be easily recalled and transferred to other units for quick setup.

Internal Result Storage
The MB120 will store 1000 results which can be group or individually for further analysis.

User Management
With User Management, MB120 provides operational control and aids compliance by restricting access so that unauthorized users may use the device but not change settings.

RS232 and USB Ports
Quick connections to a printer, PC or flash drive.

Easy to Use and Maintain

Graphic Display with Touchscreen
Navigate the device easily with an intuitive user interface on a bright, color, and easy-to-read graphic display.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below for answers to frequently asked questions.

A calibration certificate proves the accuracy of your weighing equipment. It is very likely that if accuracy matters in your workplace, certification will be required by your industry regulators. They are straightforward to get hold of though. Just ask our team.

If you are trading or transacting anything by weight, you will probably need to demonstrate your weighing equipment is verified for trade use. This gives your customers confidence in your business and will make sure buying and selling run smoothly. We can help get you with relevant approvals for your equipment.

The answer will vary depending on how your equipment is used. As a minimum, we typically recommend once a year but our team can provide advice based on your individual circumstances.

The International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) has established standards for the classification of calibration test weights. Varying from E0 & E1, which are the most accurate to M2 which are commonly used for calibrating platform scales, floor scales and other industrial weighing instruments.

As a rough guide we have listed desired accuracy against class below.

+/- 0.1% – UNclassed Proof Load Test Weights
+/- 0.05% – M3 (Check/calibrate coarse scales)
+/- 0.005% – M1 (Check/calibrate standard scales)
+/- 0.0015% – F2 (Check/calibrate portable balances)
+/- 0.0005% – F1 (Check/calibrate precision balances)
+/- 0.00015% – E2 (Check/calibrate analytical balances)

The choice of weight class depends on the intended use and the level of accuracy required for a particular application. If you’re unsure, talk to our team who can advise you on the right class for your equipment.

If you’re sending a scale back to us for recalibration, it is ideal to use the original packaging. If this is not available choose a sturdy well-padded box to avoid shocks. Where possible, protect the load sensor by removing the weighing pan and any under-pan support and pack these separately in the box. You may be able to use the equipment’s locking pins or screws too.

Do ensure all the paperwork, including your contact details, is included to ensure we can return it once calibration is complete.
