Moisture Tester MT-CA

An electronic moisture meter that works on the principle of heat drying in circulating air (oven drying method). In this method, the sample’s loss of weight resulting from the drying procedure is determined.

Your advantages

  • Efficient: simultaneous analysis of up to 10 samples possible
  • Standardized: international reference method
  • Accurate: Gentle, uniform drying temperature (up to 200°C) for precise results
  • MetaBridge software: Easy and flexible data access via a web browser or the built-in touch screen
  • Connectivity: Support for third-party solutions (ERP, LIMS)

Fully automatic measurement of moisture in the widest range of materials

With the moisture tester, you can analyse up to ten samples at once. There is no need for calibration, cooling times and the weighing of sample quantities, which results in enormous time savings. Thanks to cooling in the desiccator, distorted results and weighing errors are avoided.

You are able to freely select the desired drying time. Fully automatic reweighing following drying, along with the recording of drying curves, guarantees maximum convenience of use. And what’s more, the large touch screen means that operation is child’s play. Plus the new, web-based MetaBridge software enables you to access your measurement results across all sites and platforms.

Cross-product benefits


Brabender devices with this function have a built-in computer and a touch display. This allows our customers to directly and easily start operating our devices without any IT experience. Combined with other Brabender technologies such as EmbeddedHC, this results in a very compact device setup.


The Brabender’s EmbeddedHC technology fully integrates a high performance heating and cooling architecture into the measurement device. Consequently, the need for additional external components like circulators is avoided allowing for high compactness of the complete measurement setup. Furthermore, it provides high heating and cooling rates which typically lead to short measurement times.


Brabender’s cross-device software solution provides a consistent user experience between all Brabender units. The MetaBridge comes with various data evaluation functionality, preimplemented standards and customizable measurement methods in order to meet application specific requirements. Regular updates improve and expand your device and let you automatically benefit from the latest trends and developments.

MetaBridge Connect

The MetaBridge Connect technology provides various data exchange interfaces and flexible connectivity features. Data sharing between all Brabender MetaBridge devices in one network allows for smart workflows and process efficiency. Moreover, the integrated web-based software interface (WebAPI) connects and automatically exchanges data with natively connected database systems and / or 3rd party laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) or ERP solutions.

MetaBridge labfolder

labfolder allows you to store, manage and search your measurement data in one central location, independent of the instrument. Brabender MetaBridge instruments have an automated built-in connection to labfolder. It’s never been easier to get started with lab digitization.

MetaBrigde Database

The MetaBrigde Database represents a local data center in the customer network and a basic laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) for Brabender devices. Connected Brabender devices transfer measurement results automatically into the central MetaBridge database. Besides of the backup functionality, statistical analysis and crossdevice correlations between multiple data sets can be performed.
