Moisture Tester MT-CA
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.
From the list of methods, select the desired method, with drying temperature, drying time and sample weight with tolerance range. The precision electronic scales enable you to weigh various sample sizes in the range 1g to 20g.
The sample is placed on the rotary plate and drying begins. The material to be analysed will later be weighed directly in the drying area. Test materials can be inserted at different times, even when other materials are still drying.

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.
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.
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.
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.
