Trust the MOC63u for Both Speedy and Accurate Measurements:
Moisture ratio measurements are indispensable for quality control and as checks of raw materials in a variety of industries including food products, chemistry, and pharmaceuticals.
The MOC63u electronic moisture analyzer is capable of accurate, quick and easy moisture ratio measurements.
Just place the sample in the sample pan and close the cover to start the measurement.
This instrument can accommodate virtually any sample, and will contribute to enhanced user productivity.
Select the automatic starting mode, place the sample, and close the heater cover to start the measurements. The preparation for measurement is so simple that you do not even have to press the start key.
The Sample Pan Size Is a Spacious 95 mm Dia.
Generally, the wider, thinner, and more uniformly the sample is spread, the more precise the measurement. Uniform heating is provided by adopting a cleverly
shaped reflector (patent pending).
A Wealth of PC Connection Functions:
A USB connector is built in as standard for connecting to a PC.
It can also be used in conjunction with the WindowsDirect function (patented).
Note) For Windows Vista, Windows 7, and USB port connections, check the Shimadzu website,
or contact your Shimadzu representative.

Measurement of Milk:
??? Fiberglass sheets for liquid measurement were used to promote liquid
??? Two measurement conditions were used, timed ending and automatic
ending modes. Essentially the same average values were obtained.
With samples whose principal component has a relatively high
evaporation temperature and also contains moisture, the same results
will be obtained regardless of the mode used.
Measurement of Instant Coffee:
??? Commercially available powdered instant coffee was measured. A
sample of approximately 1 g was placed in the pan, and the pan was
shaken to spread the sample over the entire pan.
??? Essentially no difference in the moisture ratio was evident in timed
ending mode or automatic ending mode. When a high drying
temperature is set to shorten the drying time, the radiant heat from the
halogen lamp becomes significant, and sample surfaces are sometimes
scorched. Accordingly, with colored samples and samples prone to
degradation, it is better to set as low a drying temperature as possible.
Measurement of White Rice:
??? Polished koshihikari rice was used as the sample. The grains were
measured as is, without pulverization.
??? Almost no rice bran remained, so it was assumed that any lost weight
would be due solely to moisture evaporation. There were few volatile
components aside from moisture, so favorable repeatability was
??? The entire sample turned yellow after drying. This was likely due to
