Brabender Aquatrac-V Moisture Analyser
Brabender Messtechnik Aquatrac-V Moisture Meter for Plastics
Described in ISO 15512:2019 “Plastics – Determination of water Content” as measuring method E.
The water content of High-Tech plastic material has a great influence on the quality of the finished product. The test should be made swiftly on an instrument having a simple test procedure.
AQUATRAC®-V is the result of continual further development of the popular AQUATRAC product, which has been on the market for over 20 years now. Developed primarily for the plastics-processing industry, the device measures the moisture content of granular solids. AQUATRAC®-V is robust, compact and easily transportable thanks to its new mobility! This means there are many different ways to use AQUATRAC®-V directly at the production site, for example:
• To check incoming granulates
• To monitor and optimise the drying of granulates
• To measure granulates right at the machine
• To take measurements from a finished component, e.g. after conditioning
• To take laboratory measurements
• And many more!
As the principle of operation is an absolute chemical method, no calibration is required for each different substance tested. AQUATRAC®-V can be used independently of a computer or other peripheral.
