Moisture Analysis

Moisture analysis of plastics
Moisture analysis in the form of the HYDROTRACER HT3® Moisture Meter for Plastics from Aboni.

The water content of High-Tech plastic material has considerable effect on the quality of the finished product. Testing needs to be performed simply and accurately using a dedicated instrument.

The HYDROTRACER HT3® moisture analyser uses a modified Calcium Hydride method as described in ISO 15512:2019 “Plastics – Determination of water Content, method E.”

Aboni have been designing moisture analysis equipment for over 25 years. The HYDROTRACER HT3® has been painstakingly designed and developed to reliably measure the residual moisture content of pellets, powders or finished parts.

As the principle of operation is an absolute chemical method, no calibration is required to the respective test material.

Connected to a PC via USB cable, HYDROTRACER HT3® easy to use software guides the operator step-by-step through the moisture analysis measurement process and saves the results in a concise PDF report.
