Original Press Release:

New Moisture Analyzers Save Time for Food Manufacturers

Greifensee, Switzerland —  METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the launch of its new high-speed Excellence HS153 Moisture Analyzer. These next-generation moisture analyzers are helping food manufacturers achieve highly precise moisture content analysis in less time than ever before through a combination of robust construction, easy operation and quick cleaning. Resulting productivity increases are helping manufacturers meet regulatory requirements and assure quality faster for true bottom-line enhancement.

For food manufacturers, speed-to-market pressure is high — but the kind of quality assurance that not only guarantees palatability but also ensures consumer safety is critical. So batch by batch, manufacturers must test a variety of attributes including moisture content to prevent spoilage and ensure products perform as expected to ensure repeat sales and brand stability. METTLER TOLEDO understands this critical combination and has ensured that the Excellence HS153 takes both precision and time-savings into account.

Whether the instrument is being used in a Lab or on the factory floor, the Excellence HS153 achieves highly reproducible results through advanced halogen technology combined with a high-performance MonoBloc weighing cell. The hanging pan distances the weighing cell from the heat source to reduce negative thermal effects. In addition, spills can no longer damage the weighing cell. The sample chamber is completely flat and sealed to facilitate cleaning in about 30 seconds for added time-savings.

To further promote speedy analysis and ease-of-use, a METTLER TOLEDO OneClickTM graphical user interface simplifies operation. Individual rights assignment means only the features required for a particular process are seen by the current user. Pass/Fail results are indicated by a color-coded display for instant analysis enhanced by real-time drying curves and integrated control charts.

The Excellence HS153 rounds out its easy-operation package with a USB flash drive that helps users quickly configure instruments for quick lab capital management and easy results-exporting.
