Standard Oven Drying Methods vs. TGM800: Direct Moisture Determination

Jolanda Nortjé, Laboratory Manager of The Southern African Grain Laboratory (SAGL), had a problem. Working with grains meant a lot of thermogravimetric analyses, but standard oven drying methods were incredibly time-consuming. Depending on the flour matrix, oven times could range from 1 hour to 17. Whole grains could take a full 72 hours. When LECO Africa reached out with a suggestion of a better way, Nortjé was happy to give it a try. She agreed to participate in a comparison of a primarymoisture loss-on-drying determination using the TGM800 and standard oven drying methods.

Frustrated by the time it takes you to determine moisture?

Today's laboratories are constantly being asked to do more with less resources, which can leave your lab stressed, frustrated, and overwhelmed. We want you and your laboratory to succeed by getting the results you can count on, while making life in your lab easier and more streamlined. Our latest innovation for the analysis of moisture effortlessly analyzes your food, feeds, milled products, and agricultural samples. 

Are you frustrated with the time it takes to analyze for moisture using the traditional loss-on-drying technique? Save time in your lab using our TGM800 thermogravimetric moisture determinator, designed to provide a high-precision, automated solution while using a primary loss-on-drying method, eliminating the need for the labor-intensive manual loss on drying technique.
