LECO Solutions For Moisture/Ash Analysis

Automated moisture or moisture/ash determination with a primary loss on drying method for replacing the slow labor intensive, manual air oven method is ideal for most applications in the foods, feeds, and milling products industry. LECO‘s cutting-edge thermal gravimetric analysers, TGM800 and TGA801, are industry leaders in every field and run simultaneously for 10 up to 38 samples! Flexible method settings, automation, and hardware capabilities deliver an automated analysis process while requiring only the manual measurement of the initial sample mass, for maximum productivity in your lab.


Specific Advantages Including

  • Improved work flow efficiency
  • Minimal operator time
  • Maximized sample batch throughput
  • Automated end point recognition based upon sample mass constancy
  • Optimal analysis time
  • Stable and precise mass measurements
