Universal Moisture Analyzer:
Brabender MT-CA

  • +6
  • Meets grain, flour, and tobacco testing standards
  • Globally proven method for moisture meter calibration
  • Simultaneous measurement of 10 samples saves time
  • Precise moisture analysis for various powders and solids
  • MetaBridge software for data access at MT-CA or mobile device

The MT-CA moisture analyzer, using automated oven drying, measures raw material moisture in a measuring range of >0.1 and up to 99.9 % moisture content. It reduces test times by 65 % and avoids weighing errors by eliminating the cooling step in the desiccator and automatic back-weighing after drying. It’s the perfect choice for moisture determination of powders like flour, tobacco, and solid items with predefined methods that meet international standards. The MetaBridge software connects devices, lets you select drying times, enables real-time data sharing, and monitors tests. The MT-CA moisture meter is your ticket to precise determination of drying curves confirming actual moisture content.

Key features

The industry standard

The industry standard

The MT-CA serves as the reference method for calibrating other moisture meters, making it the industry standard. It adheres to essential national and international standards for moisture testing in various raw materials like flour (ICC, ISO) and tobacco (EC Regulation). This guarantees confidence in material quality throughout the entire supply chain.
