Drying Oven vs. Halogen Moisture Analyzer

A Practical Guide to Compare Methods

Moisture determinations need to be carried out rapidly and reliably so that any interventions in the production process can be made promptly. To measure moisture content, typically loss on drying (LOD) is performed using a drying oven as the reference method.

However this is time-consuming and prone to errors due to the complexity of the handling and calculations involved. Halogen moisture analyzers (HMA) are faster than the reference method, provide results without extra calculations, and are suitable for at-line use.

The white paper Drying Oven vs. Halogen Moisture Analyzer discusses both methods and provides practical guidance to validate the HMA against the standard drying oven method.
