Fundamentals of Moisture Analysis

The moisture content of pharmaceuticals, foods and plastics has a significant impact on their processing, quality, efficacy and shelf life. Accurate monitoring is therefore an essential element of quality control testing in a wide range of product development and manufacturing environments.

Maintaining the correct moisture content of products can be vital to ensure their quality and optimize processing. Moisture content can also affect the weight – and therefore price – of some products, and is governed by strict regulations in some markets (e.g. national food regulations). This straightforward guide discusses the key considerations for moisture analysis using halogen moisture analyzers, helping to ensure fast, efficient and reliable results.
