Effective use of moisture balance

Moisture is a crucial factor is weighing with regards to certain applications. Amount of moisture can significantly manipulate results. So, it is very important to measure the moisture properly. A moisture balance is used to determine moisture levels in chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food products, grains, wood, soils, and sludge. Moisture content can directly impact product quality as well as research applications. To determine moisture in the product, there is a methodology to be followed.
First, use the balance to measure its original weight, dry the product, and then assess the decrease by the change in weight. This gives a correct calculation of moisture content. Certain features of moisture balance are, measuring percentage of initial substance, measuring percentage of residual dry mass, measuring solid percentage, temperature per time recording, drying curve, heating elements such as quartz halogen lamps, circular halogen, infrared etc.
Enhanced features of a moisture balance include multiple drying modes such as automatic or semi-automatic or times, programmable memory, space-saving design, built-in statistical functions etc.
For effective use of moisture balance, certain things have to be taken care of. While using halogen lamps, use two or a circular one to cover more surface area. Ceramic heating elements quickly rise to the designated temperature ensuring even heat distribution over the entire surface and preventing localised overheating. Infrared heat dries very quickly as compared to halogen lamp. Microwave also dries up products very fast. However precise heat control is necessary while drying with this method.
While setting up a moisture-balance, let the unit warm up for around 30 minutes. While using glucose syrup or pasty substances, mix with quartz sand. Always make sure that the surface area in uniform, without unbalanced distribution.

Weighbridge care and maintenance

Weighbridges are available in various types and models and they provide great convenience in weighing heavy loads. The platforms, manoeuvring, calibration and display all are important facilities that add to the efficiency of the weighbridges in providing accurate weights. Following care should be taken to maintain these weighbridges properly:

      1.    Approach the weighbridge slowly: Rough handling can lead to damage and destruction as these have to be used for heavy loads. So, it is advised to approach the weighbridge slowly and place the load carefully.

       2.    Disconnect power during storms: Electronic weighing systems in the weighbridges are environment-friendly but it is advisable to switch off the power during storms so that weighing mechanism and display can be protected from sudden fluctuations of electrical voltage.

       3.    Do not weld on the weighbridge deck: For ensuring optimum performance of the weighbridge, care  should be taken that the deck of the weighbridge is not used for welding purpose as the sparking and          welding procedure may lead to damage.  

       4.  Do not hit the brakes: It is advised to use the brakes softly to ensure long-term smooth  performance.  Hitting brakes may lead to spoiling of the mechanism.

      5.  Ensure regular servicing: Regular oiling and servicing of the machinery definitely improves ife and performance of any machine and so it is advisable to do these things regularly.

      6.  Use a Good quality power source: Misfit switches and bad wiring can lead to poor conduction and thereby damage the electronic mechanism. If a good quality power source is used, good performance will be guaranteed.

      7.  Keep the weighbridge Clean: Dirt and mess will affect the functioning of the weighbridge and so it should be kept clean.

      8.   Maintain the travel Restraints: Carefully observe the travel restraints indicated for the weighbridge in order to assure good performance and lengthen its working life.

Weigh me right! - Baby weighing scales

                The best indicator of the growth of your little baby is its weight. There can be no margin for error in this regard. Wrong measurement of weight means wrong line of nutrition for the baby. Baby weighing scales therefore have to give correct results. A perfect baby weighing scale can help you chalk out an accurate graph of the baby’s growth. Besides, baby weighing scales have to be convenient to place the baby easily, the finishing of the baby weighing scale has to be smooth to ensure that t baby is not hurt and the design has to be such that the baby is safe in the baby weighing scale. Or baby weighing scales meet all of these requirements perfectly. Every doctor and parent using this baby weighing scale is happy about its ease, convenience and perfection.
