Leco Corp. Introduces TGA-601 Thermogravimetric Analyzer for Moisture/Ash Determination in Wheat Flours
Date Posted: February 28, 2002
St. Joseph, MI--The TGA-601 Thermogravimetric Analyzer from LECO Corporation measures percent total Moisture/Ash in Wheat Flours with drastically reduced analysis time and greater analytical precision-optimizing standard AOAC and AACC Moisture/Ash Determination methods.
Effectively determining Moisture/Ash content within 4.25 hours in Hard and Soft Wheat Flours at various Moisture/Ash levels, the TGA-601 features a built-in balance (sensitivity to ±0.0001 gram) that is located inside of a ceramic heating cavity.
The balance individually weighs up to 19 ceramic crucibles (each capable of holding one to five grams of sample) positioned on a rotating carousel.
Sample weight measurements are recorded as numerical values and as a graphical representation using Window-based operational software.
Temperatures of the internal ceramic heating cavity are adjusted with enhanced thermal property controls.
Temperatures may be stepped up and ramped (from 25° to 1000° C) per desired application methods.
The TGA-601 is also capable of variable gas introduction (oxygen, nitrogen, or air) via a built-in lance assembly.
