Moisture/Solids/Ash Analyzer Computrac MAX 5000XL

The Computrac® MAX®-5000 is the most comprehensive of the MAX®-Series instruments. Aside from moisture analysis in solids and liquids it can also be used as an ash analyzer for up to 600°C, if desired even during the same test! Features include self-cleaning oven and ashing rate control as well as connectivity to the company wide IT infrastructure.

The Computrac MAX 5000XL advances the state of the art in rapid moisture and ash analysis with a new temperature controlled balance that provides users with more stable and accurate measurements. The new instrument also features a temperature ramp control feature that allows the MAX 5000XL to be used for qualitative analyses that were previously only possible using a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA).

The new MAX 5000XL features the same intuitive user interface and rugged design as its predecessor, the MAX 5000. Improvements to the design and high temperature performance of the balance system of the MAX 5000XL now make it possible to accurately analyze materials with ash concentrations of as little as 0.5%.

Results gained from this test are similar to a scan performed by a more expensive thermogravimetric analyzer. This new feature effectively transforms the MAX 5000XL into a dual use instrument capable of quantitatively testing for moisture and ash and qualitatively testing for the presence of certain organic or inorganic ingredients, and the degradation temperature of the material under test.
