3 Ways A Reliable Moisture Meter Will Ensure Consistent Product Quality

Posted by John Bogart on Wed, Aug 14, 2013

Henry Ford is quoted as saying, “Don’t find fault, find a remedy.” Product development, quality assurance and quality control specialists are trained to identify faults, ensuring the product meets both internal and external standards. While a myriad of factors can affect product quality, you would be hard pressed to find one that has as large a role as moisture in creating many of these ‘faults.’ But what is the remedy?  A moisture meter, the right moisture meter!

KJT130 Moisture Meter: 10 Benefits of Taking the Lab to the Sample

Posted by John Bogart on Wed, Jul 10, 2013

R&D, quality control and quality analysis department laboratories are rife with a variety of spectrometers. These test instruments improve the bottom line of manufacturing companies, ensuring products meet standard market parameters with minimal waste. While a variety of instruments utilize infrared spectroscopy, near- infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is specifically useful in analyzing bulk materials, often with no sample preparation.

NIR test equipment has evolved over the past decade to be used in a wide variety of analysis applications. Currently, these spectrometers are employed across nearly all manufacturing lines, measuring everything from pharmaceuticals to food and beverages, and spanning the chemical, beauty, packaging, coating, medical supply and agricultural industries. Just one spectrometer can be used to confirm the state and quality of bulk materials or raw ingredients, assess intermediate products in a processing line and confirm that final goods are ready to meet consumers’ expectations.

Traditionally, samples are brought to the lab, where these high-tech machines stand ready. However, walking a sample from the field, stockroom or factory line is time-consuming, prohibited to a limited size and shape of the sample, and introduces unwanted variables. In response to these limitations, we’ve designed portable spectrometers, like the KJT130 moisture meter, to meet the real needs of QA, QC and R&D specialists.

Here’s why we believe operations or development teams would be hard pressed to find a better investment.
