One, Simple to Use Instrument to Optimize Yield, Usage and Quality

kb30The KB30 Moisture Meter provides instant, non-contact, non destructive moisture measurement of any liquid or solid utilizing near-infrared (NIR) technology. Easily mounted over a process line, a product can be instantly measured without contact or sample preparation. Scientists and engineers can continuously evaluate their products remotely, and even optimize yield, usage and quality after connecting the KB30 Moisture Meter to a PLC or Controller. 




Industry Standard Moisture Measurement Now at Affordable Prices

fd660The FD660 Moisture Balance, provides rapid, direct measurement of moisture or solid content in any liquid or solid within minutes, and generally requires no sample preparation before testing.

Designed for years of use in the most stressful environments, the FD660 moisture balance offers reliable results in the laboratory or near-line process control applications, where quick, accurate moisture readings are required.   A full-featured moisture balance, it uses two unique organic carbon heating elements- providing twice the efficiency of halogen lamps and lasting four times longer than traditional systems.  These improvements give users substantially lower total-cost-of-ownership (TCO). It is also the only moisture balance in its price range to offer a “pre-heat” mode, eliminating measurement error during testing.



Kett backs both new instruments with a unique one-year, “Total Care” manufacturer’s warranty on parts, labor and specification compliance. Get complete brochures on these exciting new additions to the Kett product from booth #3402.
