MOC-120H Electronic Moisture Analyzer

The moisture content of a variety of samples can be measured using an array of drying modes. The drying status can be seen at-a-glance with the fluctuation range display. Active in a variety of fields (cereals, starch, flour, noodles, brewed products, sea foods and marine products, meat products, spices, sweets, dairy products, dried foods, vegetable oils and other food articles; pharmaceuticals; ores; cokes; glass materials; cement; chemical fertilizers; pulp and paper; cotton; various fabrics and other industrial goods); enabling measurement of samples (cereals, foods, and chemical products) under various conditions (powder, particles, paste, and liquid).


  • Large Pan: A large sample pan (130mm diameter) enables a large amount of sample to be placed evenly in a thin layer. This results in accurate and fast measurements with minimal drying non-uniformities.
  • Long-life heater: A mid-wave infrared quartz heater provides effective drying without interference for a wide range of samples. In addition to the excellent drying performance, it offers a long operational life of 20,000 to 30,000 hours.
  • UniBloc sensor: The internal precision weighing balance is engineered with a Shimadzu UniBloc cell. The mechanism provides excellent stability and a long operational life against repeated temperature changes, enabling easy measurements down to 0.001g.
  • Moisture vaporization monitoring: The moisture vaporization rate is monitored and can be visually seen on a bar graph display. This is useful to know as the measurement nears completion. It updates every 30 seconds.

Ending modes

  • The automatic ending mode automatically ends measurement when moisture loss over the previous 30 seconds becomes smaller than specified percentage.
  • The timed ending mode automatically ends measurement when the specified amount of time has elapsed.

Three drying modes besides standard drying mode

  • The rapid drying mode first dries with the highest temperature for the specified period, then shifts to the specified temperature, thus shortening measurement time.
  • The slow drying mode mildly heats samples that may solidify in the surface or samples that reduce under high temperature.
  • The step drying mode allows changing drying conditions step by step. This feature is useful when measuring samples that contain a large amount of water (up to 5 steps).
  • The predictive measuring mode with preparatory measurements of the sample, the final result is predicted from the drying process. As a result, it saves a fair amount of time during repeated measurements.

Electronic Balances for Weighing Animals

Dedicated software, which brings quick and reliable results of live animal weighing, is built in to the UW/UX, BX-K, BW-K, and BX-K balances.

Upon removing the weighed animal, the weight of remaining feces and output are automatically tared off, and the balance presents zero for the next animal.

Order a standard balance plus one of the applicable animal bucket sets.

Specific Gravity Kits

You can use your balance as a simple specific gravity meters with a specific gravity measurement kit. Software for specific gravity measurement is pre-installed in the AUW-D/AUW/AUX/AUY, AW/AX/AY, UW/UX, and EL/ELB series balances.

Measure the specific gravity of solids, or measure liquid specific gravity sinker (except for EL/ELB Series).
