Pelletized biomass testing made easy

Pelletized biomass is all the rage these days. These little pellets seem to offer the promise of a consistent, renewable energy source that is easy to store, transport and use.
Two of the most important properties of pellet fuels are the moisture content, and inorganic ash content. The Pellet Fuel Institute (PFI) standards require that for even the lowest commercial grade of pellets, the moisture content cannot exceed 10% and the inorganic ash content cannot exceed 6%. This means that great care must be taken when choosing and drying feedstocks for pellitization. Testing for moisture and ash can be a time consuming process. The ASTM standard test methods can take upwards of 4 hours and require an oven, a furnace, and a mass balance to run. The Computrac MAX 5000XL can generate equivalent data in about 30 minutes. With one sample and a minimal amount of fuss you gen get moisture and ash results in less than an hour.  Contact us to find out how your process can benefit.

Perfect Fit for Lyophilized Moisture Analysis

COMPUTRAC® VAPOR PRO® RX - Moisture Specific Analyzer
Relative Humidity Sensor Technology, a GREEN Karl Fischer Alternative

Testing for moisture in lyophilized materials has well documented benefits to ensuring quality and shelf life. It has been previously demonstrated that the Computrac® Vapor Pro® Rx is a perfect fit for testing for moisture in lyophilized samples. The samples can be tested in the lyophilization vials without ever being exposed to ambient air. The relative humidity sensor in the instrument is sensitive enough to allow for sample sizes as small as 5 mg.

Best Moisture Analyzer in the Business!

Computrac® MAX® 4000XL Highlights
A few unique features to the Computrac® MAX® 4000XL
•  MAX® 4000XL has a fan that comes on after the test is over to help cool the heating element
down quicker. This produces a 25% quicker throughput of product.
•  MAX® 4000XL is capable of allowing a customer to control the ramp rate. This comes in handy if
a customer would like to know exactly when some of the other components in their product
evaporate at temperature heating.

•  MAX® 4000XL has the ability for Ethernet hook up for remote access through the internet. The
software program is a little different and allows you to develop parameters for product.
• MAX® 4000XL allows the user to write the final test result formula. The Equation Editor
calculates and displays results related to the parameters used to calculate moisture %.

•  MAX® 4000XL stores 1000 of the last tests with 100 of the last graphs.

•  MAX® 4000XL has an optional Bar Code Reader. If you are interested in identifying your sample
using a Bar Code System, this optional feature is available.

•  MAX® 4000XL has a Parameter Expert and Parameter Optimizer program that allows in house
method development.
