  • (1888PressRelease) July 21, 2012 - Mettler-Toledo India, a wholly subsidiary of Mettler-Toledo Inc (NYSE: MTD), introduces it latest generation Excellence HX204 Moisture Analyzer in India targeting primarily pharmaceutical sector. In the pharmaceutical industry, strict standards must be followed during the manufacture of both medicines and drugs. METTLER TOLEDO's latest generation HX204 Moisture Analyzer provides high measurement performance and compliance with industry standards.

    The HX204 can be adjusted and calibrated at operating temperature, ensuring the instrument is performing optimally under specific working conditions. The built-in LevelControl warns the user if the instrument is not correctly leveled. Fully automatic calibration technology (FACT) eliminates the need for frequent manual testing with external weights. Internal weights adjust and calibrate the balance and ensure accurate results at all times. Individual user rights can be established to ensure compliance with quality guidelines. Personalized home screens provide only the information required to perform daily tasks. Password protection and access rights prevent errors and ensure SOPs are met. Shortcuts enable drying methods to be started with just one click for fast, error-free operation.

    Full process control is crucial for pharmaceutical manufacturers. Therefore real-time graphics show the drying curve for each measurement. Trends in moisture content over time are monitored by integrated control charts. Pass/fail decisions are simplified by establishing individual control limits for each product.

    An advanced halogen heating system provides precise temperature control. A high performance MonoBloc weighing cell with a capacity of 200 g and 0.1 mg resolution guarantees maximum weighing accuracy, even for very low moisture content. The hanging weighing pan concept distances the weighing cell from the heat of the sample chamber, eliminating the adverse influence of the heater on the weighing cell for more accurate results.

    Testing and documenting is crucial to ensure that moisture analyzers produce correct results. The new reference substance SmartCal and a risk-based testing recommendation present a simple and fast solution for testing and documenting instrument performance.

    "Industry is looking for the moisture analyzer to improve their productivity which can work perfectly in tough conditions with exceptional reproducibility and rapid heating of the sample. Customers require an instrument which will be simple to operate with real time graphics and passed / failed statement from product. Regulations ask for the use of analytical balance of resolution of 0.1mg and evidence that the temperature of use is tested. METTLER TOLEDO's HX204 Moisture Analyzer offers all with the high performance MonoBloc weighing cell, accurate and fast 2nd generation halogen heating. Real time charts for full control and state-of-the-art data management using USB flash drives offers excellent user interface" said Mr. Mahesh Sawant, Product Manager, Mettler-Toledo India.

    "SmartCal, world's first reference substance, allows a simple 10 Minutes test for the verification and documented performance evidence for Moisture Analyzer. LabX is very useful to tool design application as per customer's method and it executes with just one click on the interactive touch screen. After execution of a method, data transfer from the moisture analyzer and visualization of drying curve on PC for perfect overview makes customer's process convenient and easy."
