CEM Corporation, a leading supplier of process control solutions, has announced that it's new SMART 6™ Moisture/Solids Analyser (SMART 6) was named one of the top new products at Pittcon by Instrument Business Outlook. The SMART 6 features two major innovations compared to other moisture analysers: the ability to accurately analyse both wet and dry samples, and a significant reduction in sample drying times. These benefits are possible through the development of iPower® technology, which features a patented multi-frequency energy source for sample drying. The SMART 6 also features a high resolution touchscreen with software for complete statistical analysis and an inbuilt library of methods.

"The SMART 6 will revolutionise analysis time for high moisture applications like dairy, meat, coatings and chemicals by reducing test times by half. It will also expand CEM's moisture/solids analysis capabilities to include dairy powders, snack foods, non-polar chemical solvents, low moisture plastics, and pharmaceutical materials. These applications have been difficult for previous microwave drying systems, but are now possible with the development of iPower," commented Michael J. Collins, President and CEO of CEM Corporation. "Additionally, the drying time is much faster than IR drying systems, which have traditionally served these markets. Never before has a moisture analyser been able to offer so much, with the ability to have the fastest testing and most accurate data for any sample type."

Since the introduction of the SMART 6 in December, around 200 systems have been sold. Many of these systems are being placed in companies where critical at line changes can now be made faster than ever, saving companies time and costly reformulations. CEM estimates the moisture/solids market to be greater than US$100 million and are proud to bring an innovative solution to meet the needs of today's manufacturing demands.
