Compared to the traditional drying oven, faster determination of moisture content via LoD can be achieved using alternative methods. For example, an HMA is straightforward to operate and produces reliable results in just 5-15 minutes, compared to 2-4 hours when using a drying oven. In addition, the automation of weighing measurements and calculations allows for fully compliant and reliable results.
