The main objective of the care and maintenance of moisture analyzers, as drying processing equipment of the materials to be studied, are of great importance, since it would avoid the consequences of equipment failures, managing to prevent incidents before they occur.
The maintenance mechanisms can contain actions in the changes such as worn parts, cleaning routines to the Karl Fischer cell, etc. thus avoiding the progressive deterioration of all components.
Therefore, it is necessary to take into account the maintenance processes according to the recommendations of the equipment manufacturers, and the recommendations of experts of the actions carried out, on similar assets.
Maintenance for Moisture Analyzers
The care and maintenance is part of a series of actions to lengthen the use of equipment, and prevent the interruption of work activities due to unforeseen events. These actions have as its purpose, to plan phases of work stoppage at specific times, to inspect and perform maintenance actions, in order to timely prevent the wear that can occur in all components, and accessories of these instruments, due to being in contact with highly toxic and oxidizing substances.
In this way, in search of extending the lifespan of the equipment, in addition to improving the stability of the measurement, and avoiding gas leaks, it is recommended to put into practice the commitment of preventive care, since, when using medical equipment, a great responsibility is assumed, because according to the results they yield, diagnoses are made and the states of the samples are analyzed, that in case of being incorrect can directly affect the study.
Therefore, when it comes to moisture analyzer equipment, it is of vital importance that they are in perfect condition, because if the result that is sought with them, is the proportion of the weight by drying the samples, and the equipment is not well calibrated or worn, they will not meet the expectations of the operator; on the other hand, the advantages of carrying out the timely maintenance of moisture analyzers is necessary, since it is better to apply preventive services, than to wait for them to present operating problems and look for late solutions, since it would represent a loss of investment before the costs of total replacement of the equipment.
Advice for operating the Moisture Analyzer
It is important to maintain the necessary knowledge in the handling of moisture analyzers, since it involves the control of the samples to be studied and promotes safety to the operator.
In this way, it is recommended:
- Keep your distance, to avoid risks of burns due to excessive heating of the equipment.
- It is forbidden to bring flammable materials on, under or next to the equipment.
- Be vigilant when you want to remove the sample, as heating systems can maintain high temperatures and cause accidents.
- Keep the drying unit closed, when the equipment is working, since the heating element circulates or its protective glass can reach 400ºC. It is recommended to turn off the unit and disconnect the computer until it is expected to have cooled completely.
Therefore, the equipment must be kept in suitable areas, since its functions are highly risky for the operator.
Therefore, it is essential to understand the functions and performance of the instrument from a holistic perspective, since its mechanisms will depend on the use provided by the operator, so that finally the results of the studies meet the applied requirements.
