The AW measurement head was developed for use in combination with the HygroLab C1 and the HP23-A-AW handheld analyser. This digital probe enables quick and easy measurement of water activity. It can be calibrated via the HygroLabC1, HP23-A-AW or via the HW4 PC software.

The sample holder size is reduced to a minimum, thereby making it possible for humidity equilibrium to be reached quickly for all products being tested, while the metal housing ensures high temperature stability. All critical surfaces are made of chrome steel for minimal soiling.
