5.1 Operate the instrument as per SOP.
5.2 Set the temperature by ‘voltage regulator knob’.
5.3 After fifteen minute, observe the temperature and record it in annexure.
5.4 Select any raw material like starch or any inprocess granules sample. Carry out LOD at 105oC. Calculate and record % LOD in annexure-I
5.5 For same sample perform its LOD in the infrared moisture balance at the same temperature and record the result in annexure.
5.6 The performance of the instrument is satisfactory if the observed % L.O.D. difference between the oven and I.R.balance is within the tolerance limit of 10 % of the % LOD observed in oven, otherwise follow the S.O.P.
6.1 % = Percentage
6.2 LOD = Loss on drying
6.3 I.R. = Infra red
