NIR analyzers have become an indispensible tool for the monitoring of production process technology and quality control of food products. The Lumex InfraLUM® FT- 12 NIR analyzer is used for rapid analysis of various agricultural and food products and beverages enabling simultaneous determination of main constituents/parameters with the highest accuracy possible. The analysis is very rapid (1.5minute) and non-destructive, and usually does not require any sample preparation at all. Used routinely, the instrument allows significant analysis costs reduction compared to common wet-chemical methods. Thanks to the use of FT spectroscopy, the InfraLUM® FT- 12 model features a very precise and reproducible analysis.
The main application areas are:
GRAIN AND GRAIN PRODUCT ANALYSIS
rapid analysis of quality parameters of cereals (determination of protein, moisture, gluten content, and other parameters) of wheat, barley, corn, and grain products etc.;
monitoring of flour quality at various stages of the milling process;
determination of oil content, moisture and other quality parameters of interest in oilseeds;
processed products, quality control of compound feed production.
In the dairy industry, the instrument is installed at milk processing plants for quality control of milk and milk products (cheese, curd, yoghurt, milk powder and others) for main quality parameters. Routine analysis is made simple with our analyzer – products are analyzed as they are, without any sample pre- treatment. The availability of rapid control allows optimization and strict control over the production process.
