SpectraAlyzer Flour

SpectraAlyzer FLOUR

The SpectraAlyzer FLOUR is the ideal solution for routine analysis of major quality parameters during flour and starch production.

In modern milling operations, reliable and accurate analysis solutions are necessary to provide customers with flour and starch products of highest and – what is most important – consistent quality. In order to be most competitive in the world market, consistent high yields, top blend quality and low production costs are the objectives that need to be achieved. Designed as a modular system, the SpectraAlyzer® FLOUR solution presents the quantitative analytical results of major quality parameters (e.g. moisture, protein, gluten, starch, ash, colour) and many others within 45 seconds. There is no need to manually condition the sample and extra reagents do not have to be used so this analyzer solution provides highly accurate quality control parameters at no extra cost. As a stand alone system the SpectraAlyzer® FLOUR can be operated very easily and intuitively – even close to the production line. The rugged construction and unique optical sample/reference setup ensures reliable operation in environments with fluctuating temperatures, vibration and dust.

The SpectraAlyzer® FLOUR analyzer comes with many ready to use calibrations and a powerful software package to facilitate calibration fine tuning and extensive and automated logging as well as database storage of the analytical results on the analyzer, within the mills’ intranet and/or the internet.

  • NIR Sample/Reference technology like all SpectraAlyzer instruments for high sensitive and long term stable measurements.
  • Sample presentation with top loading glass petri dish.
  • User friendly sample presentation and easy to operate.
  • Compact design optimized for bench top or at-line application.
  • User interface with TFT and intrinsically mounted  glass touch for straight forward hygenic instrument and autosampler operation.
  • Many calibrations for flour and starch products included for quick installation.
