Providing unique levels of accuracy in measurement of ash, a key indicator of yield, FOSS NIRS DS2500 flour analysers also offer a high level of accuracy when measuring parameters such as moisture protein and colour.
These capabilities help millers tune production for optimal results from production. For instance, getting just 0.1% closer to target on ash content can give an ROI of under a year. The new flour analysers achieve this accuracy by capturing all the latest developments in quality control with NIR.
Different parameters are measured using a broad wavelength range of 400 to 2500nm. A high signal-to-noise ratio gives ultimate measure of ash and other low level parameters in need of high accuracy. Sub-sampling measures six different points per sample giving a wealth of data per sample for a tighter prediction range.
FOSS NIRS DS2500 flour analysers offer user-friendly operation with users simply required to place a sample in the sample cup, push the button and wait a minute for results to appear on the screen via the intuitive ISIscan Nova software.
All instruments are pre-calibrated with global artificial neural network (ANN) calibrations based on a comprehensive FOSS database built up over decades of collaboration with the milling industry. Calibration data from earlier solutions can be transferred to the new platform using straightforward migration paths without any loss of performance.
Consistency between existing and new instruments can be maintained as every instrument leaving the factory is hardware standardised. Built-in measurement standards help to control instrument performance, ensuring that no deviations occur over time. Likewise, multiple instruments can use the same calibrations without any modifications.
