Foss announces the new Infratec 1241 Grain and Flour analyser, an updated near infrared (NIR) analysis solution providing new levels of analysis functionality for businesses at the front of grain and flour analysis while also extending the advantages near infrared analysis to any type of operation.
For evolving demands
New measurement features offered by Infratec help to improve analysis efficiency, as receiving sites are increasingly required to handle a higher intake from larger catchment areas. Faster analysis means throughput can be increased by 25 % and an improved user interface make it even simpler to perform valid NIR analysis for various sample types. Other improvements include a broader wavelength for analysis of colour in grain and flour, allowing carotene levels in durum wheat to be determined for that all-important yellowness required by increasingly discerning customers.
For any type of operation
A range of specific calibration and parameter options are now available as an alternative to the standard Infratec package – opening up a new flexible way to access powerful Infratec NIR analysis. For example, a small flour mill might choose to start with wheat flour analysis. More products such as whole wheat can be added later as the quality and process efficiency advantages of NIR analysis are realised in the form of improved profit. The options also suit users with greater analysis demands such as research laboratories working on breeding programs that can now choose a more flexible NIR analysis system solution to suit their specific needs.
