How NIR creates value in feed production
Learn more at the FOSS stand D34, Hall 15 at Eurotier, 11th -14th November
FOSS will help visitors to the Eurotier trade show to learn more about the value to be gained through the use of NIR analysis at the production line or directly in-line in the process flow.
Tighter control with in-line NIR
There will be an in-line process analysis simulation showing how the ProFoss™ for feed in-line process control solution can improve product quality with continuous NIR measurements made directly in the process stream. Giving a constant flow of analytical results for key control parameters such as moisture, protein and fat, it allows tighter control of the process according to production targets.
The ProFoss is designed for installation at the right location in the process where the analysis data is required. These locations are often subject to humidity, dust and vibration, but the robust, diode-array near infrared technology combined with flexible, dust and vibration-proof mounting options allows it to be placed exactly where it is needed.
Powerful and easy-to-use bench-top NIR
Feed producers can also make good use of benchtop NIR instruments such as the NIRS™ DS2500. It offers unprecedented NIR accuracy for testing a broad range of raw materials and finished compound feed, from checking protein content to determining the amount of digestible amino acids for an improved feed conversion ratio.
The NIRS™ DA1650 analyser is ideal for everyday routine control at raw material reception room or placed at the production plant. It features touch screen operation and straightforward sample-handling, offering a broad flexibility to analyze inhomogeneous samples such as wet forage, animal byproducts or feed pellets as well as liquid samples such as oil/fat samples .
Rapid return on investment
A particular strength of FOSS solutions is the availability of readymade calibrations that are regularly updated to reflect the fluctuating nature of feed ingredients, see a related news item here. A case story on how a user of the NIRS DS2500 has taken advantage of these calibrations to avoid months of complicated calibration development work will be available at the FOSS Eurotier stand.
