What is the right infrared for testing dairy powder?
Learn more at the FOSS stand at the Dairy Asia Pacific summit, November 20th – 21st
Visitors to the FOSS stand at the Dairy Asia Pacific summit this week will be able to see a FOSS NIRS™ DS2500 analyser in action and learn about why it offers unprecedented Near Infrared (NIR) accuracy for testing dairy powder.
The instrument measures with near infrared reflectance from below the sample to ensure an accurate measurement, as explained in this video article in the FOSS In Focus magazine.
Careful monitoring of moisture content in powder as it goes into drying helps to ensure consistent quality and avoids rework. In addition, getting moisture content closer to targets can reduce energy usage with typical savings in the region of Euro 24,000 for a 10,000 ton/year production.
Designed for use in the laboratory or at the production line, the NIRS™ DS2500 is a practical quality control tool ideal for routine production control and monitoring of final product quality.
Screening liquid milk with FTIR
For visitors interested in testing liquid milk, FOSS representatives will be able to provide information about Fourier Transform Infrared technology in the form of analysers such as the MilkoScan™ FT1, including new options to screen incoming raw milk for abnormalities.
Ready-to-use screening models for the MilkoScan™ FT1 analyser now make it quicker and simpler for dairy producers to screen milk for accidental or deliberate adulteration of the milk supply. The models are available as ‘targeted’ models that check for the presence of specific adulterants and ‘untargeted’ models that check for any deviation from normal raw milk samples.
With the ability to spot samples which in one way or another deviate from normality, dairy producers will be in a better position to tackle adulteration that can be extremely harmful and costly in terms of food safety or wasted production.
