Get up to date with new grain handling solutions in South Africa
Infratec™ Nova and Alphatec™ FN<sup>o</sup> on show at IAOM MEA 2014
FOSS is taking two new grain testing solutions to the International Association of Operative Millers Mideast & Africa District IAOM event in Cape Town, South Africa on 3-6 December 2014 at the Cape Town International Convention Center, Expo Hall 4A.
The Infratec™ NOVA takes grain testing to new levels of speed and efficiency and the Alphatec™ FNo offers a safe and modern way to check sprouting damage in grain. To complete the update on grain testing, Grain Market Manager Darren Robey will present on the subject of digital imaging for grain quality assessment in the form of the EyeFoss™ analyser.
FOSS will be represented at booth #I12 by Wouter Oosthuizen and Philip van Der Merwe from Rhine Ruhr, the FOSS distributor in South Africa.
More about the new solutions
The Infratec™ NOVA is a 6th generation of the renowned Infratec NIR testing platform with new functionality to help grain receivers handle more grain samples in less time.
New levels of usability improve operations while dynamic sub-sampling makes the new instrument 20% faster than other NIR solutions when testing normal grain samples. At the same time, true networking and identical instruments reduce instrument management work required for consistent test results throughout grain receival networks. The new generation is reflected in a slight change of name from the well-known Infratec™ 1241 Grain Analyzer to the Infratec™ NOVA.
In addition to the Infratec Nova, grain receivers can take advantage of the Alphatec™FNo that provides a modern and safe way to perform the standard falling number test used to check sprouting damage in grain and enzyme-activity in flour before baking, malting etc.
Alphatec FNo offers a new alternative for testing the standard AACC Method AACC 56-81B ‘Determination of Falling Number’ with features including a specially designed cooling lid that minimises the rush of steam when loading samples and a touch screen interface for easy operation.
