SpectraAlyzer Dairy

SpectraAlyzer DAIRY

The SpectraAlyzer DAIRY is the ideal solution for routine analysis of major quality parameters during the production of dairy products.

In modern dairy processing operations, reliable and accurate analysis solutions are necessary to provide customers with products of highest and – what is most important – consistent quality. In order to be most competitive in the world market, consistent high yields, top quality and low production costs are the objectives that need to be achieved. Designed as a modular system, the SpectraAlyzer® DAIRY solution presents the quantitative analytical results of major quality parameters (e.g. moisture, protein, fat, sugars, starch, acidity, salt, ash) and many others within 45 seconds. There is no need to manually condition the sample and extra reagents do not have to be used so this analyzer solution provides highly accurate quality control parameters at no extra cost. As a stand alone system the SpectraAlyzer® DAIRY can be operated very easily and intuitively – even close to the production line. The rugged construction and unique optical sample/reference setup ensures reliable operation in environments with fluctuating temperatures, vibrations and dust.

The SpectraAlyzer® DAIRY analyzer comes with many ready to use calibrations and a powerful software package to facilitate calibration fine tuning and extensive and automated logging as well as database storage of the analytical results on the analyzer, within the company intranet and/or the internet.

  • NIR Sample/Reference technology like all SpectraAlyzer instruments for high sensitive and long term stable measurements.
  • Automated sample presentation for liquid milk, syringe, peristaltic pump, autosampler.
  • User friendly sample presentation and easy to operate.
  • Compact design optimized for bench top or at-line application.
  • User interface with TFT and intrinsically mounted glass touch for straight forward hygenic instrument and autosampler operation.

SpectraAlyzer analytical solutions for Milk powder analysis

 

Problem
Optimization of processing tolerances during the production of skim milk powder

Objective
Maximize profit by increasing water content in milk powder, decreasing labour costs and improving product quality

 

Situation

Production Plant

250 d/a

Production Plant

20 h/d

Milk Powder production

2000 kg/h

Total Production

10000 t/a

 

Product specifications:

Water content

3,7 %

Permitted Water content

4,0 %

Safety difference

0,3 %

 

Solution

The monitoring of the water content in skim milk powder with NIR technology allows the continuous production of skim milk powder with a water content of for example 3,9 % instead of 3,7 %.

Result

Savings in production costs per year: raw material and wages

Production cost reduction per year:

  • 20 t skim milk powder will be saved per year

Skim milk powder savings / year – € 40.000

  • Less routine production analysis is necessary
  • Cost for reduced labour to be quantified
