NIR analyzers have become an indispensible tool for the monitoring of production process technology and quality control of food products.  The Lumex InfraLUM® FT- 12 NIR analyzer is used for rapid analysis of various agricultural and food products and beverages enabling simultaneous determination of main constituents/parameters with the highest accuracy possible. The analysis is very rapid (1.5minute) and non-destructive, and usually does not require any sample preparation at all. Used routinely, the instrument allows significant analysis costs reduction compared to common wet-chemical methods. Thanks to the use of FT spectroscopy, the InfraLUM® FT- 12 model features a very precise and reproducible analysis.

The main application areas are:

Grain and grain product analysis

  • rapid analysis of quality parameters of cereals (determination of protein, moisture, gluten content, and other parameters) of wheat, barley, corn, and grain products etc.;
  • monitoring of flour quality at various stages of the milling process;
  • determination of oil content, moisture and other quality parameters of interest in oilseeds;
  • processed products, quality control of compound feed production.

Grain elevators and grain receiving

NIR Analyzers InfraLUM® FT-12 and InfraLUM® FT-40 provide incoming grain quality control in each truck for grain storage and sorting in lots according to prescribed quality parameters. The determination of grain quality in each truck reduces the risk of inadequate grain placing in grain silo and makes grain quality adulteration less probable.

The use of NIR analyzers makes it possible to reduce the downtime of the grain delivery trucks in queue during harvest season.

Oilseed processing plants

InfraLUM® FT-12 provides the determination of oil content in a wide variety of oilseeds in each lot. The quality control of oil and of side products (oilseed meal) may be done with the same instrument.

Grain trading companies

The use of NIR analyzers equipped with unified corporate calibration software provides the uniformity needed for quality assurance testing at all company facilities.

Flour milling

Quality control of  incoming grain, monitoring of the stages of the milling process, and quality control of the final product specifications.

Dairy industry

In the dairy industry, the instrument is installed at milk processing plants for quality control of milk and milk products (cheese, curd, yoghurt, milk powder and others) for main quality parameters. Routine analysis is made simple with our analyzer – products are analyzed as they are, without any sample pre- treatment. The availability of rapid control allows optimization and strict control over the production process.

Other food products

Analysis of meat products, fish and seafood, vegetables and fruits, vegetable oils, wines and other products is made easy with our NIR analyzers.
