Many dairy plants are moving their analytics to continuous inline technology for process measurements and control, where automation is desired. Over the years, this technology has required frequent calibration adjustments and high maintenance costs for continued uptime. Today, the Bruker Matrix-F FT-NIR can be setup to measure six points with 3-A probes in the process to measure fat, protein, casein, TS in both liquid and solid dairy products, such as standardized milk, condensed milk, UF whey, powders, cheese, butter, etc.

The technology is solid-state, with low maintenance requirements, very accurate measurements and no calibration drift which help maximize yield, improve quality and profitability.

Learning objectives:

  1. Measurement techniques for various dairy applications with inline FT-NIR
  2. Advantages for inline measurements to improve quality & yield
  3. Low cost of ownership for process systems using inline FT-NIR technology
  4. Accurate and real-time results for managing consistent products throughout the production run
