Food & Beverage Production

Food & Beverage Production

The development of digitalization in the food and beverage industry has a huge effect on how factories produces food and beverages.  It is rapidly changing the industry with businesses adopting new technologies such as smart sensors in the entire production process to improve their operation, reduce operating cost and, increase yield and competitiveness.

Featured Applications

Cookie Production

Cookie Production

The quantitative online analysis of the raw materials for cookie production is important as it can determine the specification and quality of all raw materials such as the ingredients.  Such process control throughout the manufacturing process will help to increase production output with less downtime and damaged product.

With our high speed Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy system, it can provide 670 measurements per seconds with the factory process control integration and also comply to international food laws and regulations. 

 

Forage Analysis

Forage Harvester

Analysis of forage is essential for animal nutrition optimization, crop pricing, and overall farm productivity.  

Our Near-Infrared (NIR) technology now brings easy, real-time analysis to the field.  It has the advantages over the traditional wet chemistry method for forage profiling. Essential factors for forage include:

  • Moisture and dry matter
  • Crude Protein
  • Starch
  • Sugars
  • Fiber

Fermentation of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae

Yeast

Process in-line monitoring of aerobic fermentation of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae.

Our Raman optical spectroscopy allows rapid, non-invasive and simultaneous determination of a number of analytes.

  • Monitoring of substrate breakdown (glucose) and product formation (ethanol)
  • In-line monitoring of glucose and ethanol during yeast fermentation
  • Simple evaluation by univariate calibration models
  • Independent external validation by means of HPLC analysis.

In-Situ Measurements of Maize

In-situ measurements of maize

Determination of Biomass to monitor the selected parameters during the whole stadium of growth. 

  • Biomass, 
  • Protein, 
  • N-nutritional status, etc.

Using our Near-Infrared (NIR) technology, these measurements can now be performed directly in the field

The portable spectrometer system is perfectly suited for mobile and precise data acquisition in the laboratory, a green house and on the fields with automatic data collection.
