InfraLUM FT-12 WholeGrain

InfraLUM FT-12 WholeGrain

Rapid analysis of grain quality parameters (determination of protein, moisture, gluten content, vitreousness and other parameters of wheat). Determination of oil content, protein, starch, fiber and other quality parameters of interest in cereal grains, corn, soybeans. Analysis results are obtained within 1.5 minutes, no reagents required. Thanks to the use of FT spectroscopy, the InfraLUM FT-12 WholeGrain model features a very precise and reproducible analysis.

Rapid analysis of grain quality parameters (determination of protein, moisture, gluten content, vitreousness and other parameters of wheat). Determination of oil content, protein and other quality parameters of interest in cereals and grain legumes. Analysis results are obtained within 1.5 minutes, no reagents required.

Used for process inspection of whole grains at DIFFERENT stages in the agricultural chain, from crop management, grain trading TO grain storage AND processing

Grain elevators and grain receivals

NIR Analyzers InfraLUM FT-12 WholeGrain provides incoming grain quality control in each truck for grain storage and sorting in lots according to prescribed quality parameters. The determination of the 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 campaign.

Grain trading companies

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

Flour milling

InfraLUM FT-12 WholeGrain provides incoming grain quality control.

Advantages
  • Simultaneous determination of all the parameters of interest within 1.5 minutes.
  • Highest accuracy of the measurements.
  • Rapid whole grain analysis with no sample preparation – no milling or grinding.
  • No reagents or consumables required.
  • Easy to operate.
  • FT-NIR spectroscopy.
  • State-of-the-art user friendly software.
  • Automatical System Suitability Test.
  • Open calibration models (the possibility of extending existing calibrations: expand their range and accuracy).
  • Capability of regional (corporate) networking with unified calibrations.
  • Capability of extending the range of sample types and parameters of interest.
  • Full service at your territory.
Operation

The analyzer is operated by the licensed software package “SpectraLum/PRO” (Certificate 990592). This multilingual software provides the analysis of samples automatically saving all the results, and also allows customized calibration models to be developed and added.

Main application examples

LUMEX offers developed calibrations for a number of all the agricultural/food product samples and parameters/constituents: wheat, corn, barley, soybean, rye, oats etc.

Wheat grains

Protein, moisture, gluten, glassiness, fiber

Corn

Protein, moisture, oil, fiber, starch

Barley

Protein, moisture, fiber

Soybeans

Protein, moisture, oil, fiber

Rye (grains)

Protein, moisture, starch, fiber, ash

Oats

NIR analyzer InfraLUM FT-12 WholeGrain is intended specifically to cope with routine tasks.

Specific features
  • Automatic filling the sample into cell provides high-precision result of analysis.
  • Automatic adjustment of the cell optical path length according to the analyzed product. No need to choose the cell before analysis.
  • Automatic monitoring of grain and ambient temperature.

Operation with the instrument is very simple

1. Fill the sample cell, choose the analyzed
product in the menu and start the measurement.

2. Result obtained in 1.5 minutes.
