Quality control of oilseeds and pressed oil
For the manufacturers of edible oils it is very important to control the crushing process at all the stages to achieve the best cost efficiency. In order to provide maximum yield and meet the product specifications it is necessary to monitor process as closely and rapidly as possible.
Rapid determination of the key parameters with the use of InfraLUM NIR analyzers provides the opportunity to control the process at every stage from quality control of oilseeds at intake point to the QC of the final product (liquid or solid).
The method is based on measuring the transmission spectrum of a sample in the near-IR spectral region and subsequent determination of the analyzed parameters/constituents using a calibration model.
Transmission measurement with an FTNIR spectrometer provides highest accuracy and reproducibility of the measurements.
