Milk component analysis
Measurement of fat, protein, lactose and solids.
The component analysis models are designed to measure and calculate milk and dairy components, including: fat A&B, protein, lactose, total solids (TS), solids-non-fat (SNF), urea, milk urea nitrogen (MUN), free fatty acids (FFA), freezing point depression (FPD), added water, pH and a host of other parameters. The technology for analysis utilizes the molecular-bond energy absorptionfound in the mid-infrared spectrum. Two different models are available for component analysis plus a combi system combining Component analysis with Somatic cell counter.
A state-of-the-art system that utilizes a full Fourier transform of energies from 950 cm-1 to 4000 cm-1. Capable of real-time analysis of up to 600 samples per hour, this instrument is ideal for central laboratories.
The Bentley FTS uses the Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTIR) to measure the milk composition, including fat, protein and lactose. After first being stirred, the milk is drawn from a sample vial and delivered to the measurement module. The sampling, sequencing and identification of the sample vials are functions performed by the Autosampler.
The Bentley FTS exceeds the IDF 141C:2000 and ICAR requirements for component measurement employing AOAC approved methodology.
The web-enabled diagnostic features of the Bentley FTS model allow Bentley Instruments to access your machine from any location. This enables your laboratory personnel and Bentley Instruments to collaborate and analyze all system functionality, no matter where the instrument is located.
The DairySpec FT is designed for a wide range of dairy laboratories and processing facilities that need a highly accurate instrument for the analysis of dairy components, including Fat, Protein and Lactose. DairySpec FT provides precise and accurate measurements, as well as exceptional reliability.
Bentley Instruments’ DairySpec FT component analyzer uses an industrial Fourier Transform Spectrometer (or FTIR) that captures the complete infrared absorption spectrum of the milk sample for component analysis. Collecting the complete spectrum allows the calibration to be based on all spectral characteristics of each particular component.
DairySpec FT exceeds the IDF 141C:2000 Standard and ICAR requirements for Milk Component Measurement and uses AOAC approved methodology.
The web-enabled diagnostic features of the DairySpec FT model allow Bentley Instruments to access your machine from any location. This enables your laboratory personnel and Bentley Instruments to collaborate and analyze all system functionality, no matter where the instrument is located.
Both manual and automated with autosampler versions are available.
