PROCESS EQUIPMENT UPDATE


Innovative solution for measuring food products


T


he new Zeiss on-line NIR sensor Corona Process is based on diode-array technology and predicts parameters such as moisture, fat and protein. These parameters, combined with colour measurement, prevent over- or under-cooking and optimise oil uptake and fryer operation. Fully engineered for continuous or static product fl ow technologies, it makes a continuous single or multi- component non-contacting measurement. Due to the built-in colour measurement function, further


benefi ts can be provided, such as the on-line measurement of degree of bake, browness or colour in bakery or fried products. These are important quality parameters of bakery and snack products. Measuring these parameters provides even deeper insight into the process and guarantees the highest quality standards. Further applications of the Corona Process include


coffee and tea processing, corn wet milling, dairy powders, fl our and grains, ingredients, seeds, nuts and spices, meat further processing, olive oil extraction, animal feeds, starch, fi shmeal, sugar processing and refi ning.


The product can be transported to the required point of measurement whether, on an open conveyor belt or in an enclosed duct. The product fl ow may be continuous or static. As ambient process conditions changes in temperature and relative humidity, the sensor compensates without affecting the measurement. In summary, this innovative new solution delivers moisture, fat and protein determination by NIR spectroscopy in addition to colour control. These factors combined make the Corona Process an attractive option for players involved in a variety of different applications throughout the food processing sector. In fact, its maker, Zeiss, is promoting the Corona Process as “the NIR spectrometer for the foodstuff industry.” ■
