Fast and reliable yield monitoring in process and laboratory
From production line to the QC laboratory, BUCHI solutions allow oil seed mills and refineries to control the crtitical steps in their production process – from the pressing of the seeds to wet extraction and refining. The more oil extracted from seeds, the higher is the profit.
Our in-line sensors enable the operators to directly assess if the process is running under optimum conditions, i.e. whether the maximum amount of oil is exploited from the press cake. It is possible to directly monitor key parameters such as e.g. moisture, residual oil content or phosphorous and free fatty acids in the control room. In case of process deviations immediate corrective actions may be taken.
Using our benchtop at-line and laboratory NIR spectrometers technicians are capable of measuring key parameters as well as additional information within seconds. Moreover, our NIR solutions give rise to in-line monitoring of the same parameters.
Our benchmark solutions perform reference methods like i.e. total fat determination via Soxhlet. They confirm anomalies detected by the process sensor or the benchtop spectrometers and provide suitable calibration data.
