Monitoring the quality of raw material (wheat, durum, rye, etc.) prior to the milling process is critical in order to produce the correct type of flour according to customer requirements.
Real-time information about key parameters such as moisture and protein allows to decide upon unloading or rejection of the incoming goods, their segregation as well as to optimize the mixing step for highest final quality and profit. Additionally, the external appearance of grains can be measured using a high resolution CCD Camera providing more transparency of the entire delivery.
With the installation of a BUCHI NIR-Online® process analyzer at the raw material intake, grain composition and quality are monitored and documented in a fast, simple and reliable way.
