Quant highly accurate at-line Instrument for a range of dairy products

Quant Dairy Analyser

  • Highly accurate at-line Instrument for a range of dairy products
  • FT-NIR spectrometer ensuring highly stable results
  • Long term calibration stability
  • No reagents required 
  • Maintenance free

The Q-interline Quant at-line FT-NIR instrument can be used for analysis of a wide range of dairy products both at-line, in a production environment and also within the laboratory including;;

Analysis of butter achieving quick stability after churn start up and cream silo changes can be assisted by the moisture and salt measurements from the Quant instrument.

Accurate and consistent analysis of cheese curd for fat, moisture, protein and salt.

A wide range of dairy powders can be analysed using the Quant analyser including milk, whey, standardised powders and added value products both in process and finished product measurements. Multiple channels can be added to the Quant to ensure compliance to specific customer specifications and traceability.

Using a unique state-of-the-art FT-NIR spectrometer engine the system is configured with patented sample accessories to handle nearly all types of samples and materials. The system can also be connected to the automated intelligent analytics service AnalyticTrust. This monitors all aspects of an analysers performance, from hardware to calibration accuracy, and allows QA complete control of an analysers validation. Ideal for production optimisation and quality control, the Quant will ensure that you know what is really in your product.

The Quant instrument is highly suitable for process testing and not just for use in a laboratory, with sample prep time to results in just minutes. No reagents, no mess, just results. The accuracy and stability of the instrument calibrations give us reliable results, needing only relatively few reference cross checks to ensure ongoing validation of the results accuracy.
A driving choice for the Quant for me, was the ability of it to measure salt in cheese curd with accuracy and consistency. We accurately measure salt (to 2 d.p.), fat, moisture and protein, it’s good to hand over to process operators for real time, line side sample measurement of our curd production.”

The Petri Sampler is used for homogeneous samples with no segregation. ​The petri dish can be glass, plastic or Teflon and spins continuously during analysis to minimise the effect of heterogeneity. It can be used for processed, grated or cottage cheese and milk or WPC powder.

In the glass Bottle Sampler the sample is protected against moisture and contamination. The sampler rotates continuously during analysis, mixing the sample and providing solid representative scanning as all particles are included in the resulting spectrum. Ideal for segregating powders.
