Crude fibre analysis: Flour
Like every other industry, milling is subject to increased market pressures. Customers demand consistent quality and product variety while production efficiency must be maintained if not im-proved. A FOSS solution can prove an important ally in walking such a tightrope.

Quality and efficiency all the way from grain to flour
Using Infratec? 1241 Whole Grain Analyzer millers can analyse whole grain or flour with a single instrument - realising efficiency improvements throughout production. One instrument covering both flour and grain minimizes the number of analysis instruments. It makes it simple to implement and run an analysis solution. And the need for just a few robust and highly versatile calibrations saves time and money too.
Since its launch in 1987, Infratec has become widely used for grain analysis. Today it is the most widely used system in the world for securing the quality of grain during commercial transactions. In the milling industry it is used at the grain intake for payment analysis or verification of quality and secondly, for controlling the tempering process in pursuit of an increased flour yield.
Using a simple flour module, millers can analyse flour as well as grain with the existing Infratec unit. The Flour Module delivers highly accurate measurements of parameters such as moisture, protein and ash in flour. Additional parameters such as water absorption and wet gluten are avail-able.
Based on the latest FOSS Infratec platform, the flour module brings the simplicity and usability benefits of modern monochromator technology to the routine user in the flourmill. All information in the NIR spectra is used to create a stable calibration that can be transferred to other instruments without loss of performance. There is no longer any need for monthly/weekly bias adjustments of the NIR instruments to get the performance you demand.
The use of artificial neural network (ANN) calibrations gives the possibility to make multipurpose calibrations covering different types of flour products in the same calibration.
