Sugar quality control: Sugar The sugar market is divided into sugar cane and sugar beet depending on where you are geo-graphically. FOSS has solutions and references in the beet market as well as the cane market. Read about FOSS instruments for analyzing Sugar: The sugar market is divided into sugar cane and sugar beet depending on where you are geo-graphically. FOSS has solutions and references in the beet market as well as the cane market. We offer NIR solutions for analysis of incoming material for payment and quality control analysis. We can also offer solutions for analysis during the process of juices and molasses as well as the end product. Our solutions comprise both laboratory and on-line instruments. Analysis for cane juice for payment purposes This application is probably the most common application for NIR in the Sugar industry. FOSS in-struments with a technology officially approved and accepted, are found at growers and millers in all the major South American countries as well as in Florida. A huge database of juice samples (approx 30,000 samples) makes the calibrations easier. Analysis of raw beet juice and beet brei for payment Our instruments have been in use for several years now and the applications work very well. Analysis of factory and refinery juices and syrups A great number of different types of liquid samples from first and second extraction juices in the factories and remelt syrups in the refineries to fermentation must and commercial liquid sugars are being analysed by FOSS NIRSystems world-wide. The most common analysis would be POL, in-verts, ashes and colour and one customer has reported that the FOSS NIR instruments have con-tributed to a 93% reduction in the number of analysis performed by their reference laboratory. Analysis of fibrated cane and bagasse A not so common, but very important application is the direct analysis of prepared sugar cane. On-line application The FOSS Cane Analysis on-line system was developed in partnership with BSES/SN in Australia and is used by several mills in that country. It can be used for analysing cane as it comes into the factory or for juice analysis during the process. It is designed for unattended operation and is a true online system providing results approximately every 20 seconds for payment and process control. The system can be used to audit existing central or juice lab practices. Results are also provided at the end of every mill delivered cane sample for payment purposes and provide individual rake or sample results that can be returned to growers to help manage cane quality and on-farm practices. A very large database of calibrations is available. The system can offer: - Rapid direct analysis of prepared sugar cane On-lineq - Multiple parameter results produced every 20 seconds for process control - Results available for DCS and PCS via multiple communications option - Extensive data management capabilities - Remote communications ability allows remote system management and diagnostics via modem or Internet connection It is: - Specifically designed for use in dirty, hot and humid environments - Easy to install and requires minimal maintenance - Requires no chemicals or reagents Off the shelf calibrations are available for - Fibre, Dry Matter, Pol in juice, Pol in Cane, BRIX in juice, BRIX in cane, Direct CCS, Extraneous matter, Trash, Tops, POL in open cells, Total Ash and Moisture as well as very huge databases with thousands of samples built up during many years.
