Near-Infrared (NIR)

NIR Flour Analyzer PerkinElmer - Inframatic 9520

The Inframatic 9520 is the new dedicated NIR instrument for flour and semolina. In less than 30 seconds it provides accurate results for ash, moisture, protein and other key components.

The Inframatic 9520 produces quality data to monitor and optimize the milling degree. With rapid results, process improvements can be carried out in real-time. Flour quality is essential to all baking products. Delivering a product according to specifications is of great importance. With the Inframatic 9520, the flour can be delivered and checked with a high level of confidence without time-consuming chemical methods.

Flour quality is crucial for baking products and meeting specifications for these is of the upmost importance. The IM9520 can test for ash, moisture, protein and other key components, providing results in less than 30 seconds.  

Features and Benefits

  • Reliability - The robust construction of Inframatic 9520 with sealed module construction of standardized components guarantees long term reliability.
  • Ready-to-use calibrations - The Inframatic 9520 is delivered with ready-to-use global calibrations. They include a wide variety of flour types. The Inframatic 95 series share the same calibration database and data has been collected over many years.
  • Remote instrument management - The Inframatic 9520 can easily be managed remotely by using the PerkinElmer cloud solution NetPlus. It is possible to access the instrument from anywhere just by logging in to the website. This means production managers can verify that the milling process is within targets and limits. Quality managers can follow up on deliveries to verify compliance with specifications.
  • Ease of use - The large color touch screen with its intuitive menus makes it easy both to operate the instrument and read analysis results. We have designed the user interface to make analysis as rapid and secure as possible. With the Perten designed loading station, the cuvette is easily packed before analysis and it makes the procedure operator independent.
