    Dynamic diamond probe

    The FOSS patented in-line Dynamic Diamond Probe™, DDP™, performs dynamic reference samples after CIP, eliminating the need for zero setting.

    The dynamic reference standardisation performed by the MilkoStream™ effectively allows FTIR analysis on milk directly in the process pipe.
