The oilseed processing industry spans a wide variety of crops and an equally diverse range of edible oil and oilseed meal by-products. All aspects of the business share a common goal – to extract as much oil and meal for least cost with the highest quality.
Knowledge is a key step in achieving this goal. For instance, understanding the quality of raw material such as soybean, sunflower seed and rapeseed, is essential for efficient oilseed processing. Another example is how insight into oil depletion after pressing helps to handle the press cake for optimal yield and economy. And in the production of oilseed meal, monitoring protein, moisture and fat improves yield while limiting any variation in final product quality that can lead to customer claims.
Whatever the example, well-proven near infrared (NIR) analytical solutions offer you a convenient way to get the insight you need. Rapid and reliable analysis of key parameters such as oil content, moisture, protein, fiber and fatty acids and more helps you to boost yield while controlling quality.
