In an age of uncertainty and volatile market conditions, running a profitable business can be a challenge. On top of these conditions, changing consumer trends, new government regulations and a common goal towards more sustainable food production, have increased the complexity of the dairy industry over the past decade. Under these circumstances, delivering peak performance in your milk analysis is crucial.
Thankfully, alongside the challenges associated with these factors, digital and technological developments have paved the way for new and better ways to secure accurate and reliable results for improved production efficiency, product quality and food safety. In other words, new technology can lead to improved product quality, reduced waste, and cost savings in your business.
Upgrading from an older MilkoScan™ model to MilkoScan™ FT3 can provide several benefits such as:
Faster Analysis: Faster analysis time means that more samples can be analyzed in less time, making it a more efficient tool for dairy production settings. MilkoScan™ FT3 has a sample throughput of 120 samples per hour. Thanks to a smart flow system, it can recognize and auto-adjust to each sample and deliver results in just 30 seconds depending on the sample type.
Increased Accuracy: Advanced technology and algorithms to provide more accurate and reliable results. This is especially important in the dairy industry where precise measurements are crucial for ensuring product quality and safety.
More Parameters: Additional parameters such as free fatty acids, citric acid, and urea in milk provide a more comprehensive analysis of milk quality, allowing for better product development and process control.
Always standardized: Automatic standardization at every Zero Setting means that you no longer have to worry about; standardizing your instrument at correct intervals, instrument drift due to uncorrected cuvette wear, or complicated calibration work. A notification is issued whenever the cuvette needs changing and even after cuvette change, the performance remains the same.
Robust flow system: MilkoScan™ FT3 is built to handle highly viscous or sticky products and products with particles, such as chocolate milks and plant-based products containing undissolved solids and fibers from nuts or oats. The flow system handles these types of products without the need for filtering, sample after sample and no blockages of the inline filter.
Less maintenance: In the MilkoScan™ FT3, the homogenizer has been replaced with an advanced dual piston syringe flow system. An intelligent diagnostic system monitors the flow system for automatic detection of blockages. At the same time, advanced cleaning cycles ensure that the flow system, cuvette and inline filter are always perfectly clean and ready for the next sample. This robust and washable design means that weekly replacement of disposable filters is no longer required.
Improved user interface: An intuitive touch-screen interface that is easy to use and navigate makes it easier for operators to perform routine tasks such as calibration and analysis, reducing the risk of errors and downtime.
Better data management: Advanced software for data management, analysis, and reporting allows for easy storage and retrieval of data, as well as the ability to generate custom reports for regulatory compliance and quality control.
