    ANN - A global industry needs global calibrations

    The huge Infratec™ database comprises over 50.000 cross checked samples, PLS and robust ANN-based calibrations building on a wide sample range from many years of harvests. This gives a level of accuracy and stability that enables Infratec™ to test even the most unusual samples anywhere in the world.
  • FossConnect FossConnect


    FossConnect™ is a centralised networking management solution for Infratec™ that helps you reduce your production costs and secure the quality of your products. With FossConnect™, you can manage, configure and monitor your instruments remotely from any internet-enabled computer and safeguard your data for whenever you need it.
  • Harvest Harvest

    Established standard worldwide

    Infratec™ is officially approved and established worldwide as the standard for determining Protein, Moisture, Oil and Starch. Its accurate and reliable results help you to deliver consistent quality.

    With Infratec’s patented stabilising technique, you get correct results whatever the weather. For instance, Protein is predictable to within 0,1% and it can be measured in temperatures ranging from -4°C to +40 °C.

    Expand capabilities with additional modules

    The Infratec™ 1241 is part of a modular system that includes a Flour module, a Test Weight module and a Sample Transport module to test small samples, wet samples and liquids.

Since the Infratec™ was introduced in 1987 it quickly became the benchmark for grain analysis trusted to facilitate billions of dollars worth of fair grain trade every year.
