“It gave us so much more control over the process”

In this video Lake Country Dairy explains how they achieved optimal control of moisture levels in their Mascarpone Cheese production with the ProFoss™ in-line cheese analyser.

Features

  • ProFoss Dairy - Dairy powder ProFoss Dairy - Dairy powder

    High Resolution near infrared technology

    High resolution diode array technology ensures accurate and continuous analysis, giving you a clearer picture of your process. A high number of pixels (diode sensors) in the spectrum secures a more detailed (accurate) and uniform (repeatable) analysis result.

    ProFoss™ probes

    Dairy powder probe for in-line analysis of fine powder like dairy powders etc. The powder probe interface can easily be installed into a hopper or pipe with free falling product. The probe has no moving parts. The probe is automatically cleaned with compressed air before each analysis.

    Lateral transmission probe for in-line analysis of slurries and viscous products such as WPC, Cream Cheese, Mozarella etc.The Lateral transmittance probe can easily be installed in the production line using a standard GEA Tuchenhagen flow¬cell for installation in a pipe.
