Atline/ Online/ Inline solutions for quality and process control in foodstuff industries

Carl Zeiss offers for the whole agriculture and food business value chain UV/ VIS- and NIR systems which are optimized for the demands of the special applications in the foodstuff industry.

Quality monitoring during the production

The CORONA PLUS is optimal for the measurement of the ingredients and color of bulk materials in pipes or chain conveyors. The compact, light and robust spectrometer can be installed in each production line very easily. The optical design enables very short measurement times and provides constant monitoring of the process and provides real time results to the control system so that adjustments to the process can be made immediately.

The MCS 600 spectrometer with the distance measurement probe ARMOR is designed for the contact-free in-line measurement of ingredients of different products on a belt conveyor or in a cutter. A special feature of the ARMOR is the automatic reference system which permits precise measurements even if there are large distances between the measuring probe and the sample. This allows measurements to be performed in areas where an even mound height of the sample material cannot ensure. A really good application for this is the meat industry. To achieve a 100% traceability, measurements and analytical methods are needed which guarantee uninterrupted product analysis in the manufacturing process. The results obtain must be immediately available as the control parameters for process optimization.

CORONA PLUS with TURNSTEP for sub-sample testing

This combination permits large quantities of samples to be measured in the laboratory within seconds. This means that quality-critical parameters of the constituents used for beverages and other foodstuffs can be measured with higher accuracy. Other advantage is that for the process control and the sub-sample testing the same device can be used. This possibility enables even comparable results and it can be used the same calibration in the laboratory as well as in the process control.
