Unity offers a variety of solution for the analysis of oils, fats, proteins and moisture that include NIR and FT-NIR instrumentation. Unity is proud to be a supplier of the New Bomem 3600 oil and fat analyzer that is the perfect system for this analysis. It offers a temperature controlled sample vessel and a detector that sports a lifetime guarantee.
Unity can provide a NIR solution for improving the analytical testing methods at your manufacturing plant. NIR is a fast, safe, and reliable technology that will analyze at all critical points throughout the plant. NIR is a secondary technique and is calibrated by analyzing a set of known samples. The SpectraStar or Bomem 3600 can be used to analyze incoming raw materials, in-process sample to control production, and the finished product. Analysis time is approximately 30 seconds per sample. This speed can provide real time results that can be used to directly impact the process. During the manufacturing process other applications that can be used are image and wet chemisty analysis.
Unity NIR analysis provides a safe, effective fat analysis alternative to the Soxhlet extraction method. Unlike NIR Spectroscopy, this complex Soxhlet method usually takes several hours and requires the use of hazardous chemicals. Sugar can be analyzed using HPLC. Free fatty acids and iodine value are analyzed by titrations. These methods are time consuming and require chemicals.
