Improve quality and increase profits with rapid at-line testing

Easy-to-use analyser for rapid at-line analysis of moisture and oil content. Versatile sampling options for the analysis of powders, solids and pastes.

Ensure consistent quality from your production with the NEW QuikTest analyser

Moisture and oil content are two critical quality parameters for many food and ingredients. Failure to maintain consistent and optimal levels of moisture and oil leads to decreased product quality, rework or discard, potential customer issues and ultimately lost profits. 

The QuikTest analyser measures moisture and oil at line in seconds, providing the information needed to keep your production on target.

Wide Range of Applications

The unique design of the QuikTest enables reliable analysis of many sample types including cookies, snack foods, powders such as coffee and spices, cannabis, and pastes such as peanut butter and hummus.

Easy to Use

Simple interface and straightforward operation makes it easy for virtually anyone to make reliable measurements with little to no training.

Quick to Start Up

Delivered pre-calibrated for many products, simply power on the QuikTest and adjust the settings to your product. For proprietary or custom products, calibration can be performed with as few as five samples in minutes.

Reliable Moisture Results

Featuring a look-up orientation, samples in the QuikTest are presented to the analyser behind a quartz lens, dish, vial or bag, providing a repeatable sample interface and no moisture loss during analysis. This presentation provides more reproducible results and no moisture changes over time.  

Versatile Sampling

The QuikTest is available with a static sample stage perfect for analyzing homogenous samples in vials or hard-to-clean samples in disposable bags or petri dishes. For non-homogeneous samples such as cookies, cannabis or hummus, a rotating sample cup measures an increased surface area for accurate and repeatable results.

Features

The QuikTest is a rugged polycarbonate analyzer built for busy production floors Featuring a large 5.7” touchscreen display and a compact footprint. It is easy to set up and start using virtually anywhere in the plant.

  • High accuracy and repeatability
  • Unaffected by relative humidity, changes in product temperature, ambient light and high ambient temperature 
  • Rotating cup option produces rapid, accurate results from non-homogeneous samples

Near Infrared Measurements – How Do They Work?

Near Infrared (NIR) measurements are based on specific absorption bands in the electromagnetic spectrum between 800 and 2500 nanometers (nm).  This region is just above the visible light region of 400 - 700 nm.  Electromagnetic waves in the region have the best combination of energy, sensitivity and absorbtion to be useful for quantitative measurments of solid materials. 

While full spectrum analyzers may utilize the entire spectrum and multivariate mathematical treatments such as Principal Component Regression (PCR), Partial Least Squares (PLS) or neural networks, photometers use “slices” of the spectrum that correspond to specific molecular overtones and associated vibrational absorptions.

NIR Region of Electromagnetic Spectrum

Photometers utilize narrow band pass interference filters that have a specified band width typically 50 nm wide, though the band width is sometimes application dependent.  The NIR has broad bands as opposed to the sharp peaks in the Infrared region.  Common bonds are O-H (1940 and 1420 nm) in water, C-H (2340 nm) in organics and oils and N-H in proteins.  The NIR sensors are extremely sensitive instruments that are optimized to measure the absorbancies of samples at these specific wavelength regions.  The quantity of the constituent to be measured us proportional to the absorbance level at these specific wavelengths.

NIR Absorbances of Chemical Groups

NIR Photometers

Shining light at these wavelengths causes the corresponding chemical bond to vibrate and absorb energy.  Think of different sections of a stadium crowd called upon to shout and jump when their section is highlighted on the stadium Jumbotron.
