Component Analysis

Measurement of fat, protein, lactose and solids.

The component analysis models are designed to measure and calculate milk and dairy components, including: fat A&B, protein, lactose, total solids (TS), solids-non-fat (SNF), urea, milk urea nitrogen (MUN), free fatty acids (FFA), freezing point depression (FPD), added water, pH and a host of other parameters. The technology for analysis utilizes the molecular-bond energy absorptions found in the mid-infrared spectrum. Three different models are available for component analysis:

Bentley FTS 

A state-of-the-art system that utilizes a full Fourier transform of energies from 950 cm-1 to 4000 cm-1. Capable of real-time analysis of up to 500 samples per hour, this instrument is ideal for central laboratories.

DairySpec FT 

The latest model from Bentley Instruments uses the same proven technology as the Bentley FTS but is adapted to the unique needs of a versatile laboratory setting.
