The Dupps Company is proud to announce the introduction of its new NIR spectrometer system for renderers – an innovative solution to accurately measure the content of rendering process streams in real-time, without time-consuming and costly off-line analysis.
NIR (Near InfraRed) spectroscopy measures the wavelength properties of light reflected by a material to determine that material’s characteristics and composition. Applied to rendering process streams, NIR analysis reveals important information about the product as it is being rendered – including protein, fat, moisture and ash content – so that vital production control and product qualities can be optimized and waste minimized. Moreover, unlike traditional slow and sometimes inaccurate off-line lab testing, NIR analysis can be done continually, accurately and in real-time. The system’s sensor and other hardware were specifically designed and built to operate in the often harsh environmental conditions encountered in rendering operations.
