Applications

Consistent Product Quality, Increased Yield, and Reduced Waste

Applications for On-Line NIR Sensing

The applications of the MCT460 Series range from snack food production to tortillas and cereals, to tobacco, wood, and biofuels. The sensors are capable of a closed loop control of fryers, ovens, belt speed, paper re-moisturizers, and other processes where moisture variation is controlled. The MCT460 Series can also be easily integrated into existing control systems with industry-standard IO protocols, adding data to maximize process efficiency.

Product Lineup

Thousands of MCT460 sensors have been installed at many of the largest food and industrial manufacturing plants in the world. They help operators control moisture to within one tenth of a percent to meet product specs every time. The MCT460 is built using NIR technology that is widely used and accepted in a wide range of industries for moisture, oil, or other on-line measurements.

The MCT460 Series are proven to perform in harsh environmental conditions for food or industrial applications. The MCT460 Series is built to last, simple to install, and virtually maintenance free for years of reliable, consistent results. Choose from three models based on your application.

How It Works

Proven Technology for Food & Industrial Applications

The MCT460 Series NIR analyzers are integrated into key areas of a production process to continuously monitor incoming raw materials or control processes on the production line. Each option is designed to integrate seamlessly over belt conveyors, auger/screw conveyors, or bins & chutes to analyze moisture, oil, and other on-line measurements.

The MCT460 scanning process is simple but reliable:

  1. Light from the lamp is directed through a rotating wheel at 2000rpm containing NIR filters selected for the application
  2. NIR light is directed onto the product being measured
  3. The light reflected off the product is captured by a mirror within the unit and focused onto a Peltier Cooled Lead sulfide detector.
  4. The detector’s output is taken by the on-board “smart” circuit board and compares to the internal reference beam. This is then converted into a percent of moisture, oil, and other parameters.
