Fast and High-Performance NIR Analyzers for Laboratory and At-Line Analysis. Typical constituents measured are moisture, protein, fat, sugar and fibers, as well as more difficult parameters such as ash and amino acids.
SpectraStar XT-3: Moisture, oil and fat analysis of simple sample types.
SpectraStar XT-F: Flour, whole wheat flour, by-products and whole wheat kernel analysis package.
SpectraStar XT-R: Any constituent and complex sample types such as compound feed, forages, processed foods and ingredients.
The SpectraStar XT series of Near Infrared (NIR) Analyzers offers outstanding accuracy and reliability for rapid compositional analysis of solid, slurry, or liquid samples.
SpectraStar XT analyzers contain scanning monochromator technology offering a high signal to noise ratio and the best spectral quality available. The XT analyzers scan across a wide spectral range to accurately predict a wide variety of constituents.
TRUE ALIGNMENT® Spectroscopy (TAS) technology detects and corrects any instrument changes due to shock, temperature, or lamp changes. User-level monitoring and calibration routines align the XT to calibrated standards for consistent results over time and across locations.
The SpectraStar XT has an extensive calibration library consisting of thousands of samples and representing many typical applications and constituents. Calibrations are continuously updated for quick implementation and to ensure accurate predictions across broad sample ranges.Ready-to-use calibrations are also available from Aunir™ for over 70 different feed ingredients as well as compound feeds for poultry, swine, ruminants, horses, and aqua-feed. For unique or proprietary products, custom calibrations can be developed using the optional UCal™ 4 Calibration Development Software. In many cases, starter calibrations are available to jump-start the process and Unity calibration experts ensure rapid and efficient calibration development.
The 17” touch screen monitor and graphical UScan™ analysis program require minimal training for routine operators and includes table and SPC chart displays for easy product monitoring. All configuration settings and results are stored in a secure SQL database for security and traceability.
With a sealed case and touch screen operation, the XT is a stand-alone instrument equally suitable for a fully equipped research laboratory or an at-line installation in a production environment.
The SpectraStar XT NIR Analyzer series has three models available, each optimized for the analysis of specific sample types and applications.
