The oilseed processing industry faces tight process control to be profitable. First, oilseeds are commodities and profit margins can be very low for processors, putting pressure on the plant to maximize yield with minimal resources. Second, with regards to oilseed by-products, like feed ingredients, reliable analytical data and process control inputs allow operators to hit protein targets to maximize the return from the input feedstock and minimize claims. In both cases, near-infrared (NIR) technologies from KPM Analytics allow oilseed plant processors to maintain quality control at every step of the process.

Segment Overview

NIR technology has many applications in an oilseed processing plant, where rapid analytical results lead to increased efficiency and cost savings. Examples include:

Optimizing the Oil Extraction Process: Since oilseeds vary widely on composition, NIR instrumentation can collect values on protein, fiber, and other parameters of incoming feedstock or flakes. This allows plant operators to control their process and maximize extraction efficiency.

Meal Analysis: Oilseed is sold as a protein rich feed ingredient, typically priced on a guaranteed protein basis. With NIR technology, operators can monitor the composition of the meal and adjust their process to meet specifications.

Laboratory Quality Control Costs: Instead of outsourcing samples, at-line NIR analysis can analyze hundreds of in-process and finished product samples per day, and deliver results in less than a minute. This provides a significant savings to the plant, while allowing the operator and adjust as needed.

With the help of KPM analytics, oilseed crushing plants have access to accurate and timely analytical values can help control their process, save money, and improve yield.
