Quality Control During Oilseed Processing
Quality control in an oilseed crushing plant using NIR (near-infrared) spectrometers involves the use of a non-destructive analytical technique to measure the chemical composition of the oilseeds. With the help of KPM, oilseed crushing plants have access to accurate and timely analytical values which can help control their process, save money, and improve yield.
Moisture and Compositional Analysis
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, meal analysis, and laboratory quality control cost.
Nutrient Analysis of Soil Extracts
Oilseeds including soybean, canola, peanuts, rapeseed, and sunflower grown in various regions around the world and require consistent moisture and sun to flourish. Fertilizers are commonly used to help provide a boost of nutrients to improve yields. For both economic and environmental reasons, it is important for oilseed growers to manage soil quality.
