Our instruments for grain quality testing

AT THE COUNTRY ELEVATOR

Inframatic 9500 NIR Grain Analyzer

In less than 1 minute the IM 9500 determines moisture, protein, test weight, oil, starch and more in all kinds of grains and oilseeds. It is the most modern and advanced NIR grain analyzer available and is officially approved in a number of countries. Read more about the Inframatic 9500 Grain Analyzer

 

Inframatic 8800 NIR Grain Analyzer

The IM 8800 is a portable grain analyzer. It determines moisture, protein and oil in less than 2 minutes, and can be used basically anywhere. Its GPS module enables point specific sampling to generate protein maps on-the-go. Read more about the Inframatic 8800.

 

Aquamatic 5200 Grain Moisture Meter

Determine moisture and Test Weight/Hectoliter Weight in all types of grains and oilseeds in only 10 seconds. The Aquamatic is based on recent development work performed by the USDA and is the most accurate moisture meter available. Read more about the AM 5200 Grain Moisture Meter.

 

Falling Number

The world standard for Falling Number determination. Officially approved by the ICC, AACC, ISO and ASBC. Detect sprout damage in wheat, rye and barley. Read more about Falling Number.

 

Lab mills

Hammer mills and disc mills for all kinds of sample preparation needs, including for Falling Number, Glutomatic and Inframatic 8600. Read more about Lab mills.

 

AT CENTRAL GRAIN LABS, PORT FACILITIES AND INTERNATIONAL TRADE

 

In addition to the products listed above, we also recommend:

RVA

A flexible heating, cooling and variable shear viscometer suitable for testing all grains (maize, rice, wheat, durum, barley, sorghum, millet, oats, rye, triticale, amaranth, pulses). Enzyme activity and pasting properties of starch using a standard 13 minute test.  Screening tests for protein gelation (soy, gluten etc). Customize your own methods. Traceable calibration complies with ISO9000. Read more about the RVA.

 

doughLAB

Conventional z-arm dough mixer and analysis system to determine the quality, mixing characteristics and water requirements of wheat flour, wholemeal and semolina doughs for milling, baking, pasta and noodles. Programmable temperature and mixing speed to develop rapid tests, emulate commercial conditions, add ingredients, develop low water doughs, or paste the starch. Read more about the doughLAB.

 

Glutomatic

Although wheat protein content is most commonly tested, it is really the gluten which is important. The gluten characteristics is what influences the breadbaking qualities of the wheat, and although protein content is a fairly accurate quick test, it does not provide the full answer. The Glutomatic System is the world standard for determination of wheat gluten content and quality. Read more about the Glutomatic.

 

SKCS 4100

For a wheat miller or a barley maltster it is not enough to know the average quality of the raw material, but the homogeneity is what counts. The SKCS 4100 determines important parameters such as hardness, kernel size, kernel weight and moisture, on a kernel-by-kernel basis making it possible to find out if the grain is soft, hard or mixed. Read more about the SKCS 4100.
