What you can analyze

Our analyzers can take care of most of the analytical requirements at a petfood plant. The following are the parameters that are the most commonly measured with our instruments:

  • Moisture
  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Starch
  • Fiber
  • Ash
  • Amino acids
  • Sugars

Calibrations for these and other parameters are available for a large number of raw materials and finished petfoods. All products can be analyzed as they are, whether they are in the shape of pellets, pastes, flakes or other shapes like treats.

  • Dry and wet finished petfood (dog, cat etc)
  • Grains (wheat, corn, barley, oats, etc)
  • Protein sources (meat meals, fish meal, oilseed meals, DDG etc)
  • Other (wheat middlings, corn feed meal, wheat bran etc)

Spectral data collected on other NIR models can be transferred to the DA 7250™, to provide a seamless upgrade from your old equipment.
