Save Money and improve Quality

Perten Instruments offers analytical tools which enable you to save money and increase income. With the DA 7250 NIR Feed Analyzer you will have one instrument for analysis of raw materials, in-process material as well as finished feeds.

At the raw material intake

A high and consistent quality starts with having full control of your raw materials. With a DA 7250 from Perten Instruments you can determine the quality of all incoming shipments, enabling you to formulate using real values instead of crop report values or supplier data. Our customers find that this helps them reduce safety margins and trim the actual protein content of the finished products by minimum 0.5-1 percentage points, which means huge savings on the protein sources.

At the mixer

Should something happen during weighing or batching, the last chance to fix it is at the mixer. Using the DA 7250 samples do not have to be ground prior to analysis, and it only takes seconds to ensure that the batch is according to specifications. As the DA 7250 is so easy to use, several of our customers have made product quality and quality control the responsibility of the production staff, with excellent results. Lab technicians are then able to spend more time on complex issues.

Optimize drying

A too high moisture content means a risk of fungal infection, but if the moisture content is too low you are giving away product for free. The DA 7250 makes it possible to determine moisture content after the dryer, for immediate adjustment of drying time and temperature.

Optimize fat coating

Using a DA 7250 you will be able to optimize the fat coating of pellets, helping you to save money and meet the nutritional requirements. As an analysis is done in seconds and requires no sample grinding, it is very easy to measure and adjust the fat content of the product.

At load-out

With the speed of our DA 7250 it is feasible, and recommendable, to check the contents of every truck before dispatch. Draw a sample, bring it to the analyzer, and a few seconds later you can assure that the right product was loaded, avoiding customer complaints and costly take-backs. As the DA 7250 is so easy to use, you don’t need to tie up your lab technicians’ time, but could leave the final quality control to for example the truck driver.
