Manufacturers of potato chips, corn chips, and similar snacks benefit from NDC solutions.
Firing Industries is Canada’s top source for test and measurement equipment by NDC Technologies for the food-processing sector. Among NDC’s innovative products are its moisture measurement devices and analyzers – specifically, the MM710e On-Line Snacks Gauge and InfraLab At-Line Analyzer, both of which are recommended for manufacturers of snack foods.
Oil measurement is an important application in the snack-food industry, so NDC produces moisture measurement devices that can handle this specific purpose.
Fast, continuous on-line measurement
Producers of corn chips, popcorn, pretzels, and puffed corn require quick, continuous on-line measurement and fast at-line analysis of moisture and oil in their products. NDC’s solutions offer real-time data, so users can achieve meaningful control of the process. Product consistency and quality are important to retain customer loyalty, so precise oil measurement is always necessary.
The MM710e is a versatile device that can store multiple applications in one unit, which is particularly useful when a company is producing more than one product or variant on a production line. These moisture measurement devices have stainless steel housing that can be air-cooled for installation in areas with ambient temperatures higher than 50 degrees Centigrade. With its choice of Ethernet or Analog connectivity, users can incorporate the MM710e into closed-loop control systems to maintain key parameters within specification limits.
The InfraLab can measure a product sample in only five seconds, which assists with process visibility. With its Ethernet connectivity and USB data-download function, it is an ideal alternative to laboratory chemical and gravimetric measurement methods.
Both the MM710e and the InfraLab analyzer are available as single components or as a dual-component measurement format for moisture and oil. Relevant applications for both include moisture, fat, and oil measurement for potato chips, corn dough, corn chips, popcorn, and pretzels.
Major advantages of these devices include the following:
- Improved product consistency;
- Higher productivity;
- Reduced reliance on routine lab testing;
- Compliance with labelled specifications; and
- Assurance that snacks have the right crunch.
With help from Firing Industries, NDC can fulfill any oil-measuring requirements.
