ABB has been a world leader in industrial FT-NIR analysis solutions for many years. We have worked together with customers and the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS) to help define standard methods for FT-NIR calibration and analysis of oils and fats. The result is the MB3600-CH10 laboratory FT-NIR oils and fats analyser.
The MB3600-CH10 is supplied complete with pre-calibrations for iodine value (IV) and % trans fat (%trans) suitable for a wide variety of sample types, including raw and processed vegetable oils. It is therefore ready to use for quick lab analysis and fast product release.
The MB3600-CH10 laboratory analyser simplifies oil and fat quality analysis in the laboratory. It combines the analysis of IV and %trans in a single measurement. Analysis is performed using disposable vials, which eliminate sample cell cleaning. The measurement time is only one minute after the sample has reached the fixed measurement temperature.
ABB has developed manufacturing methods which ensure that all of our laboratory and process FT-NIR analysers are highly stable, have a highly linear photometric response and provide identical absorbance spectra. This guarantees calibration transferability from lab to process without any additional calibration efforts or data manipulation.
The MB3600-CH10 simplifies the development of local site-data based calibration models, allowing the analyser to be used for a wide range of process streams and properties. Many of our customers have successfully developed their own rigorous and stable calibration models.
