Flour milling companies are using NIR analyzers to improve production efficiency. Near Infrared (NIR) analyzer is an analytical instrument used to determine moisture, protein, fat and other parameters in a food sample. NIR analyzers used in flour mills analyze wheat and flour for moisture, protein and ash content. NIR analyzers monitor the grain in all the steps of a milling process and give real-time access to quality control parameters. This helps in minimizing manufacturing errors, downtimes and rejections, thus improving flour quality and consistency.
