Applications of FT-NIR spectrometers
Optics, part of the Bruker Corporation (NASDAQ:BRKR) is the leading
manufacturer and worldwide supplier of Fourier Transform Infrared, Near Infrared
and Raman spectrometers for various industries and applications.
Bruker entered the field of FT-IR spectroscopy in 1974. The early instruments
set new standards in research FT-IR with evacuable optics, high resolution and
automatic range change. Since then, the product line has been continuously
expanding with instruments suitable for both analytical and research
applications with exceptional performance characteristics.
Today, Bruker Optics offers FT-IR, NIR, Raman, TD-NMR,
TeraHertz spectrometers and imaging spectrographs for various markets and
applications. Bruker Optics has R&D and manufacturing centers in
Ettlingen, Germany and The Woodlands, USA, technical support centers and sales
offices throughout Europe, North and South America and Asia.
Optics offers FT-NIR spectrometers as a quality control tool for the fuel
FT-NIR spectroscopy is a widely used technique that can do rapid and
non-destructive measurements in seconds. This technique can achieve multiple
analysis results per measurement and determine real-time chemical information
at-line and in-line.
Optics FT-NIR spectrometers can be used for Fuel Ethanol Industry for the
- Monitoring incoming grain: moisture, starch, fat and protein contents
- Fermentation monitoring: ethanol, glucose, starch, glycerol, lactic acid and
other carbohydrates in fermented mash
- Dry house operations: moisture, protein, fat, fiber and ash content in DDGS
- QC analysis of by-products: percent solids in syrup.
