Xylem Analytics offers a wide range of dedicated solutions for raw milk - providing new opportunities to optimise dairy production from improving quality and safety of raw material and verification of end products.
Whenever microorganism are added to raw milk, pH measurement helps to control the process and provides quality of the end product. For example, the pH value of yoghurt will decrease in just a few hours from pH 6,8 to pH 4,4 (equivalent to 1% lactic acid) when the fermentation will be stopped and the product cooled for packaging. Similar processes can be seen when producing whey butter, cheese and others such products.
Analysis of lactose is a critical in milk processing. Lactose is a disaccharide composed of the monosaccharides D-glucose and D-galactose, joined in a ß-1,4-glycosidic linkage and being optically active, polarimetry provides a simple analysis. Further methodology includes mid-infrared detection, fluorometry, photometric, gravimetric detection, differential pH techniques, oxidation-reduction titration, gas/liquid chromatography, high pressure liquid chromatography and enzymatic assays; many of which are provided by Xylem brands. Our TitroLine Titrators are ideal for measuring sodium, chloride, calcium and Kjeldahl nitrogen content of certain dairy products.
Simple refractometers to test for milk adulteration at point of collection at the farm or in the factory as well as for checking the °Brix of sweet additives such as jams or creams in yoghurts, donuts and pastries.
Using YSI’s highly accurate biosensor technology, the 2950 may measure up to 6 compatible chemistries.
