For over a century, Xylem’s well known global brands have served the food & beverage market, including the Dairy Industry. We offer deep application expertise from decades of leading innovation with products, systems and services that address the full cycle of food and beverage production. Our products are sold into more than 150 countries. Working in true partnership with our customers and end users, we listen, learn and adapt to local environments, delivering solutions with more impact than ever before.
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. These include glucose, lactate, sucrose, galactose and lactose within the dairy industry with applications varying from lactose in cheese/milk, lactate in silage, probiotic production and many more.
Xylem Analytics is proud to offer analysers from globally recognised brands, YSI and OI Analytical.
The YSI 2950D biochemistry analyser features highly accurate sensors for fast and reputable results. Using the inherent specificity of enzymes for a single target analyte, YSI's proprietary immobilized enzyme electrodes allow a rapid, accurate and largely interference free measurement to be made in 60 seconds.
The unique fluidics and chamber design resist clogging - even at high cell densities. Combining trusted measurement technology, and an easy-to-use graphic user interface, with the latest in automated sample handling, the YSI 2950 offers one of the easiest and cost effective was to measure chemistries including lactose and lactate.
The Flow Solution™ 3700 Automated Chemistry Analyzer from OI Analytical, has been designed to improve laboratory productivity by automating wet chemistry procedures. With the ability to run upwards of 30-60 samples per hour. With intuitive, Windows-compatible software that doesn't require a PhD to run, the FS 3700 simplifies the automation of wet chemistries including ammonia/TKN, nitrate/nitrite, total phosphorus, and even the occasional cyanide test.
Electrochemistry solutions from Xylem Analytics include titrators from SI Analytics, and general purpose laboratory meters, and pH electrodes from WTW.
The TitroLine® 7800 is a universal titrator with wireless IDS® technology, and a highly visible full colour display. With IDS® multifunctional measurement input the TitroLine® 7800 is able to perform potentiometric titrations with analogue or IDS® electrodes up to volumetric Karl Fischer titrations. Digital sensors for the determination of pH and ORP can be connected, as well as USB keyboards, flash drives and sample changers.
The SenTix® range of electrodes include low-maintenance electrodes, precision electrodes, electrodes with or without temperature sensors, analogue electrodes and digital electrodes including IDS technology.
The inoLab® from WTW can accurately measure pH, ORP, conductivity, and DO/BOD. The inoLab features a large, easy to read display and USB connectivity. A Continuous Measurement Control (CMC) feature displays continual monitoring of the sensor's measuring range, whilst the Quality Sensor Control (QSC) monitors the condition of each pH electrode, for peace of mind.
Bellingham + Stanley offer world leading expertise in optical engineering, electronics and software design, which has enabled them to create instruments that are used extensively throughout pharmaceutical, chemical, petroleum, food, drinks and dairy industries.
RFM300-T Series refractometers are capable of measuring non-homogenous samples, and feature three decimal place Brix precision and a high quality touchscreen interface.
ADP400 Series polarimeters have a resolution of 0.001 angular degrees (°A) and are capable of reading to an accuracy of ±0.010 °A. When working under laboratory controlled conditions, ADP400 polarimeters also offer excellent reproducibility of up to 0.002 °A.
ebro, a Xylem brand, specialises in designing and manufacturing high quality thermometers, data loggers, and food oil quality meters for use in medical, pharmaceutical and food & beverage - including catering and cold chain.
