MilkoScan™ FT1 Milk standardisation with in-built abnormality screening The MilkoScan™ FT1 analyser is dedicated to liquid dairy production. It allows you to control and standardise liquid dairy products while simultaneously screening for abnormalities. It is ideal for: • Rapid control at the platform for optimal segregation, fair payment and screening for abnormalities • Milk standardisation for optimal use of raw material and consistent quality products • Monitoring the quality of final products Milk parameters Fat, Protein, Lactose, Total Solids, SnF, FPD, Total Acidity, Density, FFA, Citric Acids, Casein, Urea, Sucrose, Glucose, Fructose Dedicated Analytical Solutions Raw material intake Production Finished products Value Pay the right price Providing up to 120 reliable measurements per hour, the MilkoScan FT1 helps to ensure that payments to suppliers are neither too high nor too low, but spot on. Protect against adulteration Raw milk containing abnormalities is a growing problem. The abnormalities can be caused by deliberate adulteration, for example, with lard or melamine or by accidents if water or cleaning agents are mixed with the milk. With the MilkoScan FT1 you can screen incoming raw milk samples to identify a suspect raw milk sample quickly and as a normal part of everyday testing. The suspect sample can then be further analysed to determine the contaminant. Smart segregation A quick measurement at intake for mass balance calculation allows effective and reliable results for subsequent standardisation of milk entering production. Standardise for profit and consistent quality The concept of standardising milk in the process is increasingly popular as a means to improving economy in dairy production. For instance, consider the advantage of more accurate information about fat content. A dairy plant producing 300,000 litres of milk per day can use the accuracy of the MilkoScan FT1 to carefully adjust the mass balance of milk in silos with savings of e.g. 0.014% fat per processed litre of milk. Over the course of a year, this seemingly small saving mounts up to US$ 60,000. Beyond the financial gains of standardisation, the improved consistency of end products builds and protects your brand. The MilkoScan FT1 is also ideal for ensuring final product consistency as well. Rapid return and low running costs A wealth of technical features built on the renowned MilkoScan platform ensures smooth operations for a fast return on investment and economic long term use.

Technology Purpose built FTIR unit for reliable analysis operations Built on the well proven technology behind the world’s most widely used FTIR analyser - the MilkoScan FT120 - the MilkoScan FT1 provides a solid platform for liquid milk analysis, With Fourier transform infrared technology (FTIR), the operator does not have to handle any chemicals. Tests are easy to perform with a low risk of operator error. The FTIR interferometer scans the full mid-infrared spectrum which makes It a robust FTIR solution for use in the laboratory and offers high repeatability and sensitivity. The accuracy and repeatability of results are comparable to the chemical methods (or better), but does not require the long testing time. The performance is in compliance with AOAC (Association of Analytical Chemists) and IDF (International Dairy Federation). Results are automatically stored on a PC for traceability. Auto clean and low sample temperature for flexible analysis The automatic clean and zero module reduces operator time by allowing rapid single sample analysis with no time required for cleaning. The operator can just present the sample and leave after 30 seconds. A wide operating range (5 - 55°C) allows direct analysis of even cold but homogeneous samples. Instrument standardisation MilkoScan FT1 instruments are standardised for high stability, for example, to give the same results regardless cuvette wear. Likewise, if a new cuvette is installed, only minor slope and intercept adjustments are required. Calibrations ready to use Ready-made calibrations allow for the simultaneous analysis of major parameters in most raw, intermediate and finished dairy products. The calibrations are based on the extensive FOSS FTIR database built up over more than 15 years. If your product recipe changes or you are developing new dairy products, you can easily make your own calibrations. The software has a purpose-built calibration toolbox that easily guides you through the calibration development process. Natural raw milk has a particular spectrum – a unique fingerprint. If the sample is somehow different from normal milk it will be detected immediately with spectrum screening as shown by the red line for an abnormal sample against the normal shown in green. Integrated abnormality screening Integrated food safety screening is provided in the form of the FOSS abnormality screening module (ASM). The ASM Module allows MilkoScan analysers based on Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) technology to be programmed to screen for abnormalities in milk. The screening is done at the same time as the compositional measurements are performed. No extra equipment or time is required. A sample of milk is tested against a profile for normal milk, and a warning is given if there is a mismatch. This alerts the user to the need for further testing to determine the nature of the abnormality. Natural raw milk has a particular infrared spectrum – a unique fingerprint. Using FTIR analysis, it is possible to program an analyser to recognise the spectra (or fingerprint) representing pure raw milk. A warning is then given when samples do not meet the criteria for pure milk. If the sample is somehow different from pure milk it will be detected immediately. Some examples of what can be detected include: • • • • Cleaning agents Milk mixing Addition of water Protein and fat adulterants In practice, ASM allows screening for an unlimited number of unknown and known potential adulterants, including lard, cleaning agents, melamine and many others. Warning levels can be set for these known adulterants, and the limiting factor for both known and unknown abnormalities is defined by the mid-infrared wavelength range used, which covers a vast range of potential abnormalities.
