Why measure oil in popcorn?
Controlling the amount of oil in snack food is an important consideration for process operators to control production and quality. Not only can the product be out of specification, but it can also affect the taste, appearance, stability, weight, cost and shelf life. Testing the oil levels will allow adjustments to be made so that manufacturer has the highest quality.
Numerous years of experience and countless installations has allowed MoistTech to developed one of our most accurate oil sensors, the IR3000-F sensor. Ideally suited to measure moisture, oil or flavourings on snack food during the manufacturing process, the sensor is coated in a food grade teflon with a polymeric viewing window enabling manufacturers the ability to improve product quality without any contamination. The IR3000-F provides an instant, accurate, non-contact measurement of moisture, temperature, oil, fat, sugar, seasonings, protein, and more. Uniformity of spray or oil deposition can be monitored and adjusted either manually or automatically.
