Why Use NIR For Quality Control?

Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR) is a fast, safe, and reliable technology that rapidly analyses raw ingredients and finished products. NIR allows producers to make quick and informed product adjustments giving tighter control over the manufacturing process. Quicker product and ingredient insights also helps manufacturers optimise the use of materials and ingredients and reduces off-specification product, saving reprocessing or disposal costs. NIR is a secondary technique that is calibrated by analysing a set of known samples. With analysis time at approximately 50 seconds per sample it provides real time results that can be used to directly impact on the manufacturing process. NIR (near infrared spectroscopy) can be used for quantitative analysis (determination of property concentrations); qualitative analysis (identification of raw materials, intermediate and finished products) and process control.
