ProSpect- Inline Dairy Process Control


ProSpect Inline NIR AnalyserIn-line Testing and Standardisation

ProSpect in-line process control has been designed with the dairy industry in mind. The ProSpect analyser delivers you a level of speed and precision in product testing unachievable with traditional laboratory testing. The ProSpect inline analyser is calibrated to the laboratory method, ensuring accuracy, but removing the representative sample issues, delays and costs associated with post-batch standardisation. With it's inline position, the ProSpect analyser automatically and continuously controls your correct milk and dairy product composition/ recipe.

Optimum Uptime, Thanks to Easy Maintenance 

Unlike alternative solutions, the ProSpect inline process analyser requires very little maintenance. The sanitary flow cell is integrated into CIP routines and doesn't need to be removed for inspection or calibration. Since the ProSpect analyser operates in-line there is no product waste during sampling and it is cleaned with the same chemicals as your process system.

The ProSpect inline process control requires very little routine maintenance ensuring your continual process control and giving you very high uptime. Scheduled Preventative Maintenance is only required annually.

ProSpect Inline Process ControlEasy to Install

The ProSpect in-line analyser is easily installed adjacent to your process system and with little downtime. Fibre optic cables are installed directly into your process line in a specifically designed hygienic stainless steel flow cell.

The ProSpect in-line analyser also seamlessly integrates into existing PLC/ Control Platforms in operation throughout the plant. Speedy implementation is easily achieved thanks to the pre-loaded calibrations that require only a small amount of localisation.

Robust Design

Specifically designed for the milk and dairy process environment, the ProSpect in-line analyser is enclosed in a hygienic stainless steel NEMA 4 sealed cabinet. With the manufacturer's company history steeped in process system design and manufacture they have been sure to design an analyser that tolerates everything a harsh process environment can throw at it including: vibrations, humidity and temperature fluctuations.


Simple to Operate

The completely automated in-line process control continuously compares multiple constituents and their concentration against production parameters, feeding required information to the Process Operator and to the integrated process control.

True Transmission Based Near Infrared Analysis for Unsurpassed Accuracy

At the heart of the ProSpect in-line analyser is the Near-infrared Spectrometer using an ultra high resolution diode array detector to deliver continuous, accurate analysis in transmittance mode. Transmission NIR has long been recognised as superior for in-line liquid analysis requiring high accuracy.


Calibrations have been developed for a wide range of milk and dairy products such as: MPC, WPC, skim milk, butter, cheese milk and cheese. To ensure a speedy implementation the ProSpect in-line analyser is pre-calibrated for multiple constituents including Fat, Protein, Lactose and Total Solids.


ProSpect Inline Process ControlThe ProSpect inline analyser has been specifically designed for the dairy industry by Ametek Mocon. Uniquely, the ProSpect inline analyser brings real-time control of production and testing to milk-based process lines utilising the strengths of Transmission based Near-Infrared Analysis. With Real-time product composition information and control manufacturer.s can optimise production, quality and formula management in milk and dairy. With immediate milk analysis and accurate information about your dairy product blending and product composition you can adjust your processes to maintain your product consistency, reducing product giveaway, out-of-spec products and safety margins.

Better Process Control Equates to Increased Profit
