CEREALYS, MEASURING HAGBERG FALLING NUMBER IN 1 MIN

The Hagberg falling number is a key quality criterion for assessing the technological value of wheat (wheat ability to be made into bread). The current method of measuring the falling number requires 15-20 minutes and is not suitable for rapid quality control upon receipt trucks. Indeed, the time available to the farmer and pay to distribute the grain in storage cells is 3 min maximum. Spectralys Innovation has developed the first analyzer capable of analyzing the Hagberg falling number in 1 minute on whole wheat grain to meet the needs of grain collector.

With a set of cooperative partner, this development project allows you topay the right price to the farmer, to eliminate non-conforming lots and prevent blockages in receiving areas. In each case, this rapid and non-destructive measurement saves you functional and operational costs.

The device was designed to be 100% adapted to the silo settings (high dust, temperature variations, etc.).

PRINCIPLE OF MEASUREMENT BY CEREALYS

The analyzer, based on the front- face fluorescence, is composed of an optical unit and an electronic system which provides the illumination of the product with LEDs to the relevant wavelengths, the retrieval and analysis of the transmitted signal to translate it into action. This technique provides a non-destructive real time measurement of the sample.

In just 30 seconds, the analyzer do 3 essential steps to get all the necessary information:

1 – sample illumination with UV-visible light

2 – Recovery of the natural emission of light by biochemical constituents of the grain

3 – Transmition of signal analysis and extraction of information related to the germination of the grain. Many autofluorescent molecules degraded or activated by germination (ATP, NADPH, hydrolyzed protein, B vitamins, starch structure, etc) are used to trace the phenomenon

MANY APPLICATIONS FOR SILO AND PRIMARY INDUSTRIES

– Qualitative Identification of lots and rejection of non-conforming lots

– Adjustment of pricing conditions and rapid grain orientation

– Control at runtime: allotment for optimal storage and suitable mixture of grains

– Evaluation of ingredients to add in the flour: malt flour, ascorbic acid, etc.

– Evaluation of rapid technological potential of the batch to transform according to the techno-functional quality
