Impurities (specks) in the final
product (e.g. flour or semolina), most often caused by break of sifters,
are the most common and by customers immediately
visible causes for complaints and increased ash contents.
Incorrect settings, break of sifters and
faulty conditioning can be detected early and can be corrected before major
The ‘Speck-Counter’ monitors color and speck
content of the final product automatically, continuously and in real-time.
Curves and measured values are displayed on
a computer screen and can always be traced, or printed. The system offers
user-configurable alarm outputs with potential-free contacts.
The system consists of the following
- color camera with lighting in a
dust-proof stainless steel housing
- top quality PC with long life
- software for acquisition, analysis,
display and storage of data
- control box with inputs and outputs
- bypass with screw conveyor in compact
stainless steel construction
Customer advantages and application area:
Increase yield. Reduce energy. Improve quality.
No waste of time. No
waste of money.
Online system for full automatic optical check of bulk materials such as
flour or semolina
* ATEX compliant, for use in Zone 22
* up to two measuring units for two
* measuring bypass in stainless steel construction
* PC system for data storage and visualization
* signaling of deviations
* configurable alarm outputs
* color and impurities (specks)
Simple and rapid laboratory measurement of color, whiteness and color
The OKS scanner is a set of proven speck counter
software, a sample container with accessories and a high-quality CCD scanner.
The system can be connected to an existing laboratory PC and requires a

feature of this system is an objective and reliable measurement of colors and
specks and the great reference surface (about 6 dm²). The human eye is often
inaccurate and manually signed up results are difficult to compare (different
laboratory personnel, different lighting conditions). Because the system
performs an objective and reproducible measurements, it enables the operation
to save costs and to significantly accelerate the processes in the laboratory.
With OKS scanner, bulk goods such as flour and
semolina, are examined for color, brightness and impurities. The system is
very user-friendly and self-explanatory. Through an integrated database and

To help companies process raw material more cost-effectively
The AAT system is the result of development work with customers in the
Today, commercial pressures mean that more and more wheat is processed soon
after the grain has been harvested. This in turn puts more pressure on the
millers as the gluten strength of newly harvested wheat is not developed and
therefore the baking quality is lower. Ascorbic acid or vitamin C is a popular
additive which is added to the flour to improve baking properties.
retaining capacity and the smoothness of the dough are improved, which in turn
leads to a larger volume in the finished baked goods.
The addition of
the ascorbic acid to the flour needs to be carefully and precisely
out. If the granulation is too rough, there is a risk that it is sifted out.
If it is too fine, lumps can form and clog the whole dosing.
amount of addition of ascorbic acid to flour is very low and is depending on
the type between 1-20 grams per 100 kg of flour. If too much ascorbic acid is
added, it possibly affects the dough in a negative way.
So, it is all
the more important to dose the added amount exactly and to be able to control
Here helps the AAT system
The AAT system for flour is a laboratory analysis system. It uses a
high quality optical
camera and sophisticated software for digital
The AAT software is flexible and can be adjusted
on each method by push of a button.
A flour sample is placed on a
Pekar- slab and gets coated with Tauber reagent or iodine solution. This
small board is placed in the AAT system under the camera. Then, the number
and size of the detected points are measured, analyzed and stored.
The software generates a job report with data concerning the number of
dots and the uniformity of the ascorbic acid treatment.
software it is also possible to draw conclusions about the ascorbic acid
addition quantity by interpretation of stored records (linear regression)
For the AAT system, the laboratory requires only one Windows PC
(with Windows XP, Vista or 7) and a monitor with a minimum resolution of
1440 x 900 pixels. The system is connected via an USB port.
