Branscan originated over 20 years ago in image analysis of physical properties for the flour milling industry. Its consistent quality control technology is now employed on a global basis within the Flour, Semolina, Milk Powder, Plastics and Chemical industries. Branscan has recently developed a system that combines this proven image analysis of physical properties with NIR (Near Infra Red) technology that looks at chemical composition to give the customer a flexible online monitoring system suitable for the, Chemical, Plastic and Oil industries in addition to the Food industry.
Branscan systems use high speed cameras and a special lighting setup which, when combined with innovative in-house software, allows the detection of impurities in real time.
All the systems are non-destructive and objective. The new InNIRScan system combines impurity detection and NIR, catching a sample for verification and calibration ensuring consistent product control.
