Making food better, one particle at a time. IFT 2015
Your morning cup of coffee.
The ranch dressing on your buffalo chicken salad.
A piece of savory chocolate after a long day of work.
If it was a really rough day…. Your pint of beer.
You might not realize it, but Microtrac’s play a significant role in ensuring the food products we consume on a daily basis meet specified flavor profiles.
Translation – we measure particles, to help guarantee that your food will taste great!
Since 1974, manufacturers of dry powders, wet suspensions, and emulsions have relied on Microtrac to help develop, measure, and improve their products.
A lot of science and engineering goes into the production of the food we enjoy. Although we play a small role in a much larger picture, certifying that the material stays within a defined particle size distribution is a vital part of the process.
Microtrac is proud to be participating in the 2015 version of the International Food Technology meeting and expo, commonly referred to as IFT. The conference takes place from 7/11 to 7/15. Held at McCormick Place, in Chicago, Illinois, IFT brings together food science professionals from around the world to discuss the latest and greatest developments in the industry.
Located at booth 1710, Microtrac will be displaying the following particle characterization solutions:
Bluewave – Ideal for multi-mode distributions that consist of nanoparticles and micron sized particles, the Bluewave is the first laser diffraction particle size analyzer to use blue laser diodes for measuring dry powders and wet suspensions. Taking full advantage of the blue lasers shorter wavelength, the Bluewave provides users with superior resolution on both the low end and high end of the distribution. Measuring from 10 nanometers to 2800 microns, the Bluewave can also be integrated with a dynamic image analyzer to visually validate agglomeration.
PartAn3d – Patented 3D technology provides users with comprehensive size and morphology information. By utilizing high speed, high-resolution cameras, the PartAn captures multiple pictures of a single particles orientation, enabling accurate length, width, and thickness measurement. Our 3D analysis allows users to gain a deeper understanding of how morphology affects material quality, providing organizations with information that enables them to be proactive rather than reactive. The PartAn can measure particles ranging in size from 4 microns to several inches.
Working with nanoparticles? Don’t forget to ask about our DLS systems. Our DLS systems can measure from ppm to near finished product with the highest sensitivity and repeatability on the market.
We look forward to seeing you in Chicago.
