#5 Weekly Application: Soy Milk

#5 Weekly Application: Soy Milk 🥛

Soy milk is a plant-based drink produced by soaking and grinding soybeans, boiling the mixture, and filtering out remaining particulates. It consists of tiny particles (such as proteins, fibers, and other solids) that remain dispersed in the liquid. Monitoring suspended solids in soy milk serves two main purposes:

1. Quality Assurance: suspended solids impact the texture, taste, and appearance of soy milk. By monitoring them, producers can maintain consistent quality across batches.

2. Process Optimization: real-time monitoring allows adjustments during production. Whether it’s adjusting mixing times or optimizing filtration, precise control ensures optimal product characteristics.

How does Kemtrak measure soy milk´s suspended solid?

In production, several critical steps ensure consistent quality and safety. A probe is installed in the production line, connected to an analyzer. As soy milk flows past the probe, the analyzer assesses turbidity based on backscattered light (180 degrees) caused by suspended solids.

🔑 Key benefits include:

1. Consistency: constant checking of the light output and the dark current through the photodetector components ensures drift free measurement over long periods of time without compromising sensitivity.

2. Efficiency: avoid costly downtime or product recalls by catching deviations early. Interfaces can be accurately monitored, in-line and in real time, over the full range of milk-fat concentrations anywhere in the dairy or creamery.

3. Minimal maintenance: The Kemtrak Soy milk analyzer’s design ensures reliable operation with minimal maintenance. Long-life solid-state LED lamps and precision fiber optics are used to provide drift and noise free measurement.
