Breakfast Cereal Analysis

with the Phoenix 5000

The Phoenix 5000 Breakfast Cereal Analyzer offers cereal manufacturers fast, at-line and lab analysis to optimize production, minimize costs and ensure a consistent product.

The Phoenix 5000 can provide results in 30 second for: 


Moisture & Sugar

Snack food manufacturers can use this information to:

  • Monitor and confirm quality for incoming ingredients

  • Monitor oil and moisture after fryer or oven

  • Ensure a consistent amount of sugar

  • Confirm the quality of finished product


Samples can be analyzed with little to no preparation on most samples. The software is simple and intuitive and may be operated by anyone in the facility.



Simply pack/pour a sample into the sample cup and then press the scan button located on the touch screen display.


The sample cup automatically rotates to take multiple measurements of the sample. Results are displayed in 30 seconds or less and can be exported into a variety of formats including, excel, LIMS and PLC.

Innovative Sample Handling

The Phoenix 5000's innovative sample handling ensure you scan more than 85% of the sample cup. Compare this to 25% with other NIR instruments - the Phoenix 5000 will produce more repeatable and consistent results.

Easy to Access Lamp

The Phoenix 5000 requires little maintenance and has few annual consumables. The light source is an 8W, low power halogen lamp that is rated for 10,000 hours. Most users only change it once per year. The lamp housing is easy to access via 4 phillips head screws on the exterior of the unit and the lamp can be replaced in under 5 minutes..
