30 Second Analysis for Moisture, Fat, Seasoning & FFA

The Phoenix 5000 Snack Food Analyzer offers snack food manufacturers fast, at-line and lab analysis to optimize production, minimize costs and ensure a consistent product.

  • Monitor and confirm quality for incoming ingredients

  • Monitor oil and moisture after fryer or oven

  • Ensure a consistent amount of seasoning

  • Determine oil quality

  • Confirm the quality of finished product

Best Performance

The Phoenix 5000 delivers the best in reliability, precision, and accuracy by utilizing a scanning  monochromator, the most trusted NIR tecnology for producing consistent products.

Easy to Use Software

The Phoenix 5000's software utilizes color coded buttons and tabs to allow operators to learn and use the instrument easily.

Flexible Data Handling

Operators can export results to Excel, LIMS, or modbus. Custom reports can be designed to generate COA's directly on the Phoenix 5000.

Designed for Transferrability

The Phoenix 5000 has configurable wavelength resolutions of 0.5, 1 and 2 nm. This allows us to transfer customer legacy databases from other NIR instruments to the Phoenix 5000 in minutes.

Only The Phoenix 5000 employs a sample handling system that scans more than 90% of the sample within the sample cup.

Other NIR systems only rotate the cup which scans less than 20% of the sample.

The Phoenix 5000's advanced sampling system is able to move the sample cup both laterally and rotationally which increases the total area scanned and  improves accuracy, repeatability and precision.
