Real-time, accurate production monitoring for animal feed using in-line feed analysis directly in the process line. It is robust enough to withstand tough production environments and gives instant results for optimized production and profitability.

Key Features

Trend Analysis

ProFoss™ allows you to do direct measurements in the process line, thereby effectively avoiding sampling errors and sample preparation errors. The results are shown in an intuitive graphical display, making it easy to spot variations. Because ProFoss™ is measuring every few seconds it gives a reliable picture of what is going on in the process.

Easy Integration

ProFoss™ can easily be connected to your LIMS or ERP system.

Dedicated Sample Interface

  • Windows interface connected directly to the pipe
  • True in-line – no bypass – reduces waste and sampling errors
  • No moving parts
  • No carry-over effects between analyses
  • IP 65

How to Raise Quality in Flour Milling

Foss Analytical

FOSS creates end-to-end solutions that secure and improve food quality. From raw material to finished product. Our analysis instruments refine measurements into information management that enables businesses to run intelligent data-driven productions with less waste and bigger yields. Controlling cost and quality across all sectors and value chains, we help food and agricultural producers limit the number of human errors, scale their business faster and reduce manual labor as well as labor costs. We call it analytics beyond measure.

We cover these food and agricultural industries: Dairy, Feed and Forage, Grain, Flour Milling & Oilseed Processing, Laboratories, Meat, Raw Milk Testing and Wine.

Over the last 60 years, we have made it our business to define the standard of analytical solutions for the food and agricultural industry. We pioneered advanced analysis for the challenging production environments in the 1960’s, and we were the first to integrate chemical composition analysis in process lines. Now our resolve and ambition have also made us the international benchmark in the field of chemometrics and real time analytics.
