Rapid Milk Fat Analysis

LABTEK Services supply high quality rapid fat analysis instruments that enable the dairy supplier to make cost effective decisions based upon using cream to its maximum efficiency by increasing the supplier’s knowledge of butterfat levels.

LABTEK currently have two rapid fat analysis instruments both of which are excellent value and provide consistent sustainable results.

REIL Electronic Milk Tester
Four Channels enable the small processor to test a wide range of products up to 60% butterfat with dilution, without re-calibration. The machine provides instant results saving time and money, and allowing the processor to monitor butterfat levels throughout operations efficiently.

Tests taken at regular intervals can provide information on:

  • Fluctuations in raw milk fat % levels
  • Samples of cream and skim as they leave the separator
  • Fat % levels when standardising
  • Finished products for sale reducing wastage and improving efficiency

Increased knowledge of butterfat levels can allow the processor to make cost effective decisions, using cream to its maximum efficiency.

  • Auto zero facility
  • 4 Separate calibration channels
  • Versatile – Measures raw/homogenised milk, cream, skim and whey
  • Easy to read display
  • Semi-automatic operation
ITR Milk Tester MK 3.2
The ITR Milk Tester Mk 3.2 uses a photometric measurement of light scattered by fat globules in a milk sample. In its raw state the milk fat globules are not of a constant size and a four stage homogeniser prepares the sample before presentation to the measuring cell. Other solids that may contribute to the light scatter are dissolved using an EDTA solution in the dilution process.

The photometric method of fat % determination is time tested and remains one of the most efficient and effective means of obtaining accurate and repeatable results.

The ITR 3.2 is a simple to use rapid butterfat tester. It measures the fat content of a milk sample from presentation of the milk sample to final result in approximately 20 seconds.

  • Rapid fat % determination in milk products
  • High accuracy and repeatability
  • 6-Channel push button multi-calibox
  • High speed-120 samples per hour
  • Semi-automatic operation
  • Skim milk readings to 3 decimal places
  • Small sample volume – 1.6ml
