Kett's New NIR Spectrometer Leads Innovation For Composition Analyzers

Posted by John Bogart on Thu, Dec 12, 2013 @ 08:12 AM

Kett Composition Analyzer BSS1700This new instrument provides instant measurement of organic concentrations and product identification liquid, solid, and gas samples.

In November 2013, Kett lauched the BSS1700, a new composition analyzer that provides rapid product identification and organic concentration measurements in any liquid, solid or gas sample. The BSS1700 is the latest in instrument innovation from Kett, a leader in moisture meters, organic composition meters, rice, grain and seed measurement for more than 65 years. Designed in partnership with Beat Sensing Company (Shizuoko Japan), the BSS1700 is designed for use in laboratory, near-line process, and online/inline process control applications where quick, accurate determination of the product composition is required. 

This simple-to-use device allows users to measure organic concentrations (moisture, fats, oils, proteins, sugars and more) within a sample. Tests are completed without sample preparation. The BSS1700 includes software to allow the customer to easily develop customized product calibrations and interfaces with industry standard Unscrambler ® software as well as SMA optical accessories.  The integrated touch panel provides a “single footprint” system that can be used in almost any environment.  Outputs are included for network connectivity as well as direct connections to process control systems, allowing measurements made with the BSS1700 to automatically optimize process yields, throughput, and quality levels.  The InGaAs diode array provides cool, stable readings as well as extremely fast measurement cycles with one spectral update each second.  Two versions are available, 900-1700nm and 640-1050nm.

Kett’s BSS1700 builds on the success of the KJT270 desktop composition analyzer, and the wide array of Kett NIR analyzers. These instruments are generally considered to be world class leaders in the category of instant moisture meters and instant organic composition meters.  

Kett continues to stand behind the BSS1700 with a one-year “Total Care” manufacturer's warranty on parts and labor and specification compliance
