NIRS 5000/6500

FOSS feed and forage analyzers, based on the successful NIRSystem II platform, offer fast, reliable and accurate analysis of animal feed, feed ingredients, pet food and forages. Seen by many as the industry standard, they are used throughout the animal feed industry to control and segregate incoming raw material, control consistency in feed production and ensure finished products are in line with the demands of customers and the authorities.


Versatile solutions for feed and forage analysis   
FOSS solutions allow you to analyse a range of animal nutrition samples including whole, fresh and ground samples with no preparation. Cups for handling liquid samples and slurries such as oils, molasses and others are available.   
Greater control for improved processes   
Fast multiple-parameter results allow you to control raw material intake and all critical points in the animal feed production process based on accurate analytical data rather than book values.   
Monitoring and support via the internet   
The RINA software suite supports FOSS NIR instruments. This internet-based network connects individual instruments to a control centre where NIR experts remotely monitor and perform management tasks allowing the local user to carry out routine analysis operations without having to worry about instrument performance or reliability of results.   
Available for visible and NIR range   
FOSS Feed and Forage analyzers are available in two models, model 5000 for the NIR range 1100 to 2500 nm, or model 6500 with two detectors making it possible to measure both visible and the NIR range from 400 to 2500 nm.
