Automatic grain analysis with BITZER laboratory machines

Due to the ongoing consolidation in the agricultural sector, large, high-performance locations are increasingly being created, while many small grain receiving points are being closed. This means that at the remaining or newly created locations, a higher capacity is required in the acceptance of grain. In addition to these increased requirements, the general shortage of skilled workers is also noticeable in agricultural businesses, so that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find and keep qualified and reliable personnel.

With the BITZER laboratory machines, we provide grain measuring devices that have different levels of automation help to check the quality of the grain reliably, quickly and transparently. This is how the quick analysis succeeds as a prerequisite for a quality-related storage. This in turn is decisive for the economic further marketing as well as the requirements of quality management regarding the traceability of food (EU regulation 178/2002).

Modular structure for the grain laboratory

The BITZER laboratory machines have a modular design, so that the entry-level BITZER Impurity Machine can be expanded to the BITZER Automatic Sample Analyser.

The Impurity Machine consists of a sample cleaner and legal for trade scales so that the values ​​for good grain, sorted goods and unusable waste are automatically determined within one process. This leads to an acceleration of stocking analysis for an effective gross acceptance.

The sample scales integrated in the Impurity machine are controlled via the central weighing indicator.  The sample is cleaned using a built-in sample cleaner.

The results are displayed in plain text in absolute terms and as a percentage on the central control unit. Optionally, the printout on a self-adhesive reference sample label is possible.

The systematic process leads to significant time savings, prevents operating errors and thus increases efficiency and safety in laboratory work, which can now also be carried out without specialist staff. Dust and noise protection measures also lead to a significantly cleaner and quieter laboratory atmosphere.

Further automation with BITZER Automatic Sample Analyser

The BITZER Automatic Sample Analyser consists of a sample cleaner equipped with a two-scale system. In addition, a whole grain analysis device is connected to the system, which is controlled via a central control unit on an integrated touch screen.

All determined data, such as small grain (sorted goods), impurities and the quality values of the whole grain determiner, such as moisture, protein, sedimentation et al. are stored in a central database and assigned to the respective process. In addition, after the end of the analysis process, the system prints a self-adhesive label that contains all the data determined and can be stuck on the bag with the reference sample.

to BITZER Web Agrar weighing software or to third-party systems (optional)

Thanks to the option of connecting to the BITZER Web Agrar weighing software, an automatic printout of the delivery note including all weighing data (determined via truck scales of the continuous scales) and the quality values can be created. Due to numerous interfaces to various merchandise management systems, such as SAP, AMIC, L3 etc., the data exchange with higher-level ERP systems is easy to carry out. Of course, the BITZER Automatic Sample Analyser can also be connected to third-party systems using a standardized XML interface or operated as a stand-alone device without a direct connection.

Advantages of BITZER Automatic Sample Analyser

  • Complete laboratory automation for quick analysis with integrated sample cleaner SLN and whole grain analyzer
  • Time saving by a factor of 3
  • Automatic process of impurity analysis and quality analysis, merging of all values ​​in one database
  • Printout of label for the reference sample
  • Integration of further laboratory devices such as falling number determiners (optional)
  • Connection to BITZER Web Agrar weighing software or to third-party systems (optional)

For the large locations: expansion with a second impurity line

By adding a second impurity line to the automatic sampler, two different types of grain can be analysed at the same time. A time-consuming manual screen change, which is necessary for different types of grain, is no longer necessary. An additional sample cleaner is installed in a dust and noise protection cabinet and equipped with a 2-scale system and connected to the central automatic sample control. This form of expansion is particularly suitable for high intake rates and during the peak harvest season.

Laboratory automation for seasonal rental

Depending on your request and availability, we will also be happy to rent our laboratory machines during the harvest season. This gives you the opportunity to test the devices extensively. This is also worthwhile from an economic point of view: if you decide to buy the device at a later date, rental payments already made will be credited.

In order to ensure the high availability of your Impurity machine or Automatic Sample Analyser, including the connected devices, and to avoid downtime, we offer you the conclusion of a maintenance contract. The maintenance contract includes the annual inspection of the entire system, including sample cleaners and scales. In addition, the data transmission from the whole grain device is tested and the grain feed into the whole grain device is checked. The connected peripheral devices such as printers, scanners and displays are also maintained. In addition, the current software update is imported.

Our grain laboratory service also offers full service for many commercial grain devices.
