HYDRA FOR LABORATORY

EYE MASTERPIECE

Hydra for laboratory is an innovative UV-VIS spectrometer designed for food processing. This device is able to analyze the quality of any type of raw materials (soy, beans, legumes, seeds, oat, algae, barley, coffee, tomatoes, etc.) and the status of production processes, identifying differences and wrong settings.

Hydra can be seen as a smart eye able to:

  • produce important information related to the quality of the raw materials and the status of the production process;
  • inspect the composition of food and beverages by identifying proteins and other parameters;
  • validate in real time the quality of the product on each step of the plant’s process.

It is a masterpiece of spectrometry and Industry 4.0.

PRODUCTION PROCESS

With the help of Hydra, it is possible to evaluate and buy raw materials in an objective way. As a result, the client will always obtain an high quality finished product.

Is your production process stable? Does it always proces raw materials in the same way?

Hydra for laboratory will help to answer these questions and understand if there are changes in semi-finished goods.

CHARACTERISTICS

Speed & Power

It uses 5 light sources and performes several analysis in few seconds. Its sensitivity is so high you can identify every minimum change in the spectrum. It reached the 2 nm resolution of the spectrum.

Total Control

It is possible to totally control Hydra’s hardware by software: exposure, light intensity, comparison function, number of points, etc. The customer is able to build himself the most suitable spectral analysis for his production process.

Space Colors

Examining the UV-VIS spectrum in different color spaces means being able to observe a minimal variation in the spectrum under different sight points: sRGB, CIE XYZ, CIE Lab, Hunter Lab, CIE Luv, HSL, and many others.

Infinite Customization

A part of Hydra for laboratory is 3D printed, so the customer can print his own parts to replace them, to increase the precision or to create a diffraction mask for LAV, MAV, and SAV.

APPLICATIONS

RAW MATERIALS

With Hydra, it is possible to carry out a real time analysis of the raw materials before being processed in the production plant.

This allows the plant to discard the raw materials that do not respect the requirements, consenting the plant to avoid the contamination of other batches of food.

For example, Hydra could analyze the parameters of food in bio, gluten and lactose free plants both before and after , in order to grant a 100% pure final product.This eventually results in a money saving.

ONLINE

Hydra can be installed online to control the status of the production process, identifying wrong machine settings or external agents that can cause an out-of-standard production.

Thanks to its innovative technology, Hydra can also intervene in the production process, modifying the wrong settings by adjusting them on the standards imposed by the plant (for example, the amount of proteins of the final products).

This allows the plant to always produce a high quality product, increasing food safety and stabilizing its production process.

INDEXES AND ERRORS

The software allows the client to compare two or more spectra simultaneously. It also determines the CSC index (Caronte Space Color).

This index will explain where the differences are concentrated in the spectrum.

The software is also equipped with a set of indexes explaining the color differences between the spectra (i.e. CIE76, CIE94, CIEDE2000, etc.) However, it is possible to integrate it with customed formulas.

ADVANTAGES

Hydra’s advantages are countless, as they depend on its applications (raw materials/online).

Hydra helps the plant to increase food quality and security. It is also possible to save on food, water and energy. This happens thanks to a time-continuous analysis, which brings a stabilization of the production process and, consequently, a reduction of food and water wastes. In addition, by setting machines to work always on the same production standard, Hydra brings the plant a great energy saving.
