IRP Food

IRP Food 
is a new intelligent INFRARED sensor, dedicated to food industry, specially developed for moisture measurement on fat, protein and collagen on food industry products segment.

IRP Food allows manufacturers on food industry sectors to measure physical-chemical constituents profile in real-time, simply with accuracy and reliability.

IRP Food optimizes food industry processes and enables a better transformation quality from the manufacturing of food products or from the reception of raw material.

IRP Food is based on 20 years of acquired experience in industrial online measurement and in the infrared development of test and measurement devices by EDIT Company.

IRP Food uses as a consequence, the latest infrared technologies by combining several wavelength of maximum absorption of the water molecule, to free itself at best from limits of the NIR technology and to ensure the better accuracy of measurement, whatever the process and product variations to measure

IRP Food consists of optical, mechanical and electronic parts, specially designed to work on food industries process.

IRP Food is an ideal measurement device for the improvement of profitability and for the quality control of Food industries.

  • 100% dedicated to food industry
  • In line moisture measurement
  • Continuous measurement system
  • Real-time measurement
  • Contact free measurement
  • Strong and adapted to rugged environments
  • Easy to install
  • Easy to use
  • Autonomous system


NIR measuring principle

IRP food is equipped with interferential filters that select several wavelengths corresponding to the water molecules absorption NIR peaks.

A continuous light source with wide spectral band irradiates the sample to measure. A part of this radiation is backscattered and concentrated by a spherical mirror on the sensor.

The flow recovered is correlated with the product concentration that we want to measure and also with the absorbed light.

Then, data are processed and a calibration is created to read directly the moisture measurement.
