  • Independent particle characterization services for food and beverage industries

    PTL`s service to the food and beverage industry is consultative and exacting. Manufacturers need to identify and control particle size distribution and other physical properties of food powders and emulsions in order to control the quality of the food_beverage_particle_testing_analysisfinished product. Factors such as appearance, taste, “mouth feel”, processing and handling are all affected by physical characteristics including particle size, particle shape, surface area, thermal properties, powder flowability, and for emulsions, zeta potential.

  • Pollen Control

    Many plants will produce abundant quantities of very lightweight pollen grains. Transfer of grains or pollination is generally mediated by the wind, which is a requirement for any healthy indoor garden. When it lands on a compatible pistil or female cone, it germinates, producing a seed. This is an undesirable process when farming certain crops. Pollination control is one of the major concerns of gardeners as it can affect the final outcome of different types of crops.Pollination occurs when pollen from the male plant reaches the female stigmas and finds its way to the egg cell of the female plant that is inside the pistil. After the process of pollination, the seed is produced. To ensure pollen is effectively controlled, AgriAir equipment will destroy airborne contaminants finer than even the smallest grains. AgriAir machines are capable of destroying up to 99.99% of airborne pollen through our process of photo hydro ionization.

  • Data analysis and visualization tools for agriculture

    Given the large areas and relatively shallow soil depths associated with agriculture, the industry standard has long been two-dimensional analysis. However, over the past decades many of C Tech’s customers have discovered the advantages of analyzing and understanding soil properties on a true 3D volumetric basis. Nutrient concentrations, plant available water and stratigraphy are examples of data which are best addressed on a volumetric basis.

  • Fertilizers boosting soil productivity for agriculture sector

    The principle fertilisers used to boost soil productivity are phosphate based. Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) and Diammonium phosphate (DAP) are used for their ability to deliver Nitrogen and Phosphorus (both macronutrients) to soil as solid fertilisers. Phosphate rock is the raw material for production and is extracted from large deposits across Florida, the Southern Mediterranean into the Middle East (namely Morocco and Saudi Arabia) and on into Russia and China. To this rock, sulfuric acid is added producing phosphoric acid. This acid is then reacted with ammonia and elemental sulfur producing a sulfur enhanced fertiliser. During this process, the dust produced can potentially reach explosive levels.

  • Measuring Ion Concentrations in Plant Tissue

    Measuring Ion Concentrations in Plant Tissue

    Required Apparatus:

    • Aptisens Digital or Mobile Multiple Ion Kit
    • Weighing scales
    • Liquid measurement device e.g. graduated cylinder
    • Bowl for stirring
    • Spoon for stirring
    • Funnel
    • Filter paper / muslin
    • Conical flask / vessel

    Required chemicals:

    • Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution
    • Aptisens Plant Tissue multiple ion calibration solutions
    • Deionised water

    Sample Preparation:
    This preparation can be applied to any plant tissue. Take a sample of lettuce and remove any soil but do not wash the plant tissue as doing so may reduce the number of ions in sample. Weigh this sample and record (say 100 g). Macerate the plant tissue in a blender and add a known amount of hot deionised water to the sample to extract the nutrients. For example, dilute the sample two-fold (200 mL), three-fold (300 mL) or five-fold (500 mL). Ensure all the plant tissue is covered with water and leave to sit for approximately 30 min with some stirring. The sample then needs to be filtered.

    Set up a funnel with folded filter paper in a conical flask or any vessel that can hold a funnel. Pour the plant tissue and water into the funnel and allow the mixture to filter. Collect the filtrate.

    Calibration:
    Before use the multiple ion probe must be conditioned in Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution. Ensure the correct calibration solutions for a three-point calibration are set up on the Mobile meter or MeterLink. Follow the instructions for calibration and proceed to take a sample reading when the calibration data is ‘very good’ or ‘good’ for all ions.

    Sample Reading:
    Place the probe in the plant tissue filtrate and ‘Take a Sample’ reading. The concentrations for each ion will be displayed in ppm or mmol / L.

    Remember to multiply these concentrations by the dilution factor.

    Probe Care:
    After taking your reading be sure to remove the sensors from the solution as quickly as possible, rinse with deionised water and replace the cap of the probe

  • Measurement of oil and water in seeds for agriculture sector

    The breeding, cultivation and processing of seeds to obtain vegetable oil is a major global industry. The amount of oil in seeds and water in seeds are critical parameters which need to be understood at all stages of the industry from plant breeding through commercial agriculture to milling and processing. Oils derived in this manner are used in foodstuffs, the manufacture of biofuels and as a chemical feedstock for many products. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC instrument provides an extremely fast, simple-to-operate answer to the question “how much oil and water is present in my seeds?`

  • Water Disinfection for the Poultry Industry

    Healthier animals, higher income, significantly lower use of drugs and disinfectants Up until now, REDO units have primarily been applied on chicken breeding farms, as well as in the milk production, for the disinfecting of stables and for supplying the animals with water. The REDO disinfecting solution has a long term depot effect on the animal drinking water, which on the average maintains the water germ-free longer. Germ-free water is an indispensable basic element, during various production phases in the processing and generating of food and agricultural products. Whether in the dairy industry, chicken breeding or in the meat and egg production, the performance indicators are determined through the health status of the animals,for which germ-free water is a basic requirement. REDO has proven its efficiency in water treatment in these industries world-wide, even under difficult conditions, and contributes to a constant production increase for its customers.

  • Greenhouse Energy Management

    Why regulating your energy consumption is important A growth climate with the proper ratio of light, warmth and CO2 dosage ensures high production and quality. The most important sustainable source of growing light and warmth for your crop process, the sun, is not always sufficiently available. That’s why supplemental energy must be used. However, fossil energy sources, such as natural gas and petroleum are becoming ever scarcer and more expensive and they burden the environment. Efficient management of energy processes and CO2 dosage, therefore, are necessary for sustainable production and for your company profit.
