  • Drying of high-quality agricultural products

    The stationary agricultural dryer AgroDry® used for drying high-quality agricultural products is an efficient drying system for agriculture and contractors. The modern discharge technologies generate rates constant product moisture. Because of the circulating air and heat recovery optimum energy saving is possible. For the production of the stationary agricultural dryer AgroDry® only high-grade aluminum is used, which makes both indoor and outdoor installation possible. In addition, the aluminum alloy allows a long lifetime of the dryer. There are more than 3.500 stationary STELA dryer all over the world.

  • How to Make Fruit Leather by Tray Drying Oven

    Fruit leathers are restructured fruit made from fresh fruit pulp or a mixture of fruit juice concentrates and other ingredients after a complex operation that involves a dehydration step. Dehydration of fruit leather is a process which involves simultaneous heat and mass transfer. Various methods of drying and drying conditions affecting quality of fruit leathers have been previously studied. Traditional sun drying allows the production of fruit leather with a live color and translucent appearance. However, the drying time is long and dependent on environmental contamination. Today, conventional hot-air drying process is still the more common technology which has been used for making fruit leathers with a better color and flavor. And researches on hot air drying processes of popular fruit leathers are as follows. Link: http://fooddryingoven.com/drying_ideas/making-fruit-leather-bar-by-tray-dryer.html

  • Breeding

    It all start with breeders. The development of new cultivars is perhaps the most important means of improving quality traits and yields, and dramatic improvements have been achieved in the “green revolution”.

    Extensive testing and analysis is a key factor of success when selecting and evaluating new varieties, and Perten Instruments has worked with breeding companies for many years. The fact that the speed and quality of analysis is important for the development time and the quality of new line development has been a cornerstone in our product development.

    Our products and solutions give breeders unique opportunities to bring new, innovative cultivars to the market.

  • Plant Breeding Research

    Biotechnology utilizes transgenic manipulation to change the genetic make-up of plants. Plant breeding is conducted world-wide for a variety of reasons, including improvement of nutritional value, economic opportunity, and environmental adaptation and preservation. Today, international development organizations assert that genetically engineered crops are an important factor in ensuring global health and food security, while simultaneously benefiting farmers, producers, and food manufacturing companies. As such, scientists have developed new higher-yielding varieties that are not only resistant to pests and diseases, but also drought-resistant, or easily adapted to different regional environments and growing conditions

    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?`

    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.
