Ethanol Production

Ethanol production is a complex biological process. Although fermentation is the oldest bio-technological process known, it is still sometimes seen more as an art than a science. PerkinElmer removes the mystery and helps you save time and money by providing you with unique tools that give you the information you need in just a few seconds. Price raw materials correctly, get more consistent fermentation and increase co-product income by optimizing moisture content - all with one analyzer.

Screening Ingredients

We offer a range of products that help ethanol producers determine raw material quality, monitor production as well as verify co-product quality. lThe level of starch or sugar in the raw material is directly correlated to the ethanol yield. Using our NIR instruments you will be able to determine starch, moisture, protein and more at intake - in a few seconds. Use our aflatoxin test strips to keep aflatoxins out of your process and from concentrating in your DDGs.

Analysis of Mycotoxins in Multi-Grain and Corn Cereals

Mycotoxins produced by fungi as toxic secondary metabolites, leave grains, maize and cereals particularly vulnerable. With this in mind, and considering that an estimated 25% of all crops show some signs of mycotoxin contamination, many countries have established regulatory guidelines for maximum mycotoxin limits in not only feed and grain, but also in processed food products.

Corn - DA 7250

Whenever corn is used as a raw material it is important to have fast and full knowledge of its composition and properties. In wet or dry milling, feed milling, ethanol production and other processing, the raw material will affect the process efficiency as well as the quality of the final product. The DA 7250 can accurately determine moisture, protein, oil and starch in corn in 6 seconds without prior sample grinding.

Analysis of Dried Distiller's Grain (DDG) Using DA 7250 Diode Array Based High Speed Analysis System

Analysis of Dried Distiller’s Grain (DDGs) is an important aspect of Ethanol Production and Feed Manufacturing. The composition affects processing of the materials and the profitability of selling & buying this important by-product /ingredient. Ethanol producers can use the real time analysis to monitor and control the process. Monitoring moisturecontent allows operators to optimize the drying process ensuring an acceptable end product while reducing energy usage. Feed plants can use the system to monitor suppliers, optimize formulation, and for cost control of ingredients. The Diode Array 7250 can analyze DDGs for the aforementioned constituents. The large spot size and analysis area remove the effects of sample heterogeneity thereby producing more reliable and representative results. The speed allows users to easily and accurately analyze many samples a day in nearly real-timewith no sample prep or clean-up.
