Video: Automated SRC analyzer for the baking and milling industries

14 September 2021

KPM Analytics has unveiled its new Solvent Retention Capacity (SRC)-CHOPIN 2 analyzer for the baking and milling industries. The SRC-CHOPIN 2 allows a user to perform the SRC method automatically versus manually, providing consistent and objective results. Compared with the original SRC-Chopin introduced in 2014, the SRC-Chopin 2 packs significant upgrades in software, electrical and mechanical designs for significantly improved user experience. The system is simpler, more precise and more consistent than the manual method, allowing bakers and millers to make confident assessments regarding their flour quality and final product requirements.

The SRC-CHOPIN 2 is the only instrument available that automates the manual SRC method – supplying Source: KPM AnalyticsSource: KPM Analyticsdata that is 30% more repeatable with a process that is 50% more reproducible than the manual method – ultimately minimizing the impact of operator error. As bakers and millers look to optimize their process for inspecting incoming sources of flour, the SRC method is critical for standardization of raw material coming into their respective facilities, across suppliers and locations.

The manual SRC method is laborious and time-consuming, requiring lab technicians to be trained to perform multiple steps during the analysis. With the SRC-CHOPIN 2, training required to run the analyzer is minimal, and after set-up, the analysis is performed by the instrument, reducing operator engagement and impact of the results. The SRC-CHOPIN 2 is the standardized automated method AACC 56-15.01 and ICC Draft Standard 186, giving users confidence in its proven and trusted scientific analysis.

The new SRC-CHOPIN 2 analyzers will be available starting in October through the global KPM Analytics sales network.
