Active Salt - software package - “Seasonal” Enhancement for Sherwood Scientific’s Model 926 Chloride Analyser

Sherwood Scientific Active Salt software package Looking forward to a good piece of Stilton this Christmas or perhaps some other tasty snacks?
At this time of year many of us over-indulge; choosing to ignore calories and salt intake, etc. 

Food manufacturers, however are obliged not to forget; particularly the Salt content of our food.  For many years Sherwood Scientific's Model 926 Chloride Analyser has been used for salt measurement by food ingredient suppliers and manufacturers throughout the world. 

It is particularly popular with the cheese manufacturing industry.

Briefly; the analysis of cheese salt content, including sample preparation, goes as follows;

Weigh sample; add warm water, macerate to dilute and dissolve salt present, filter, standardise extract volume and finally pipette the extract into the chloride analyser's beaker and press titrate.

The displayed result, with sample weight and diluent volume, are used to calculate salt content

Sherwood Scientific's Active Salt software package was developed with Cheese Industry suppliers to simplify that process.  Using RS232 output from the Model 926 Chloride Analyser and also a weighing balance; data is transferred without manual transcription.  Salt content calculation is automatically performed to generate results and a final report.  The software offers improved efficiency and reduction of errors.  It also allows setting of upper and lower limits for salt content of a given product line.  Samples with results outside the limits are instantly highlighted, allowing corrective action and ensuring your cheese's seasonal perfection. 

Active Salt may be used to simplify the salt content calculation for other foods and food ingredients
