Enhancement for Sherwood Scientific

Active Salt Software PackageFor many years Sherwood Scientific's Model 926 Chloride Analyser has been used for salt measurement by food ingredient suppliers and manufacturers throughout the world.  The 926 offers many benefits over other methods for Chloride determination.  Simplicity, speed, and accuracy, are all important and well established features and increasingly cost per test and cost of post-process waste disposal are all helping to cement the Model 926's reputation as an industry leader.

The Model 926 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.  The Active Salt software package has recently been updated to allow two Model 926 Chloride analysers to be connected to one PC running two instances of Active Salt software; a real advantage for major food processing facilities with high sample throughput and a wide diversity of product lines to quality control.

The New Active Salt Package will be on show for the first time at the Achema Exhibition in Frankfurt which runs from 18th to 22nd June; visit the Sherwood Scientific Stand G38 in Hall 4.2.

Active Salt may be used to simplify the salt content calculation for other foods and food ingredients for further information click here or email
