MCT466 QuikCheck is a reliable
and sturdy at-line, NIR Tester for use in harsh manufacturing
environments. The MCT466 QuikCheck is routinely used to measure
moisture in samples taken from the production line. However,
other measurements can be made, including oils, protein, film
thickness, coating weights, nicotine and sugars.
The Near Infrared (NIR) Operating
Shining light at specific NIR wavelengths causes common
molecular bonds to vibrate and absorb energy. By comparing
the absorbed energy at “measured” wavelengths
to non-absorbing “reference” wavelengths, the
MCT466 QuikCheck can accurately and repeatably measure moisture,
oils, fats and other parameters based on the samples’
The O-H bond of water (H-O-H) vibrates at 1.94m and 1.43m.
The H-C bond of organic hydrocarbons and oil vibrates at 2.34m
and 1.72m. The appropriate overtone wavelengths are selected
based on concentration levels of the component to be measured.
