FOSS donates analyzers to Kansas State Department of Grain Science

Two NIRS analyzers will be used for classroom teaching, research

FOSS has donated two near infrared analyzers to Kansas State University's Department of Grain Science and Industry for use in classroom teaching and research.

One of the machines, the Profoss in-line flour analyzer, is installed in the Hal Ross Flour Mill on the University's Grain Science Innovation Campus. The other machine is a NIRS DS2500 flour analyzer that will be used at the mill as well as in the Shellenberger Hall teaching and experimental milling laboratory.

“It is always great to have new technology in the flour mill to enhance our teaching for our students and industry professionals who come to Kansas State for training,” says Mark Fowler, associate director and flour milling curricula manager for the International Grains Program.
