Why measure Volume, Density and Product Dimensions using a VolScan Profiler?

Not only is Volume critical to bakery products, but it is also an important physical property of agricultural products, meats and packaging.

Agricultural products have the characteristic of being ‘low value added’ when compared with other industrial commodities. As a result, the application of state-of-the-art technology to the agricultural sector has been slow; it is only in relatively recent times that various up-to-date techniques have reached the point of practical implementation.

Previous volume methods may have involved simple water displacement; however, this method produces one volume value which is usually manually recorded and thereby attracts operator inaccuracy with no data archiving system for future retrieval. Fluid displacement techniques are also unsuitable for porous materials.

The VolScan Profiler is a non-contact laser-based measurement that is not affected by sample porosity. It can also measure so much more than a single Volume number, giving you valuable information to help you bring more dimensionally controlled products to the market whatever the test sample.

Why measure one value when within the same time the VolScan Profiler can provide you with an additional 19 automatic measurements?
