ProxiMate NIR Instrument


Optimized Analysis for the Food & Feed Industry

Buchi ProxiMate NIR Instrument

ProxiMate, a NIR instrument for the harshest environments, is designed for the food and feed industry. The compact system can be operated anywhere by anyone thanks to a simple interface and pre-calibration packages that ensure speed and quality.

Ingress protection: IP69
Sample presentation: Up & Down
Wavelength: NIR + VIS

Extreme robustness

ProxiMate is designed to work effectively in the most adverse conditions. Measurements are unaffected by temperature or humidity fluctuations. The instrument can be placed where results matter: right next to the production line. With IP69 ingress protection, ProxiMate can be pressure-hosed down to meet even the most stringent hygiene standards.

Simple operation

Easily operate ProxiMate, a NIR instrument for the harshest environments, via an intuitive, modern touchscreen interface. The touchscreen follows the proven interface logic of BUCHI products, so anyone can easily set up applications, test samples or set preferences.

Applicative fit

BUCHI application chemists have developed many ready-to-use pre-calibrations for the main food and feed industries. Whether you are analyzing cheese, milk powder or minced meat, you can effortlessly set ProxiMate up to get accurate results, regardless of your level of expertise.

Flux™ Link NIR

Greater levels of functionality for BUCHI ProxiMate™ NIR instruments are enabled with the release of the new cloud hosted and web browser-based Flux™ Console.

IP69 certification and Hygienic Design

ProxiMate can be pressure-hosed down using the same procedures as other at-line equipment or machinery. The instrument is completely dust and waterproof and can resist detergents commonly used for sanitation in food production areas. ProxiMate has been assessed and endorsed by HALAG, the food hygiene agency, as complying with guidelines concerning Hygienic design.

Up & Down View

Sample type variety can require different analytical approaches for optimum performance or practicality. ProxiMate allows you to capitalize on the best approach by allowing measurement from the top of the sample (down view) or from the bottom (up-view).

Instrument Standardization

All ProxiMates are factory standardized. Calibrations copied between instruments work in exactly the same way. This is particularly important if multiple instruments are used in the same facility or in different factories producing the same product. Instrument standardization leads to improved product consistency irrespective of the location of manufacture.
