Potato Analyzer

The Unity Potato Analyzer is a ready to use complete solution for analyzing potato products in a potato processing plant.

Variety, growing and storage conditions all affect the condition and quality of potatoes used for potato products.  Identifying out of specification lots and optimizing the processing according to natural product variations are key to producing consistent quality end-products. 


The Potato analyzer is ideal for analyzing samples at various stages in the potato processing plant including:

  • Incoming raw potato testing for moisture and quality
  • Monitoring of moisture levels in cook and processing steps
  • Monitoring and controlling coatings and fat content
  • Monitoring oil quality
  • Verifying production batch values against targets

The Unity Scientific Potato Analyzer is based on the SpectraStar XT, the next generation high performance NIR analyzer based on the TRUE ALIGNMENT® Spectroscopy technology. The SpectraStar XT incorporates a rotating top window (RTW) system for the ultimate in sampling flexibility, allowing the customer to make measurements of all potato and in-process samples. The SpectraStar XT’s quick analysis time provides real-time feedback that allows the process to be controlled, optimizing the process and providing rapid payback  Constituents predicted include moisture and other quality measurements on incoming and in-process potatoes as well as fat in batter coatings and FFAs and other quality measurements on frying oils.


Unity Processed Potato calibrations are included with the Unity Potato Analyzer, along with free calibration support for the first year to ensure that the calibrations are matched and accurate for your particular products.


Qualifying incoming ingredients and monitoring in-process samples will increase production efficiency, reduce rework and waste and increase profits.
