  • Down and Up View: Sample type variety can require different analytical approaches for optimum performance or practicality. ProxiMate allows you to capitalise on the best approach by allowing measurement from the top (down view) or from the bottom (up view)
  • Magnetic Drive: Samples are rotated using a magnetically coupled drive unit. When the analysis is complete, this is removed to facilitate easy cleaning
  • Glass Free Environment: Many production environments prohibit the use of glass. ProxiMate offers the option of using plastic petri-dishes in down view mode. Using this mode, the type of plastic of the sample container will not affect the measurement.
  • Sample Type Flexibility: Getting the sample presentation right is key for accurate measurements. To reduce sampling error, larger sample volumes are needed when samples are inhomogeneous. Smaller samples are preferred when samples are valuable. ProxiMate offers options to cover all preferences.
  • Visible Detector Option: ProxiMare allows users to maximize their measurement performance by capitalising on NIR only, visible only or by combining both visible and NIR signals to improve measurement performance and evaluate samples fully.

Buchi ProxiMate is a robust, compact and easy to use at-line NIR instrument for the food and feed industry. It reduces downtime in production and provides fast quality control of batch samples. The intuitive user interface allows operation by everybody and a wide selection of pre-calibration packages make it suitable for all applications. Whether you are analyzing cheese, milk powder or minced meat: Setting ProxiMate up to get accurate results requires minimal effort and can be done by everybody.

Extreme Robustness: waterproof, stainless steel housing

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 IP 66 ingress protection ProxiMate can be pressure-hosed down to meet even the most stringent hygiene standards.

Simple operation: with the intuitive touch- screen user interface

Thanks to the intuitive, modern touchscreen interface, ProxiMate operation has been optimized to make it logical, easy and straight- forward. The touchscreen follows the proven interface logic of other BUCHI products, making it easy for everybody to set up applications, test samples or set preferences.
