SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO – The ultimate solution for Grain Testing
Assuring grain quality from field to factory
ZEUTEC presents a new generation of the SpectraAlyzer GRAIN – the SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO with new features, state-of-the-art design, better performance and with the aim of bringing a new perspective to grain testing.
The SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO is built to provide Grain quality assessment and assurance to farmers, traders and processors.
The SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO is your ideal solution to obtain the measurement of moisture, protein, fat/oil, ash and other quality parameters in Grains, Cereals, Oilseeds and Flour. A greater variety of material can be handled with the all-new screw conveyor for sample feeding and automatic discharge. There is no need for grinding or other sample preparation at all, with an increased optical path-length, for a multitude of whole grain and oilseeds. Enabling Dynamic Subsampling allows for quicker analysis of samples, with results being generated in under 45 seconds. This functionality automates the decision-making process of determining the number of subsamples to analyze and when to display results, based on the outcomes of the analyzed subsamples.
In order to analyze powder samples, e.g. wheat flour, an optional Flour Module is available as an additional accessory. Each grain analyzer can be (retro) – fitted with a test weight module (aka Bushel weight, hectoliter weight, or specific weight) to determine the volume to weight ratio of the samples analyzed.
The SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO offers an improved UI experience with an array of new features and functions. The instrument is controlled with an intuitive icon driven software using a PCAP glass touch and color TFT display with 1280×800 pixel. With a screen size of 12.1” and high luminance the touch operation and data visualization is optimized. The routine operation of the analysis process can be automated with cloud connectivity features. Results obtained can be directly linked to ERP systems eliminating the need of manual data handling and archiving. The SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO uses a Silicon detector for detecting the diﬀusely transmitted light emanating from the sample chamber.
All this making the SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO the ideal choice for fast and accurate whole grain testing.

How it works
The SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO is an all grain analyser and quality check instrument designed for the analysis of solid bulk materials in diffuse transmittance.
The SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO – All grain analyser and quality check instrument, is shipped with pre-installed standard calibration models for many products, parameters, and countries where typical applications are:
- Wheat, durum wheat, rice, barley, mustard, sesame, corn, soy, groundnut, malt, green malt, rye, oats, triticale, sorghum/milo, lentils, beans, green and chick peas and others.
- Wheat and rye flour, semolina, ground wheat, rice meal and flour, soy meal, corn meal and flour and others.
- Soybean, canola/rapeseed, sunflower, mustard, groundnut and others. All calibrations provide accurate analytical values and are 100 % transferrable between instruments!

Flour testing with Flour cuvette
To examine powdered samples, like wheat flour, you can use the Flour Module as an extra accessory. This module includes a cuvette that is placed in the measurement chamber and moved by a stepper motor drive. By testing the flour at various positions within the cuvette, you can analyze bigger proportions of the flour sample. Additionally, the Flour Module can be set to different pathlengths, allowing for the testing of various flour and ground product samples.

Test weight module
You can equip each SpectraAlyzer GRAIN NEO grain analyzer with a test weight module (also known as Bushel weight, hectoliter weight, or specific weight) to determine the volume-to-weight ratio of analyzed samples, at any time. The results obtained using this module comply to those obtained from a quarter-liter reference tester. The test weight module can be easily retrofitted by the user.
