Luminar 3030 Free Space Analyzer


The Luminar 3030 Free Space analyzer is a rugged AOTF-NIR spectrometer that can be inserted directly into the production line. As such, the Luminar 3030 eliminates the need for fiber optic lines.

Ideal for inline, real-time analysis, monitoring and control. The Luminar 3030 analyzer can identify the organic chemical composition, actives, starch and moisture content in a variety of products, including solids, pellets, powder and suspensions.

Ideal for spray dryer analysis of moisture compositions and particle size. For instance caffeine in decaffeinated coffee, or fat, protein, and lactose in milk powder.
