In-line Sensor and System for Obtaining the Fat Content of Milk
The invention relates to an in-line sensor and a system for obtaining the fat content of milk, respectively: a hollow device similar to any pipe through which the milk can flow and provided with a light-transparent hole and a plate located at a short distance from, and parallel to said hole, such that milk always occupies all of the section extending from the hole to the plate; and a system capable of producing the corresponding excitation light in near infrared or the visible, below 1000 nm, and of collecting the light reflected by the milk. The fat content can be obtained at all times by applying a quadratic or simple linear calculation and is provided by means of an analog or digital signal. Control actions can also be supplied using digital outputs. The invention is suitable for use in milk production facilities.
