Welcome to REFLECTRONICS

img-welcomeReflectronics, Inc. was formed in 1993 to commercialize a patented cutting time control technology that used optical fibers to measure the changes in light backscatter during the coagulation process. The CoAguLite Cutting Time Control Technology replicates the cheesemaker’s selection of cutting time. The performance consistency of the technology results from the use of the latest optical technology, a robust sensor design, and employment of fundamental principles of chemical reaction kinetics. The system consists of the CoAguLite sensor, prediction algorithm, and computer.

Optical Sensors from Reflectronics

CoAguLite – The CoAguLite Cutting Time Control Technology was introduced in 1993 to commercialize an optical technology for automating the cutting time selection in cheese making. The performance consistency of the technology results from the use of the latest optical technology, a robust sensor design, and employment of fundamental principles of chemical reaction kinetics.

FiberView™ DWS – The FiberView Dairy Waste Sensor measures solids concentration in dairy plant effluents in the range of 0 to 1% solids (or higher). An implemented system reduces the Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and sewage costs from improved operations practice as well as monitoring process operations.

NEW! FluorLite™ CoAguLab – The FluorLite CoAguLab is a laboratory system specifically designed to provide excellent temperature control for accurate determination of the milk-clotting activity of rennet in compliance with the IDF and ISO standards. It incorporates two optical signals: an infrared light backscatter and tryptophan fluorescence.

NEW! FluorLite™ Protein – The FluorLite sensor is measures tryptophan fluorescence using a front face fluorescence configuration. It uses UV LED (280 nm) technology to excite the amino acid tryptophan in proteins and measures the resulting fluorescence between about 300 and 475 nm. The target application is the monitoring and detection of the “true” protein in whey permeate in cheese processing. Other applications are being investigated.

NEW! FluorLite™ Milk Coagulation – The FluorLite Cutting Time Control Technology responds during the last phase of milk coagulation – the gel-firming stage and provides more consistent cutting time control than any other technology because the time-parameter derived during the gel-firming stage is very close to the coagulation endpoint, thus, increasing the accuracy of endpoint selection.
