Bakery Cafes are profitable business - A survey

Bakery Cafe s have reported spectacular growth in  recent  economic slowdown .Manufacturing has been hit by the cost escalation how ever  the bakery cafes  are in expansion mode . A recent survey by  Technomic tells us all.

According to Technomic’s new study, the 2009 Technomic Top 25 Bakery Cafe Chains Restaurant Report, system-wide sales for the bakery-café industry grew 12 percent in 2008 to $4.5 billion, led by Panera Bread, Einstein Bros. Bagels and Au Bon Pain, with $2.6 billion, $393 million and $307 million respectively.




"The consumer trade-down from full-service to limited-service formats that solidified through 2008 and into 2009 allowed fast-casual bakery cafes to truly shine," said Darren Tristano, executive vice president at Technomic. "The appeal of moderately priced, high-quality menu offerings served in contemporary ambiance, as well as consumer perception of value for this format, has more than likely strengthened over the past year."



Among the trends, products, and findings included in the report:



Health and nutrition: Einstein Bros. Bagels' Lighter Fare Menus.

Expansion of breakfast offerings: Atlanta Bread Company, Corner Bakery Café, and Panera Bread.

Revamped catering programs: Au Bon Pain's Hot Lunch line.

Packaging Cost Reduction - Few Ideas from Hormel Foods


Austin, Minn. Dec. 3 - Following its reduction of 5.2 million pounds of product packaging in 2008, Hormel Foods Corporation is proud to announce the results of several new packaging projects.
“Our new initiatives build on about 40 packaging reduction projects completed in 2008 and reflect the way we continuously look for means to improve the packaging of our products and reduce our environmental footprint,” said Daniel S. Miller, Research and Development manager of packaging development at Hormel Foods. “In this process, we work with our suppliers to find innovative solutions.”
New packaging reduction highlights and projected savings include:
The elimination of extra room in the Jennie-O Turkey Store® burgers carton is expected to have an annual paperboard savings of more than 175,000 pounds.
Lloyd’s® barbeque tubs no longer have an extra paper sleeve. This modification will eliminate enough solid waste to fill 22 garbage trucks and save more than 660,000 pounds of paper fiber annually.
Reducing the thickness of the glass used to produce each jar of Hormel® bacon bits will produce annual material savings around 411,000 pounds.
Reconfiguration of the shipping box for Hormel® Compleats® microwave meals removed 23 percent of the material required to make the previous corrugated packaging box and generated an annual materials savings of 1.2 million pounds. In addition, changes to the size of the carton flaps of the product and reallocation of materials resulted in annual savings of more than 980 million pounds of solid waste.
Hormel® party trays packaging was redesigned to eliminate the need for shrink wrap to produce an annual savings of approximately 100,000 pounds. The corrugated case to ship the product will be smaller, resulting in a corrugated material savings of more than 174,000 pounds per year.
Redesign of the shipping box for Hormel® pork ribs, butts and bone-in offers more strength while creating an annual corrugated materials savings of about 2.4 million pounds.
Reducing the height, width and length of each box used to ship Hormel® pepperoni, increased the amount of product on each pallet, saving materials and reducing the number of trailers needed each year. The anticipated savings is 188,000 pounds of wood fiber annually and 49,000 pounds of corrugated.
Changes to the shipping of canned food products made by Hormel Foods will result in efficiencies that reduce the number of pallets needed annually by 14,573 and require less plastic and bundling film.
These packaging reduction projects are part of the overall corporate responsibility strategy and goals set by Hormel Foods.

Jacketed Mixers


All Mixers Manufacturers have Mixers with jackets around the mixer body . Operators can feed this jackets with cold or hot water as per requirement . Cold water is circulated through chilling plants .Hot water generally circulated by boilers or hot water generators .


Ingredient Temperature


Dough temperatures get impacted by ingredients temperatures.Ingredients with low temperature can be fed into mixers to maintain dough temperatures . Areas where ambient temperature reached 45 – 40 deg c its important to store this ingredients in cold storages or air conditioned places.


Ice Addition


Some places Ice is added manually to maintain dough temperatures or for certain varieties like choco chips ice is added to maintain the dough temperatures so as chips does not starts melting during the process.

United Biscuits ( UB )presence in International Market

UB International (UBI) drives the marketing and sales of UB’s biscuits and snacks around the world. Well known European brands are increasingly becoming loved internationally and UBI develops markets and availability. This is achieved either through direct representation in these countries or through an authorised distributor.

UBI uses a consumer led approach for key brands in key markets. It aims to meet consumer needs in the three main global snacking trends – health, pleasure and convenience. This consumer focus, combined with excellent products and relevant brand values, has made UBI a growth engine of the UB group.

To further accelerate this growth, UBI is increasing its marketing investment in key markets, in addition to entering into new markets with great potential.

Our key markets

Canada, USA, Sweden, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Middle East, Australia, India and Nigeria.

Our key brands

McVitie’s, Fruit & Form, Carr’s, Delacre and BN

Case study - Nigeria

An good example of UB International is seen in Nigeria. McVitie’s has been a recognised and established brand within Nigeria since the 1980s when it was the number one imported biscuit brand.

A Government embargo on imported biscuits resulted in UB’s biscuits being banned and subsequently sales were lost in the Nigerian market. In order to maintain a presence in this market, UB set up a local co-manufacturing agreement to make biscuits in Nigeria.

UB International is now re-building distribution and expanding production capabilities to develop a range of locally Nigerian produced products to meet consumer demand.

Marketing efforts need to work creatively to take advantage of the opportunities in a developing market. Significant efforts have been put into developing a route to market, including the aptly named “go slow” – an important route to market for FMCG. In the capital, Lagos, constant traffic jams create rolling malls where the “go slow boys” sell products between the cars. Depending on the time of day, drivers are offered different products and McVitie’s Digestive time is mid-morning.

Although there are around 500,000 stores in Nigeria, only 20 of these are supermarkets. The vast majority of stores are small kiosks or simply tabletops. A successful piece of POS designed to adapt to such stores has been the introduction of a hanger, which is used to hang 10 packs of McVitie’s Digestives. This is used extensively and has the added advantage of acting as a hanging billboard for the brand.

In 2008 UB International is expecting sales from Nigeria to be six times more in volume than in 2007.


Case study – Middle East

McVitie’s Digestive is very popular in the Middle East, outperforming the growth of the biscuit category. UB International’s core business in the Middle East comes from McVitie’s Digestive, McVitie’s Digestive Light, McVitie’s Chocolate Digestive and McVitie’ HobNobs. Lead markets are Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and Ub has a very effective operational structure that makes its products available in the entire Gulf.

Revenue in the Middle East region is growing due to new product launches, marketing support and excellent execution of displays in store.

In some areas McVitie’s Light Digestive is out performing McVitie’s Original Digestive. This has encouraged UB International to launch Fruit & Form biscuits to further meet the consumer health trend. The reception by the trade has been so positive that some retailers have positioned the biscuits both with the cereal bars and in the 'health' aisle.

Bakeries adopting ERP system for better operational efficiency


Bakeries small or big units have started adopting new software to get operational efficiencies in their operations through installing ERP software like SAP or BAAN ,ORACLE or local system IMMS( integrated materials management system)

This Enterprise Resource Planning helps these bakeries in maintaining datas which can be utilised for better results . Numerous reports can be generated from this ERP and various master lists are maintained such as Vendors , Creditors , Debtors , Dealers , Transporter, Employee ,Asset , Production units , Recipes , Product mix , Material List etc
SAP has been the most popular of all the software as it has modules for which are helpful in



  • Materials Management

  • Finance Management Module

  • Production Management Module

  • Sales management Module

  • Stores and warehousing Module

  • Maintenance Management Module

  • HR Module

Big Companies have added advantage as all information from different locations can be obtained at a click . Data collected can be utilised for better product mix , cost savings , better production plan with help of MRP runs . ERP software helps in taking decision such as




  • Which location has the most cost advantage

  • Which plant to be loaded

  • What is the best price of raw material and from where to procure from

  • Sales figure

  • ABC analysis

  • Price trends

  • Costing of the product

  • Material Variance vis a vis Standards

  • Plant Break Down Analysis

  • What was the last purchase price of any item

  • Deliveries and vendor analysis.Stock ,Inventory related reports

ERP has become an important tool for senior management to take informed and precise decision.

Air Pollution and emission norms in bakeries


Even though Bakery Industry is a low polluting industry but for the ovens , boilers ,hot water generators ,DG sets they all come under the Air pollution act due to emission of flue gases through stack . Acts prescribes limits on the emission and stack height and in addition to it covers noise pollution with it .Various countries have different values . We would cover Indian Standards.

Bigger plants with more than two or three production line of Bread or Biscuit ovens with six or seven zones can emit considerable amount of flue gases which consists of carbon monoxides, Sulphur Oxides ,Nitrogen oxides which are dangerous for health and if not monitored can result in polluting neighbourhood .

Emission limits and stack parameter as per the Act .CPCB ( Central Pollution Control Board) national air ambient quality
Stack Height = 15meter or more
NOX-50ppm
SOX-80ppm
CO-4mg/cum
SPM-100ppm

Air pollution can be minimised with following steps


  • Use flue gas analyser for stack monitoring in regular intervals

  • Do regular burner maintenance

  • Substitute if possible diesel oil to LPG or Natural Gas

  • Use high pressure monoblock burners

  • Get low sulphur diesel oil

Noise Pollution can be controlled by following steps


Safe limit prescribed in Act is 70 db in night time and 75 db in day time as CPCB standards



  • Monitor noise through decibel meter .

  • DG set room to be to be lined with acoustic lining

  • Maintain equipment with maintenance schedule s

  • Use equipments with enclosure

  • Use screw compressors instead of reciprocating compressor

  • Silencers in stack for DG Sets.

  • Put anti - vibration pad where ever possible for machinery .

United Biscuit buys SSFI in Himachal Pradesh


Finally UB ( United Biscuits ) ,UK has bought a SSFI unit in Himachal Pradesh to launch its product in India . Earlier in my blog I have reported news on United Biscuits moving into India and launching its product . It has been busy with building a team and time has come to translate into manufacturing .UB has got popular brands like McVities Hoola Hoops and Jacobs Cream Cracker .
United biscuit would test launch its product from this facility in first quarter of 2010 . The brands it would go in for world famous Digestive biscuit McVities . The Indian operations is headed by Jayant Kapare . For last year it has been scouting for manufacturing unit and now its has finally taken oven this biscuit manufacturing plant in Himachal Pradesh .
UB would have to face tough competition from already entrenched players like Britannia , Parle and ITC . UB has to work it out a recipe compatible with Indian taste and to market aggressively for brand recall.As history shows that Foreign brands could not make much headway in Indian biscuit market .
Product like Britannia Digestive , Marie Gold , Nutri Choice and ITC s Marie lite would give to tough competition . Indian biscuit market is worth Rs 6000.00 crore and fiercely competitive with dozens of local players apart from the BIG 3 ,namely Cremica , Priya gold , Dukes and Bisk farm.It would be interesting to see how Indian players respond to UB s McVities.

United Biscuits is owned by private global investment firm Blackstone and European private equity firm PAI .

Bakeries all over world have many ways in manufacturing process to reduce energy bills which includes thermal and electrical energy. Apart from the basic production line there are utilities such as Air compressors , Air conditioning ,Refrigeration , Hot water generators , Boilers ,Chillers , Effluent treatment plant , Conveyors ,Generators ,Air washers , Cold Rooms and Lightening .Not only can a bakery reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions, but it can impact its bottom line

Here are few tips and Ideas for energy savings in bakery plant .


Motors

  • Eliminate improper cabling
  • Check alignment
  • Use synchronous motor to improve power factor .
  • Provide proper ventilation .

  • Maintain high power factor as lower power factor reduce s the motor efficiency and
    also reduces the efficiency of electrical distribution .Lower power factor results
    when motors of plant runs below the full load ratings.

Lighting

  • Low wattage lighting s ( CFL )are now available in ratings of 18/20 watts with good lux ratings with retrofit could replace conventional tube lights and bulbs .
  • Occupancy sensor



Air compressor

  • We can save energy by having VFD installed for motor .

  • Screw compressors have far superior performance then other type of compressors

  • Select compressors which have ' motor stop arrangement ' in which motors stops
    on longer unload period.

  • Have cooling arrangement for incoming air .



Air conditioning/Refrigeration

  • Proper insulation of pipes of chilled water ,cu piping for refrigerant can
    results in energy savings.
  • Temperature can be set as per requirement & not going for extremes can
    help in reducing energy consumptions
  • Avoid over sizing select the refrigeration cap as per the load .
  • Consider gas powered refrigeration equipment to minimize the electrical
    load .
  • Connect refrigerated water load in series .

Oven

  • Waste heat generated can be utilized for heating water and pre heat in
    take air . recuperates and heat exchangers can be installed to use
    waste heat from flue gases .
  • Insulation are required for various industrial application such as Ovens.
    Furnaces,heaters,boilers,storage tanks,piping's,steam.chilled water pipelines
    etc .These insulations are made up of mineral wool,silica , alumina and mulite .
    Insulation can save heat losses considerably .While selecting insulation material
    check thermal properties,physical and chemical specifications
    Repair damaged insulation

Pumps

  • Schedule pumps to turn off whenever possible .Putting up level sensors , float
    valves or pressure switches

  • Avoid recirculation through bypass lines

  • Minimize throttling



Cooling Towers



  • Use two speed or variable speed drives for cooling tower fan control if the fans are
    few .Stage the cooling tower fans with on -off control .

  • Turn off unnecessary cooling tower fan s when the load s are reduced.

  • Control cooling tower fans based on leaving water temperatures

  • Periodically clean plugged cooling tower water distribution nozzles



Electrical

  • Provide separate lighting transformer for control of lighting systems.

  • Locate substation near the load centers to minimize energy losses in cables and also improve
    voltage levels.

  • Install capacitors with automatic power factor control panel to maintain a power factor of not less
    than 0.9. Install capacitors near the load points wherever possible or at the sub distribution board.
    The best practical method would be to install capacitors at larger capacity motors and at the
    substation for all other loads.

  • Identify under loaded motors and examine the possibility of replacing them with the appropriate
    capacity motor or alternatively fix retrofitting devices that are available to save energy.

Fuels

Fuel consumption can be reduced by installation of fuel efficient burners .With advent of new technologies one can get fuel efficient burners . For example dual stage high pressure weishaupt burners . Its a monoblock burner with inbuilt blower s in the burner.
Other important factors of combustion is air -fuel ratio . All manufacturers of burner provides exact ration of air fuel .
Regular maintenance of burners also helps in reducing  fuel consumption .

Food grade lubricants for bakery plants

food  grade lubricants   , food grade lubricant , food grade oil and lubricant
Large bakery plants which are highly automated uses conveyors , material handling equipments and conveyors . Chain drives are frequently used in bakery plants for rollers , conveyors , band drives , blowers and chain for trays , bearings for rotating equipments .These equipments are always in contact with food raw or finished . Chances are there when they can contaminate the food items with lubricant if not done properly. To avoid this problem one can put food grade lubricant instead of conventional non- food grade lubricant or oil. Equipments were we can expect a food contact are mixers , molders , dividers , oven , packing machines and accessories like oil spray , milk spray ,flour sifters , screw conveyors , sugar grinders and biscuit grinders .spreading units , conches mixers ,laminators , depositors and gauge rolls. Compressed air does carry lubricating oil with it .special filters are attached at the output of the compressor to trap this oil. Oil free compressor are available but a bit costlier than normal compressor. Seals and gaskets generates leaks and spillages of lubricants .

These equipments need lubrication in intervals for smooth running and proper functioning of machines .Now due to new technology in lubrication and oil industry we can get food grade lubricants . Here in Indian bakery plants it is still to be popular . There are some misconception about food grade lubricants .

A lubricant qualifies as food grade when, in the event of a contamination, it is present in no more than 10 mg per kg of the foodstuff in question and must not cause any physiological hazard or affect the food's odor and taste in any way. Food-grade lubricants, such Shell Cassida, are special blends of base fluids and additives, and should be approved by the US FDA and registered by NSF International in the H1 category.

All major food safety management systems recommends using food grade lubricant in food processing and packaging companies .HACCP,GMPS,BRC,ISO22000,1SO14000,SQF,IFS

Food Grade Lubricants  can be  categorised into  following groups

  •     Gear Box  Fluids
  •     Hydraulic Fluids
  •     Conveyor Fluids
  •     Speciality  Fluids

Major misconception s and facts about application of food grade in bakery plants.

Legend #1: Contamination by machinery lubricants with food and beverage during manufacturing doesn't happen.

Fact #1: It happens more often than we think. Most contamination is detected before the product leaves the plant - but some aren't.

Legend #2: I am pretty sure that the lubricants I use in my plant are all food grade.

Fact #2: Food grade lubricants are made from components approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for incidental contact with food. You can verify whether the lubricant is food grade or not by asking for a declaration of the formulation from the lubricant supplier, or by checking whether the product is H1 registered with a third party certifier such as NSF International.

Food-grade lubricants are readily available in the United States and a growing number of food and beverage manufacturers are using them. Any food or beverage processor not using food-grade lubricants is courting a huge risk. The FDA has set a "zero tolerance" for contamination by non-food grade lubricants and also governs the components that are allowed to make up a food grade lubricant. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) formerly approved lubricants as H1 ("for incidental food contact") and published the list in what was commonly known as the "White Book." The USDA ceased this activity in 1998. NSF International has since taken over the "White Book" and now registers lubricants as H1 food grade. You can verify whether the lubricants in your plant are food grade by checking the list of NSF H1 certified non-food compounds on www.nsf.org

Legend #3: Food-grade lubricant performance is inferior to traditional lubricants. The lubricants don't meet the demands of my applications.

Fact # 3: Synthetic food grade lubricants are designed to meet a wide range of applications and generally outperform traditional food grade mineral oils.

Machinery used in food and beverage processing has many moving parts requiring lubricants to maintain reliable and efficient operation. Food and beverage contamination can occur from drips off chains, hydraulic hose failure, oil leaks from seals and gearboxes, or a release of compressed air containing an oily mist. Using traditional non-food grade industrial oils and greases is inappropriate in these settings.

Food-grade synthetic lubricants, such as Shell Cassida®, are odorless, tasteless and generally outperform established mineral oil-based lubricants. They are specially engineered for high performance remaining effective in the sub-zero cold of freezers and the high heat of ovens. Their increased oxidation and thermal stability, compared to a traditional mineral or white oil-based food grade lubricant, can extend equipment life and reduce downtime, which lowers maintenance costs.

As the FDA restricts the type and concentration of additives allowed to enhance food-grade lubricant performance, the critical performance factor lies in the lubricant's base oil itself. Synthetic base oil has superior technical characteristics over traditional white mineral oils.

Synthetic food-grade lubricants are designed for use in food and beverage manufacturing applications, improving lubrication properties and performance and offering excellent water resistance. Food-grade lubricants are harmless if accidentally consumed in quantities below the maximum FDA-prescribed level of 10 ppm (10 parts per million).

Legend #4: Food-grade lubricants cost more than mineral oil products.

Fact #4: Synthetic food-grade lubricants actually cost less in the long run, because they not only reduce overall maintenance costs, but also can reduce the risk of potential liabilities from using non-food grade lubricants.

Synthetics do cost more than traditional mineral oils, but the initial cost of the synthetic brings subsequent returns, against which a food grade mineral oil-based lubricant cannot compete. Further, damages that could arise from not using H1-approved food-grade lubricants are immeasurable.

According to the Japanese Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM), "up to 65% of mechanical equipment failures can be attributed to some form of lubrication deficiency."2 Lubrication failures lead directly to production losses, so a robust lubrication program plays an effective part in plant management.

Lubrication quality has a significant impact on equipment life. Field experience and case studies show that food-grade synthetics have a longer product life and need to be replaced less frequently in machinery. In many instances, results demonstrate up to four times more life with synthetic oils.

Legend #5: None of my equipment actually requires food-grade lubricants for food safety.

Fact #5: Food grade lubricants should be used wherever there is a chance of incidental contact with food or beverage products during manufacturing.

Lubricants used in manufacturing facilities can make their way into the food we eat. Oil and grease droplets can seep from bearings and conveyors, can seamers, bakery ovens and other critical points of operation.

Plant quality managers and maintenance managers should identify areas of potential lubricant contamination. Companies can assist by conducting a Lubrication Contamination Control Point (LCCP) survey, which forms part of the plant Food Safety Plan. For example, a Shell LCCP Survey is based on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles and examines where the risks are in a plant, what they are and what can be done about reducing and managing them.

Food and beverage processing plants must prevent accidental lubricant contamination, which could potentially harm consumers and damage a company's brand and reputation. Synthetic food-grade lubricants can help minimize these risks, adding a buffer against contaminating our food supply.

Private label bakery products giving competition to big brands


Private labels bakery products have become corner stone for many food retails to rake up good profits . Private labels have gained much of popularity with food retails who are gradually moving towards their own brands than to put big brands . Food retailers either with their own facility of outsourced manufacturing gets their bakery product .

Report, based on a consumer survey, reveals that while the adoption of private labels began with its value proposition, consumers perceive these store brands are offering quality at par with other national brands.

New Sets of manufacturers have sprung up to cater this private label requirements or manufacturers with idle capacity see this as good opportunity .Bringing extra jobs and employment .

Major food retailers like Reliance, Aditya Birla and Food Bazaar all have their private label bakery products . Private label foods have already been practised by retail giants like Wall Mart , Carrefour and Tesco .In addition to private label products they have live bakeries placed in their food courts.

Big Brands manufacturers have to innovate , launch new products with lower price strategy to counter this private label products invasion. Trade margins to be re worked with big retailers .

Griffin New Zealands Favorite biscuit manufacturer outsources production to Fiji


Griffin is one of the leading biscuit manufacturer in New Zealand .This was done to meet out huge demand of Griffin products . The present capacity at Auckland fall short of that .Company has not disclosed which brand has been shifted to Fiji for production .Few of the cream biscuit packs have stopped displaying " Buy New Zealand Made".Brands includes Cameo Cremes, Belgian Cremes, Lemon Treats, Melting Moments and Swiss Cremes and accounts for 2.5 per cent of Griffin's' total biscuit production. It has also been dropped from Lemon Treats.
What ever the reason being definitly company would gain on cost of prodution as labor in Fiji would be available at lower payout.

Many bakery manufacturers would move production base to other countries to enter the local market and also take the cost advantage .

Rancidity and its measurement in bakeries


Fat and Oils are major ingredients for any baked goods . These oils and fats are bought in bulk by these bakery manufacturers . Chances of fat or oil being rancid becomes high if stored for a longer period .This rancid fat or oil can then effect the quality of baked items . Fat and oil can be checked for rancidity prior to production by instrument called rancimant .


What Is Rancidity?


Rancidity is a very general term and in its most general meaning, it refers to the spoilage of a food in such a way that it becomes undesirable (and usually unsafe) for consumption. When people say that a food has "gone bad," what they're usually talking about is rancidity. Most of the time, but not always, rancidity can change the odors or flavors of a food in such a way that it becomes very unpleasant to smell or taste.


While most any food can technically become rancid, this term applies particularly to oils. Oils can be especially susceptible to rancidity because their chemistry can make them exceptionally susceptible to oxygen damage. When food scientists talk about rancidity, they are often talking about a specific type of rancidity involving oxygen damage to foods, and this type of rancidity is called "oxidative rancidity." During the process of oxidative rancidity, oxygen molecules interact with the structure of the oil and damage its natural structure in a way that can change its odor, its taste, and its safety for consumption. Chemical reaction produces butryic acid which gives the foul smell and taste .


Rancidity is caused by hydrolysis and oxidation. Heat, moisture and exposure to light will increase these chemical reactions and thus increase the likelihood of the onset of rancidity. Anti –oxidant added in during dough preparation prevents or delays oxidation hence the rancidity of oil or fat .


How to measure the level of Rancidity?


Apparatus called Rancimat is used to calculate effect of antioxidant on oil and fat . Other methods like used for determination of rancidity are Peroxide value ( Primary Oxidation)and Anisidine value( Secondary Oxidation) in fat or oil .Peroxide value provides the extent of rancidity present in the oil.Peroxide value is found by formation of iodine when oil or fat are reacts with iodine ion. Totox value are also used to check the quality of oil and fat .


Totox Value = Anisidine value + 2x Peroxide value


The 743 Rancimat is an instrument with two separately thermostatted heating blocks, each holding up to four reaction vessels containing 2 to 10g of sample.This means that samples can be run at one or two different temperatures.


Up to four different instruments can be linked to a single PC via serial interfaces.Up to 32 samples at eight different temperatures can be measured.


The short-chain carboxylic acids formed by the oxidation at elevated temperatures are collected in the deionised water and the conductivity measured.


The conductivity time curve is shown live for each measuring point.


The induction time is determined automatically from the second derivative of the measuring curve.
