Optimize Canola/Rapeseed with this Quality Control Solution

Optimal yield in Canola/Oilseed Rape implies good genetics and efficient control of sowing, crop pests, and harvesting.

Just like any other Oilseed traded with a focus on the Oil Content percentage, the price of any operation will be eventually determined by an Oil Content Analysis, which very likely will be performed by a Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer (ISO 10565 norm). A quality NMR is essential. With Spinlock technology, it is possible to analyze the oil and moisture content (and even oleic acid and protein) fast, precisely, and non-destructively. Companies save time and resources because samples do not need preparation and can be reused without any inconvenience. NMR protects the environment as Chemicals like Hexane are replaced by an innocuous technique. 

Analysis of Canola by Magnetic Resonance is easier and more reliable with the SLK-200.

Advantages of analyzing samples with SLK-200:

– Eco-friendly solution: no solvents, no chemicals.

– Hardware is small and light. Easy to assemble and move.

– Reduced Maintenance Costs.

– Software is easy to operate and manage.

– Technical support around the world through Spinlock Online Helpdesk.

– Results are fast and accurate.

– Does not destroy the sample. Allows unrestricted analysis repetitions.

– Sample does not require prior preparation.

– Stable: does not require daily verification.


Laboratories, Chambers, Seedbeds, Oil Industry, and Stockpiles use this equipment. Enterprises such as Syngenta, Corteva, Nuseed, Limagrain, and Cofco (among hundreds of other clients) are already optimizing their processes with SLK-200s worldwide.

The science of agriculture is constantly looking for solutions to manipulate crops in order to increase the yield and quality of the oils it produces. That is why seed crops with a high oleic acid content are always favored and a premium in price is applicable when sold.

Peanut oil is made up of numerous fatty acids. It has been shown that a higher content of Oleic Acid in peanuts and their derivative products, considerably increases quality and useful life. Peanut seeds have an oil content that is around 45% of their weight on average. The main fatty acids contained in its oil are Oleic, Palmitic, and Linoleic. Countless studies agree that the higher the content of oleic acid, the greater the durability and quality of peanuts and their derived products. This is expressed in the well-known O/L (Oleic/Linoleic) ratio.

The SLK-200 NMR is capable of analyzing the oleic acid content in 37 cm3 samples of peanut seeds or in an individual seed or grain. Furthermore, you can simultaneously measure the percentage of oil, moisture, and linoleic acid if desired. The NMR analysis of individual peanut seeds allows producers the selection, reproduction, and cultivation of high oleic seeds, thanks to its non-destructive technique, the main advantage of NMR versus GC (Gas Chromatography). Each determination of Oleic is carried out in less than 4 seconds allowing the seeds to be classified as high, medium, and low oleic. It also allows the analysis of peanut by-products: Butter, Expeller-Pellet.

The NMR technique is the ideal tool for quality control and facilitates the daily work of producers and breeders of peanut seeds, Crushers and Oil Industry, and research or service laboratories. It replaces chemical analysis, which is relatively expensive and takes hours to prepare the sample and measure, with a fast and cheap technique.

Latest developments in the measurement of High Oleic Sunflower with the SLK 200 NMR

Spinlock continues to lead the market for quality analysis in Sunflower Seeds and Grains, incorporating new parameters and higher precision. We recently incorporated as clients sunflower oil and expeller/pellet factories in Argentina, and also clients for the same applications in Bulgaria, Italy and Australia.

The ability of our SLK 200 to measure oil, moisture and content of % Oleic Acid is already known, and now we have also incorporated the possibility of measuring % Protein in grains and sunflower by-products, such as expeller / pellet.

The SLK 200 NMR can analyze 37cm3 samples of sunflower seeds or samples of 1 single seed. This makes it the only equipment on the market capable of analyzing seed by seed and exclusively designed to distinguish COMMON SUNFLOWER FROM HIGH OLEIC SUNFLOWER (HOSO).

The measurement is fast (less than 4 seconds), accurate and does not destroy the sample. The parameters that it measures simultaneously are:

  • Oil
  • Moisture
  • Oleic, linoleic and main fatty acids.
  • Proteins


The results obtained can be visualized on the computer and exported to different formats. The software is very easy to use.

Hundreds of Spinlock customers use our technology in more than 20 countries and on all continents. Within our client base we count the support of: DOW, Syngenta, Advanta, Pepsico, Pioneer, CORTEVA, NUSEED, FIPAI EMPRAPA, Alta Seeds – ADVANTA, SOLTIS, SYNGENTA, Limagrain, ADM, Bunge, Cargill, etc.
