Understand product flow properties in your manufacturing process

Get insight on flow properties when developing or improving your food production systems, creating a new process, or introducing a new pump system.

Viscosity by Rheology Property Characterization Test

Unlike many viscosity tests, this rheology test allows for more flexibility in measuring the physical properties of a product. While specific parameters and settings are useful, this flexibility allows us to tailor this test to reach your goals and answer questions even if previous testing has never been conducted. Rheometers are used to understand viscous and viscoelastic properties. This method allows for individualized instrument programing for each sample to determine viscosity of a product. This test is more flexible for settings compared to the Brookfield.

Viscosity by Rapid Visco Analyzer Test

This method, specific to grain products, measures viscosity through a cycle of heating, holding, then cooling.

Viscosity by Brookfield Viscometer Test

This method provides viscosity by measuring the resistance of flow utilizing a rotating spindle.

Physical characteristics

The physical characteristics of a sample or an ingredient is important to consider when handling new products or new equipment.

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) Test

This test measures different physical and thermodynamic properties of your sample, such as: melting temperature, protein denaturization, fat melting characteristics and many more applications.

Particle Size Distribution (Alpine Granulation) Test

Sieves are used to physically separate the particles in the sample. Uses an air flow to assist samples through sieve openings. Recommended for samples that easily form clumps or are sticky.

Particle Size Distribution (Microtrac) Test

Uses Laser Diffraction to provide a graph and detailed report of particle size distribution. Allows for a wide range of particle size to be analyzed without the need to specify sieve size. Recommended for most types of samples, including liquids.

Particle Size Distribution (Rotap) Test

Traditional method to measure particle size. Uses sieves to physically separate particles in the sample.
