B-TSE-S 30/40: Compact extruder for pilot plant and small-scale production
In the field of industrial applications, direct scalability from the laboratory to production plants is only possible to a limited extent. This is where the B-TSE-S 30/40 comes into play as a pilot plant and link between laboratory and large-scale production. This compact extruder enables upscaling to both lab-to-pilot and pilot-to-production levels.
Likewise, the B-TSE-S 30/40 is suitable for manufacturers of innovative products as well as for startups that have yet to establish them on the market and therefore keep their production volumes low. Thanks to the short changeover times, it is also possible to produce customized products in short runs. With its food-compliant design, the extruder enables suitable production quantities and safe products for sensory tasting or feeding trials.
Process advantages of the B-TSE-S 30/40 include the well-known “Clam Shell Design” of Brabender twin screw extruders. The horizontally and electrically hinged liner provides an optimum view of the entire process. For example, starch gelatinization can be ideally observed there. In addition, the user has easier access for cleaning, as the screws can also be removed without difficulty.
You gain a modern project workflow through the possibility of location-independent access by several users with different end devices. The web-based MetaBridge software also offers the option of online updates. Expand your analysis options by accessing measurement results via the integrated correlation software. Operation via touchscreen is convenient. Benefit from additional helpful features, such as an integrated note deposit function in the diagram and individually adjustable diagram parameters.

Brabender devices with this function have a built-in computer and a touch display. This allows our customers to directly and easily start operating our devices without any IT experience. Combined with other Brabender technologies such as EmbeddedHC, this results in a very compact device setup.
The DirectTemp technology is the key factor for precise temperature control. In order to achieve high accuracies and low latencies by measuring the temperature in the sample, Brabender uses specifically designed temperature probes with high thermal conductivity directly attached to the removable measuring container in the measuring mode or places temperature probes directly in the sample.
Brabender’s cross-device software solution provides a consistent user experience between all Brabender units. The MetaBridge comes with various data evaluation functionality, preimplemented standards and customizable measurement methods in order to meet application specific requirements. Regular updates improve and expand your device and let you automatically benefit from the latest trends and developments.
The ExtMB software belongs to the MetaBridge family and is our optimized version for the laboratory extrusion process. Here, all sensor data is summarized in an interactive measurement and this further enhances your understanding of your product.
The MetaBridge Connect technology provides various data exchange interfaces and flexible connectivity features. Data sharing between all Brabender MetaBridge devices in one network allows for smart workflows and process efficiency. Moreover, the integrated web-based software interface (WebAPI) connects and automatically exchanges data with natively connected database systems and / or 3rd party laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) or ERP solutions.
MetaBridge Correlation is an optional software package for performing correlation studies across multiple data sets. It allows for comparison of multiple measurements and parameters in a tabular and in an interactive graphical view. Particularly for quality control purposes, the compliance with a pre-defined tolerance is automatically evaluated and highlighted.
The MetaBrigde Database represents a local data center in the customer network and a basic laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) for Brabender devices. Connected Brabender devices transfer measurement results automatically into the central MetaBridge database. Besides of the backup functionality, statistical analysis and crossdevice correlations between multiple data sets can be performed.
labfolder allows you to store, manage and search your measurement data in one central location, independent of the instrument. Brabender MetaBridge instruments have an automated built-in connection to labfolder. It’s never been easier to get started with lab digitization.
