Carry out comprehensive rheological tests including sample preparation (e. g. grinding, moisture determination), with us in our state-of-the-art rheology laboratory.
Check, among other things:
Lab-scale extrusion for the development, analysis and optimization of products, formulations, methods and processes
Our extrusion laboratory for food and feed applications offers the best conditions for practice-oriented extrusion trials on a laboratory scale.
Due to low material input compared to production extruders as well as easy variation of material mixture and screw speed, temperature and shear, Brabender extruders allow efficient
Single- and twin-screw extruders as well as suitable peripherals (feeders, pumps, conveyor belts) for various extrusion processes (including hot, cold and wet extrusion) are available for testing. In addition, supporting analyses (e.g. moisture determination of raw material and extrudate, rheological analyses) can be carried out.
In our milling laboratory, various laboratory mills are available for the application-oriented preparation of your sample for subsequent analyses, e.g. for
The baking laboratory offers the possibility to process the flours previously analyzed with Brabender equipment into doughs and bake them using modern equipment. We thus check with you how different measurement results from rheological methods affect the baking result.
For this purpose, the established standard baking test or a mini-baking test can be used, in which the baking result is checked under controlled conditions.
Perform baking tests with these devices:
Brabender cooperates with universities, research institutions and industrial partners in the field of research and development of new products, formulations, methods and processes.
We support students with practice-oriented projects during their studies or as part of their final theses. PhD students in relevant disciplines and other representatives from science and industry are offered application-oriented support for their research project.
