  • SPD 4200

    SPD Sequential Precision Divider

    Just about everyone who tests grain needs to divide a larger amount of grain into a smaller, but still representative sample. The SPD 4200 does this faster, easier and better than ever before.
  • Rapid Visco Analyser TecMaster

    RVA TecMaster

    RVA TecMaster - A fully featured viscometer for analyzing most samples. It covers the mid viscosity range (20 - 8,000 cP at 160 rpm). General purpose applications include: starches and starchy samples, hydrocolloids, proteins, formulated, cooked and extruded foods and "Miniature Pilot Plant" small scale process emulation.

  • Rapid Visco Analyser StarchMaster

    RVA StarchMaster 2

    The RVA-StarchMaster2 operates stand-alone with four preset methods in the instrument. It's suitable for production, quality assurance, quality control, raw material testing and process control.

  • Rapid Visco Analyser 4500

    RVA 4500

    RVA 4500 - Designed for applications where the maximum temperature is 99.9C, the RVA 4500 offers the same performance as the RVA 4800.

  • Lab Mill 3610

    Lab Mill 3610

    LM 3610 is a larger disc mill also approved for oven and NIR moisture tests. It is also well suited for grinding large size material such as feed raw material, pellets etc. The LM 3610 can grind larger samples than the LM 3310.
  • Lab Mill 3310

    Lab Mill 3310

    Laboratory Mill 3310 is a disc mill specifically designed for grain moisture analysis and is approved for both oven and NIR moisture tests. It is also adopted by AACC, standard methods No. 55-30 to determine wheat hardness by PSI (Particle Size Index). It can grind samples of up to 50 grams.
  • Lab Mill 3100

    Lab Mill 3100

    LM 3100 is a hammer mill with a robust metal construction built in and insulated for low noise level. It is suitable for grinding for Falling Number, Glutomatic, Kjeldahl and NIR analysis. It has a cyclone sample outlet for convenient sample collection, which also makes the mill virtually self-cleaning between grindings.
  • Laboratory Mill 120

    Lab Mill 120

    Laboratory Mill 120 is a simpler hammer mill with a robust metal construction. The sample is collected in a nylon bag. It is suitable for the same applications as the LM 3100.
  • doughLAB


    CGI approved analysis of flour water absorption, dough development and mixing tolerance. The doughLAB determines water absorption of flour, dough development time and other dough mixing parameters.
  • Aquamatic 5200 Grain Moisture Meter

    Aquamatic 5200 Grain Moisture Meter

    Second Generation 150 MHz Technology - Determine moisture and Hectoliter Weight/Test Weight in all grains and oilseeds in only 10 seconds.
  • Falling Number 1310

    Falling Number 1310

    FN 1310 is our basic model which allows users to buy an original Perten system at a value price. It is an automatic single analysis system designed for fast and convenient operation of the Falling Number test.
