A quick, precise 2-in-1 solution

Micro Visco

The Micro Visco-Amylo-Graph combines the functions of the Viscograph-E and Amylograph-E in one device.

Thanks to small sample sizes of 5–20g, plus a higher heating and cooling rate, the measurement time is shorter than that of traditional methods.

The measuring principle is similar to that of the Viscograph-E: a starch-water or flour-water suspension is heated in a rotating bowl and cooled down again, both under controlled conditions. Use the standard procedure (heating - holding - cooling) or save your own temperature profiles.

The special geometry of the paddle ensures good mixing of the sample - there is no sedimentation of starch particles. Temperature measurement directly within the sample makes it easy to always precisely assign the temperature to the current viscosity.

In the measurement diagram (shown above) you can see the following parameters:

  • Beginning of gelatinization [A]
  • Gelatinization maximum [B]
  • Gelatinization temperature [C]
  • Viscosity during holding [D]
  • Viscosity at the end of cooling [E]
  • Flour
  • Starch
  • Animal feed
  • Pet feed
  • Fish feed
  • Fodder
  • Paper
  • Glue

The Brabender MetaBridge Controller extension enables you to use the new Brabender MetaBridge device software.

All models with a USB port can be upgraded. The extension is connected to the equipment via USB – completely plug and play, so no need for installation.

You benefit from many advantages:

  • Multiple users can simultaneously access the measurements, wherever in the world they may find themselves.
  • The software offers comprehensive export functions, and the user interface adapts to every type of terminal device.
  • Countless settings are intuitive to configure.
