Alphatec FNO

Alphatec FNO, is a safe way for grain receivers and flour millers to perform the standard falling number test used in the industry to check sprouting damage in grain and enzyme activity in grain and flour before baking, malting etc. Innovative safety features reduce the risk of burns and injuries. A cooling lid minimizes the rush of steam when loading samples, an insulated sample bath prevents contact with hot surfaces, while an overflow directly into waste also stops hot water spillage.

Sample type

Wheat, rye, barley, sorghum, flour and any samples requiring falling number analysis in compliance with international standards.

Parameters

Falling number based on alpha-amylase and related enzyme activity in grain and flour.

Hammertec

Hammertec  is a hammer type mill specially designed for standard sample preparation for falling number analysis (Alphatec FNO), NIR, nitrogen combustion methods, and other reference analyses. Non-stick surfaces are used to prevent carry-over and ensure more accurate results. Noise insulation makes it quieter than existing solutions, while a smaller footprint makes it significantly lighter and easier to move.

Sample type

Designed for milling grain samples for falling number, wet gluten and reference analysis for protein, moisture etc.

Technology

Crushes samples into a fine and homogenous powder using high speed rotation of a hammer by which the sample is impacted
