Quadrumat Junior: New roller mill for user-friendly lab flour preparation
What is it used for?
The Brabender Quadrumat Junior is a universal laboratory roller mill with integrated separation and aspiration for milling wheat, spelt, rye, barley and rice.
What is the result?
In one step, the multi-stage grinding process produces laboratory flours that are almost equivalent to commercially produced flour in terms of ash content, yield and baking quality.
Those can be used for subsequent analyses such as standard tests with Farinograph, Extensograph, Amylograph, Alveograph or Falling Number.
How does it work?
- Grain is filled into the feed hopper and flows through the adjustable feed gate over the feed roll
- Grain passes the first break (rolls no. 1 and 2), the second break (rolls no. 2 and 3) and the last grinding unit (rolls no. 3 and 4).
- The product drops into the round sifter
- The sifted flour falls into the flour drawer under the round sifter. The bran is collected in the bran drawer below the sifter outlet.
What are the benefits?
- Method complying with AACCI 26-50.01
- Close simulation of the production process
- Good reproducibility of the test results
- Production-like yield and quality of flour and ash content in a single process
- Maximum separation of endo- and exosperm
- No splitting up of the bran
- No re-adjustment needed when changing over to another type of wheat or to wheat with another moisture content
- Enhanced usability: Easy-to-clean design, larger drawers for flour (+ 22 %) and bran (+ 15 %)
- Compliance with current safety standards (incl. ATEX)
- Lower noise level
