Brabender: Hardness and Structure Tester
The Hardness and Structure Tester is used in grain mills for testing and recording the grain hardness of e.g. wheat. The results provide useful information about the necessity of technological treatment (conditioning/drying) of the grain charge prior to milling. Furthermore, the entire milling process can be optimized if the parameter „grain hardness“, which is decisive for milling, is known early. The milling results can be improved and yield can be increased.
