September 13th, 2020 – Erkaya Instruments continues to provide cutting-edge technology for the milling sector. The company has recently launched their SD-Analyser, one of the few companies in the sector to offer this innovative service.
Erkaya’s SD-Analyser is ideal for analysing startch damage in flour. The device provides simple, fast and reliable results with samples as small as 1g and provides results in less than 10 minutes. The solution works through iodine absorbtion in a diluted flour suspension. The more starch damage that is present, the faster the iodine is absorbed.
Starch damage is a useful tool for checking the conditions of the rolls, adjusting water absorption and dough stickiness as well as optimising the volume, colour and shelf life of the final product. Erkaya has been proudly manufacturing high-quality products such as gluten washers, falling numbers, laboratory mills , grain samplers and more.
