The falling Number (FN) method is a fast and easy test to determine alpha-amylase activity in order to detect sprout damage. Alpha-amylase activity has great influence upon the quality of baked goods, pasta, and noodles. Sprout damage is caused by alpha-amylase, which is a naturally occurring enzyme in grain that increases in concentration during wet harvests. The Perten Instruments FN method is the World Wide Standard for measuring alpha-amylase activity in both flour and meal of wheat, durum, rye, barley, other grains and malted cereals.
Save money by avoiding of mixing sound and spouted grain.
Blend grains or flours to create a product with specific characteristics.
Easy to Use
Confidently used by non-technical operators.
Non-complex, robust design provides exceptional instrument life.
Low Cost of Ownership
No consumables or chemicals required.
Automatic recalculation of FN results.
The measured property is time (Seconds), and no calibration is required. This saves the user time and ensures correct and reliable measurements.
Ensure the delivery meets the end-user specifications.
Uniform reporting for grain growers, traders and processors.
International standards and recommendations such as AAC/No. 56-81.03, ICC/No. 107/1, ISO/DIS 3093
Falling Number 1000 Instrument
The next Generation of Falling Number System
The Falling Number 1000 is an automatic dual sample analysis system designed for simple operation. The system includes functions for automatic water level control, automatic start and automatic stop at operator set FN target. It also includes functions for registration of sample ID, calculation of moisture corrected sample weight, mean value calculation, moisture corrected results, altitude correction and calculation of blends and malt addition. The user can also select the optional Fungal Falling Number method. With its 5.7" touch screen, operation is simple and intuitive - including local language options. The FN 1000 has USB and Ethernet ports for printer and bar code reader and results can be readily copied to a memory stick or sent for external collection in e.g. a central LIMS system.
Faster: The FN1000 can be set to a target FN value, and once the target FN is reached, the instrument automatically stops the test and pushes down the stirrers, and reports the result as greater than the input target value - e.g. "300+". This frees operators to perform other tasks and improves sample throughput.
Safer: The FN 1000 is designed with an outwardly isolated water bath, plastic cover on the cooling lid, and stirrer mechanism isolation to protect operators.
Simpler: The FN 1000 is operated via an intuitive touch screen, measures atmospheric pressure, and alerts the operator to activate altitude correction if the detected atmospheric pressure is too low. Greater connectivity with 4 USB ports and an Ethernet port enables simultaneous use of printers, data capture connection, bar code readers and more.
Water Dispenser: Easily and accurately dispenses 25 ml of water.
Cooling Tower: Saves water and environment by re-circulating cooling water.
Shakematic: Automatic Shaker for fast and uniform Sample Mixing.
Spolett 1010: Rapid Falling Number tube cleaner.
Laboratory Mill 120 or 3100: Approved hammer mills for preparation of grain.
Falling Number Tubes: Calibrated viscometer tubes (10 per box).
Falling Number Stirrer: Perten Instruments Falling Number Stirrer.
Balance: With an accuracy of +- 0.05g.
Moisture Meter: To determine moisture content of meal and flour. * Models 1900,1700,1500
Falling Number 1700
The Falling Number 1700 System is a microprocessor controlled automatic dual analysis system designed for simle and convenient operation of the Falling Number test. The dual analysis allos for duplicate analysis or duoubles the number of samples analyzed in a given time.
Falling Number 1500
The Falling Number 1500 system is a microprocessor controlled automatic single analysis system designed for simple operation. The control unit with printer and display can be set for local language. The system includes sample ID registration via keyboard or bar code reader, serial data output, altitude correction and calculation for mixing and malt addition.
