| Moisture Control in Lecithin Powders |
Lecithin is a natural emulsifier frequently used in the food industry and an essential component in many chocolate and candy formulations. When it comes to moisture control in the production of food grade lecithin, one of the world’s largest manufacturers - Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) with its headquarters in Decatur, Illinois – relies on METTLER TOLEDO.
| Unsurpassed Performance METTLER TOLEDO DERE System |
The Takasago International Corporation in Singapore manufactures high quality fragrances and flavorings to be later used in food manufacturing. The fragrance quality assurance laboratory was looking for the best method to measure density and refractive index in order to control the quality of their products. They found that the new LiQC measurement system from METTLER TOLEDO is the perfect choice.
| Simple & Secure - One Click™ Water Determination |
The quality of raw materials and end products within the flavor and fragrance industry depends highly on the water content. Water determination is a must for quality control. With the new Karl Fischer Titration from METTLER TOLEDO, analysis is completed within a few minutes with one click.
| The Way to A Good Perfume |
Everyone expects a ‘decent’ perfume to provide a pleasant and distinctive scent. At the same time, the fragrances should remain perceptible for as long as possible at a constant level of intensity. For this reason, fragrances used in perfumes are nowadays often encapsulated in so-called delivery systems. The release of the fragrances then occurs under control, allowing the perception of the perfume to be optimized with respect to intensity and time.
| Crispy Fillings for ‘Kinder’ Chocolates |
Forty years ago, Ferrero’s production site in Germany started producing ‘Kinder Schokolade’. The small chocolate bar with the creamy milk filling soon became a favorite treat for consumers of all ages and is still enjoyed today. In ‘Kinder Country’, puffed cereals promise a crunchy taste experience - provided that moisture is under control.
| Free Fatty Acid Test Easily Determined by Excellence Titrator |
When consumers purchase a bag of potato chips they can expect that the chips are going to taste the same – every time. One of the factors influencing taste is the oil the chips are fried in. During mass production, it is not efficient or realistic to change the oil after every fry batch so fresh oil is blended in with the existing batches to keep up the quality of the taste. However, each time the oil is heated, the free fatty acid (FFA) level in the oil increases. The amount of FFA in the oil can greatly affect the taste of the end product. Maintaining a low level of FFA is then crucial. This article documents a success story on how a professional demonstration and a free trial turned into a win-win solution.
| Metal Alloy Research Made Simple |
Magnesium based alloys are common place within science and technology. However, biodegradability and other alloy properties now open new applications. Degradation tests can easily be performed using the METTLER TOLEDO DL50 titrator to maintain the pH value of testing liquids during the week-long tests necessary.
| Greater Insight into Organic Molecules Using DSC 1 |
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is an indispensable analytical technique for the study of organic molecule polymorphism. Mr. Thibaud Detoisien of Condensed Materials and Nanosciences (CRMCN) in Marseille, France, was the winner of METTLER TOLEDO’s DSC 1 academia contest and is now planning to enhance his research results with the instrument.
| Simply Reliable METTLER TOLEDO pH Solutions |
As one of the nation’s top universities for public research, the University of California in Davis, U.S.A. invests a significant amount of time and money into advancing academic and extra-curricular programs. METTLER TOLEDO’s pH meter helps to assure the accuracy of students’ experiment results and most importantly, save on cost and time incurred.
| Optimal Yield for Soluble Coffee |
Freeze-drying, spray-drying and agglomeration are the drying technologies applied by Deutsche Extrakt Kaffee GmbH to preserve the flavor of freshly roasted coffee beans in instant coffee. No matter which technology is chosen, moisture content monitoring is a must. METTLER TOLEDO instruments help to ensure that the moisture content remains between 2-5% in order to meet the legal requirements and simultaneously provide a great coffee aroma.
| Storage Behavior of Maltodextrin Checked by TGA Sorption Analyzer |
Maltodextrins are easily digestible carbohydrates that are widely used as food additives. They find general application as binders, stabilizers, thickening agents and inhibitors in the production of foodstuffs. Besides this, they serve as a source of energy in nutritional beverages and high-energy and isotonic drinks for athletes and people engaged in sport. Maltodextrins are usually supplied as spray-dried powders. Their sensibility to moisture and therefore their storage stability can be checked using a TGA Sorption Analyzer.
| Development of Automotive Components by DSC |
The stability, suitability and lifespan of elastomeric materials are important for the development, quality control and production of automotive components. Some of the most common elastomeric automotive components are seals, O-rings and windshield wiper blades. The following two examples demonstrate how Differential Scanning Calorimetry DSC can be used to characterize elastomers and investigate curing reactions.
| Safety in Cars Secured by METTLER TOELDO Titrator Systems |
The Takata CPI factory in Singapore manufactures pyrotechnic components for seatbelts and air bags used in motor vehicles. Their quality control lab relies on METTLER TOLEDO’s instruments as a very important part of their quality control process in the manufacture of explosive initiators.
| The First Class Choice - METTLER TOLEDO Ultra Micro and Micro Balances |
METTLER TOLEDO has recently introduced an enhanced generation of Ultra Micro Balances- XP6U, XP2U and Micro Balance XP6. These balances are designed to boost efficiency, productivity and reliability in laboratories. We asked Kaspar Dieffenbacher, the project leader of the new Micro Balances, to tell us about this new innovation and to explain what the changes mean for end users.
| CarePac: Professional Weight Set to Ensure Balance Accuracy |
Routine balance testing is the most economical way to ensure accurate results every time. CarePacs are designed to respond to ever increasing time pressures by offering fast and convenient balance testing.
| RTCal™ for RC1e, The Innovative Calorimetry Mode In-Use |
Based in Duisburg Germany, Hexion™ Specialty Chemicals is one of the global market leaders for thermally curing resins. They are the world Number One, especially in the fields of formaldehyde resins and epoxy resins. METTLER TOLEDO’s RC1e, which had been employed successfully at its Duisburg location for years, has now been upgraded with the innovative and unique measuring mode RTCal™ to obtain a profound understanding of reaction procedures in a faster, simpler and more reliable way.
