Foam Tester

Unit No.: FT-003

The foam of the beer is one of the important external quality characteristics of the drink and hence reliable measuring of the quality in the laboratory is valuable.

The FT-003 Foam Tester is developed for laboratories as an advanced but cost efficient unit which can be connected to the SD-002 Sampling Device to form a standalone test setup.

Foam is generated by pressing a constant beer volume through a nozzle into a glass cylinder where the foam develops and its decay is optically measured by recognized methods. By means of two IR reflection detectors placed at the outside of the glass cylinder test results may be obtained for “Half-life” and “First-drain”.

Ease of operation and a high reproducibility of measured results are features of this unit.
