Brookfield Offers Training
August 21, 2008
MIDDLEBORO, MA - Brookfield is offering three courses that provide users of Brookfield instrumentation with the hands-on knowledge to get the most out of their viscosity and texture-test methods. These day-long training sessions are presented in easy-to-understand terms that give attendees the working know-how to verify and improve upon the data required for meaningful R&D and successful quality-control testing.
These courses are offered at Brookfield’s facility in Middleboro, MA, and at major metropolitan areas across the United States. Arrangements can also be made to conduct the course at customers’ facilities where content can be adapted to specific product applications.
The Practical Course on Viscosity Measurement provides attendees with the tools and concepts they need to make the most precise viscosity measurements possible. The course is designed to benefit operators at all levels of experience. Participants are encouraged to bring product samples for testing where hands-on time is provided in a relaxed laboratory environment.
The Applied Course on Viscosity Test Methods is designed for the intermediate-to-advanced Brookfield Instrumentation user in R&D, analytical, and process engineering functions. Focusing on test methods and techniques, it will review and discuss how Brookfield rotational viscometers and rheometers can be used to provide meaningful product analysis. The course takes students beyond pass/fail criteria to an understanding of how to apply viscometric data as a problem solving and product performance/processing tool.
The Practical Course on Texture Analysis provides attendees with the technical training they need to meet their method development and application needs. Theoretical knowledge and lots of hands-on exercises provide attendees with techniques, methods and valuable industry know-how. Principles of texture analysis, correlation to sensory perception, texture instrumentation and accessories and an introduction to TexturePro software are all included. Attendees will also receive a copy of Professor Malcolm Bourne’s latest book entitled “Food Texture and Viscosity, Concept and Measurement.”
