QC Measurements for Liquid Food Products and Packaging 8/9/2009
Production quality and uniformity in food processing and its subsequent packaging is closely related to good Quality Control (QC) during the manufacturing process. In order to achieve high quality merchandise with minimal production losses, good process control and monitoring is critical. This is true for production of both the food product itself, the packaging, and of course for putting the former inside the latter efficiently. Laboratory and on-line systems are capable of delivering solutions for QC monitoring, and in cases where extra information (related sometimes to product development, and not to QC) about the flow properties are unnecessary, an on-line option can be the most useful.

Rheological Properties of Bitumen Modified with Polyethylene & Polyethylene Based Blends 7/1/2009
Nowadays a very large majority of the roads are constructed using a mixture of bitumen (5 wt. %) and mineral aggregates. Notwithstanding this low bitumen content, the performance of the road pavement is determined by the properties of the bitumen, as bitumen is the continuous phase and the only deformable component. On the other hand, from a technological point of view, the continuously increasing traffic load on road pavements has resulted in tightening of binder specifications in order to obtain higher mechanical stability of asphalt roads. However, the limit of increasing pavement performance with conventional pure bitumen seems to have been reached.  Read More »

Overview of Rheology-Based Process Challenges for the Surface Coating Industry 3/12/2002
In general, surface coatings are multi-phase fluids, usually one or more liquid phase, which may or may not be water based, in which particulate matter is suspended. The effectiveness of the coating depends on many things, including the properties of both phases and their interaction, the nature of the substrate, the method of application of the coating to the substrate, and diverse processing conditions including temperature, mixing, time, etc. Read More »

Determining The Optimum Conditions For Food Handling & Stability 8/12/2000
In many practical applications the yield point of a product is of interest. In a simple definition the yield point is the minimum stress that is required to make a material flow. In the food industry the yield value is very important for a product’s stability. For example, a salad dressing should not show phase separation or sedimentation of solid ingredients such as herbs and spices.Read More »
