The following are some of the products from Erkaya Instruments which are popular worldwide.
The international standard method for determination of alpha-amylase activity in grain
The Falling Number System measures the alpha-amylase enzyme activity in grains and
flour to detect sprout damage, optimize flour enzyme activity and guarantee soundness of
Alpha-amylase activity is crucial for final product quality of bread, pasta, noodles and malt.
Anyone handling wheat, barley, rye or sorghum intended for these applications will benefit
from the Falling Number system.
The method measures FN conforming to international standards
(ICC and AACC Standard methods).
The Erkaya Falling Number models are CE certified.
The world standard for gluten quantity and quality determination. When baking bread
and producing noodles or pasta, the flour gluten content and strength will determine
the quality of the finished product. The Erkaya Glutomatic System is the world standard
for determination of gluten quantity and quality.
The effect of gluten quantity and quality in the flour used for breads, cookies, crackers and
pasta is dramatic. In the photo of bread loafs above it is clear that the wet gluten quantity of
the flour strongly influences bread volume. Using the Erkaya Glutomatic System you will be
able to determine the baking quality of wheat and flour.
The Erkaya Glutomatic System Conforms to Official World Standards
(AACC No:38-52, ICC No: 155&158, 137/1).
Starch Damage Analyzer
The SD-A is a fully automated enzyme-free analyzer that produces a reliable measurement of
starch damage with only one gram of flour and within 10 minutes based on the Amperometric
The instrument is simple, fast and reliable. Device measures iodine absorption in a diluted flour
How fast the iodine is absorbed by the starch depends on how damaged it is.
Measures the level of starch damage in flour:
To ensure optimization and settings of the milling process (rolls, parallelism, wear).
To produce flours according to customer’s specifications.
To ensure a flour of an optimal and constant quality.
To optimize the addition of additives in the flour including α-amylase.
To predict and control processing and the quality of finished products (stickiness, volume, shelf-life and color).
To control the consistency of your flours (hydration rate, proofing, behaviour during the process)
To improve dough yield by adjusting the hydration rate of flours.
