YeastForce

Everything you should know about YeastForce:

For a correct measurement result, the tightness and the used gas volume must be known. In case of deviations you can act quickly.

The sensor is moved frequently during operation. To maintain the accuracy of the CO2 sensor, it should be adjusted at least monthly with CO2-free gas (via absorption with NaOH).

The volume or pressure within the sensor is strongly dependent on the ambient temperature and reacts unevenly to different ambient conditions without temperature control.

Yes, the integrated CO2 sensor measures the "surge" of CO2 when the dough tears, which is recorded as the timepoint of tearing.

YeastForce measures both the dough volume via pressure and the CO2 which escaped with an IR CO2 sensor. 

Yes, for YeastForce, it does not matter which source causes a volume increase or generates CO2.

In principle, yes, but the measuring range must be maintained by selecting the appropriate quantities.

Absolutely! As soon as different types of flour are processed as dough, you can use the same yeast (also batch) to correlate the data with the flour quality/type.

 A report in pdf format is generated and stored. 

NO, YeastForceMonitor measures every second and stores the data in a file. These are the raw data. The raw data can be viewed and processed at any time. Measured values are stored in the report every 10 minutes.

Yes, when the measurement is running, all YeastForce values can be seen. 

50g with a 600 ml vessel. Larger vessels can also be used for larger quantities of dough. CAUTION: the volume must be determined exactly, otherwise measurement errors will occur.

YeastForce measures a resulting gas volume and CO2 and is therefore not limited in application to dough. YeastForce can also be used e.g. for dairy products, other food applications and generally everywhere where gas volumes and CO2 are to be determined.

Yes, because this is the basis for calculating the volume of gas produced.

No, Internet access is not necessary. The data is on the computer to which the sensors are also connected. No data is sent.

To obtain a correct measurement result, the tightness and the used gas volume must be known. In case of deviations you can act quickly.
