C.W. Brabender® Instruments, Inc. for over 88 years
has manufactured testing equipment designed for measuring and recording
rheology, viscosity, processing development, laboratory scale
compounding, extrusion, mixing applications and moisture of various
polymers and for testing the physical properties and quality of various
materials and food systems utilized in the food industry.
Brabender® is the original manufacturer of the torque rheometer. The recording dynamometer system was developed by Carl W. Brabender
in 1930. The first recording dynamometer unit was known as the
Farinograph® and was manufactured for the Milling & Baking Industry
to measure the consistency of dough.
During the mid 1930's growing developments in the Chemical Industry
required updated technology to define the processing characteristics of
various polymers. The inventive solution to the growing concerns was met
by Carl W. Brabender with the introduction of the
Plastograph® -- a bold evolutionary leap built upon the roots of the
Farinograph®. Since its early inception the Plastograph® has developed
into the world-renowned Plasti-Corder® Torque Rheometer.
