Instruments in Food Technology Lab

Hot Air Oven

Hot Air Ovens are electrical devices which use dry heat to sterilize. Hot Air Oven is used for sterilization of glassware and materials that are spoiled by moist heat. It is used to determine moisture content in food materials.

Vacuum Oven

A vacuum Drying Oven is most often used for delicate drying processes. It is used to dry food materials which are heat-sensitive. During vacuum drying process low pressure environment minimizes oxidation during drying.

Tray Dryer 

Tray Dryer is the device used to dry the wet products of crude drugs, chemicals, powders or granules, etc. The simplest form of the dryer in this category is a cabinet with a heater at the bottom that is laboratory oven.

Muffle Furnace

Muffle Furnace is used for fussing glass, creating enamel coating and determining what portion of a sample is non-combustible and non-volatile (i.e. Ash). They are also called Bench Furnaces, Ashing Furnaces, Chamber Furnaces and Dental Furnaces.

Gerber Centrifuge

Gerber Centrifuge is used for the determination of fat content in milk. Fat determination is based on Gerber Method.

Baking Oven

Baking Oven is used to bake bakery products. It is used for the preparation of bread, cake rusk, bun, cookies and other desserts.

Fat Analyzer

Soxo plus is an automatic device used for qualitative determination of fat content in food items.

Fibre Analyzer

Fibroplus Soxo plus is an automatic device used for qualitative determination of fibre content in food items.

Seminar Hall

The Department has a Seminar Hall with a seating capacity of 100. It is equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual aids and is used by the students to deliver presentation of their Reports, Seminars, Projects, etc. The Seminar Hall is also useful for organizing Expert Lectures, Workshops and Training Programmes.

Nitrogen Analyzer

Kjeloplus is an automatic device used for qualitative determination of protein content in food items.
