BVM Volume Measurement
The BVM provides accurate analysis that is repeatable and applicable from one production site to the next. The instrument is robust and easy to use for millers, bakeries, food companies, food ingredient suppliers, food research institutes and test kitchens.
It is operated using a menu-based computer interface. A sample is placed on a rotating support inside the instrument and its volume is measured using a laser on the end of a rotating arm. The BVM VolCalc software calculates the volume, dimensions, weight and density of the sample and shows the results together with a three-dimensional drawing of the sample. Results can also be stored in a database for further processing, or transferred to another computer.
