Case studies

Let us take you into the fascinating world of Memmert appliances, which we have collected on our user platform  AtmoSAFE. From turbo drying of vast amounts of powder in the vacuum drying oven to artificial ageing of cables in the heating oven to climate testing of electronic devices in the climate oven. 

If you have questions regarding a special appliance please don’t hesitate to give us a shout:

Drying of strain gauges in the drying oven

Greg LeMond, Mark Cavendish, Normann Stadler and Faris Al-Sultan are only a few of the thousands of athletes who have monitored their performance with the help of an SRM PowerMeter during their athletic careers. The highly sensitive strain sensors in the interior of the device enable precision and measurement accuracy. The hardening of the strain gauges is performed in three Memmert drying ovens.

Oven for standard tests on dishwashers and detergents

Some people are of the opinion that dishwashers rank among the most important inventions of modern times. The inventor of the dishwasher was – how could it be otherwise – a woman: American Josephine Cochrane.

How does our body clock tick?

Switzerland is world-famous for its clocks. It therefore seems logical that four renowned Swiss universities, located in Basel, Geneva, Zurich and Lausanne, are dedicated to chronobiology. Freiburg University, which is located nearby, is also on this list. Why some people are "early birds" while others are "night owls" and turn night into day is just one question this branch of research deals with on a cellular and molecular level.

Conditioning of weighing cells in the climatic test chamber

The reference list of MULTIPOND makes you hungry for more. Well-known companies from the food industry use fully automatic MULTIPOND multihead weighing systems to weigh the ingredients for their sweets, snacks, yoghurt, cereals, coffee, tea, nuts or cheese, before transferring them to the packaging machine. The adjustment of the strain gauge weighing cells is done in a Memmert climatic test chamber CTC, as well as in a TTC temperature test chamber.

Curing silicone and adhesives of Cochlea implants

The Austrian company MED-EL is one of the world's technology leaders in the field of hearing implant systems. In 2014, MED-EL was awarded, among others, the Austrian National Innovation Prize. They use more than 80 Memmert heating ovens in their production to cure silicones and adhesives. Thanks to the excellent service of Memmert partner GML-Fischerlehner + Kucera GmbH in Innsbruck, the appliances have been running reliably and problem-free for many years.

When it comes to cell cultivation, active humidification is a must

With assistance of the Institute of Bioprocess Engineering at Erlangen university, the COSIR project is currently in progress. Results of the project are eagerly awaited in the field of cell biology. At the beginning of the project, the Memmert CO2 incubator, in which several different tests were performed for the study, was evaluated. The result showed that the active humidification system decreases evaporation inside the chamber considerably as compared with common incubators with passive humidification.

Shelf life testing of dairy products in China

China has discovered milk. In order to meet the demand of more than 1.3 billion people, companies such as Bright Dairy & Food build state-of-the-art production facilities. In this report, AtmoSAFE pursued the question of why the Chinese have started drinking milk thousands of years after the Europeans and also visited the quality laboratory of Bright Dairy & Food. In the laboratory, a Memmert Peltier-cooled incubator is used for microbiological testing and shelf life testing.

Conditioning of car leather in the drying oven

Compared to the automotive industry, there is hardly any other branch where quality assurance plays such an important role. This does not only apply to the major car manufacturers, but also to companies such as Auto Leder Atelier that retrofit leather seats. For all types of seats, the general operating licence is steadily renewed and of course also the internal quality assurance is integrated in the quality management acc. to DIN ISO 9001.

Sous vide cooking in the country in Landgasthof Siebenkaes

For more than 20 years, Ulrich Riedel has been at the stove with his crew whenever Memmert has something to celebrate. And even in the kitchen, many experiments were started together. Cherry tomatoes were dried in the vaccuum oven and apple wedges were kiln-dried in the heating oven.

Tempering of optical lenses in the drying oven

The future of cameras, sensors, measuring equipment and other opto-electronic systems belongs to plastic optical lenses. The Nuremberg-based company UPT Optik Wodak GmbH has specialised in the development and manufacturing of these innovative optical components. After injection moulding, tempering is done in a Memmert cleanroom drying oven UFP 800 to increase form stability.
