Technical testing is the first step towards using process machinery in a successful and cost-effective way. This is why PROBAT has its own research and development center that offers unparalleled equipment and facilities. It covers the entire process chain from green coffee to grinding.

It also contains advanced laboratory and conference facilities that help develop new products, as well as the roasting and grinding technology needed to produce them. Customers and potential customers can take advantage of this globally unique research and development center, conducting experiments on all products and machinery. All trial runs are performed and accompanied by experienced engineers. We analyse customer needs together and convert them into solutions, taking the respective conditions into account.

Our research and development center offers the following services:

  • Roasting demonstrations and tests
  • Grinding demonstrations and tests
  • Emission measurements on roasters
  • Product development support
  • Laboratory analyses (such as venting behaviour, determining constituent substances with HPLC, etc.)
  • Quality checks and standard experiments on coffee
