The panel on Sophia also houses the brand new SEE Pro Hiller controller centre which is the first in the UK and offers faster processing speeds, a more user-friendly HMI interface and increased communication capabilities.

Both test rigs are equipped with and connected to the MSE Hiller remote access and centrifuge monitoring system, allowing them to feedback operational performance and machine maintenance requirements to the MSE Hiller HQ at Markham Vale in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

The machines allow customers to take advantage of the opportunity to conduct process performance trials on their materials, at their site and confirm the operating costs, performance and potential savings during a “try before you buy” experience.
