The quality of beer foam is a determining factor in the appearance of a good beer and the appearance of a beer depends mainly on the behavior of the foam. Beer served with a strong and lasting head of foam is highly appreciated in most cultures.

The NIBEM Institute has set standards for the measurement of the foam stability. The NIBEM Foam Stability Tester measures the foam collapse time over a distance of 30 mm. Equipped with product identification and memory, the NIBEM Foam Stability Tester allows for the traceability of measuring data and up to nine different product types can be programmed into the tester.

After filling the glass with highly reproducible foam created with the Inpack 2000 Sampling Device in combination with the Inpack 2000 Flasher Head, the glass is placed in the instrument and the foam collapse time is automatically measured. Subsequently, the results are displayed and can also be exported to a PC and/or directly printed. The foam sample can then be used for determining the cling with the NIBEM Cling Meter.
