texture analysis, texture analyzer by Agrosta
Motorized firmness tester
US $ 3818 Incl DHL / Fedex Freight
Our Agrosta Texture Analyzer has the best value for money worldwide. It is a very simple, robust and efficient device designed to characterize firmness, springiness, fracturability, hardness… Bloom strength… of most food and soft materials We propose more than 100 tips, tables or beakers adapted to client’s requests. Specific probes can be made on demand within a few hours on one of our 3D printers Our texturometer comes with : - 1 beaker and 1 table (Or 2 tables or 2 beakers) depending on your needs - 5 different tips to be choosen within the more than 100 tips we propose, or customized with  3D printing - A power supply with plug for North america - A certificate of conformity - A software compatible with Windows XP, 7, 8, 10 (Can be customized..) Texture analyzis principle : - You can define up to 10 parameters through the software - The machine comes in contact with the sample according to the high speed defined - Then, when the contact pressure defined is reached, it starts the stroke as defined in 1/10e mm in the soft - The pressure is displayed each 10 milliseconds - Then the machine goes back to Home position - If you want to measure springiness, or form memory, you can define the parameters for a second stroke - In this case, the machine goes back according to a defined stroke, waits a time defined in the soft, and starts a second pressure Data can be exported to Excel, Word, Xml, the maximum pressure is automatically calculated and stored (If you want to test big batches, like in the fruits sector for example, you can store only the maximal pressure for each fruit - Then you obtain the statistics for the batch : Standard deviation, average, mini, maxi..)
