AGROSTA TEXTURE

ANALYZER

Agrosta Texture Analyzer is a versatile high precision texturometer. It is dedicated to soft materials, food, gels and gelatins, as well as pharmaceutical products. We propose a wide range of optional accessories : Tensile testing system, bloom testing, raft hook, AOCS.. as well as many tips and tables Agrosta Texture Analyzer comes with : - A 5 Kg pressure capacity load cell (Maximum measurement range from 1 gram till 4600 grams) - A 110V / 220V power generation, and microUSB plug for PC communication - A calibration tray - A software for Windows (all versions, from Vista / XP till Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10) : With this software you can display graphs, fix the parameters (speeds and strokes, constant pressure etc..), extract the maximum values, make statistics, and export to Excel - Position range : 0 to 130 mm / Average accuracy : 0.2 gram / Resolution : 1 gram / Speed : From 0.1 mm per s to 27 mm per s / Design generation : 2018 - Guarantee period : 2 years Our texture analysis machine is able to perform any test according to international norms, as well as any specific test : You can adjust up to 14 parameters PUSH MODE : - 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 50 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 PULL MODE : - Use the arrows in the software in order to place the tip in the right position (on the surface or inside the sample) - Define the Pull speed - Launch the cycle : The tray goes back to home position while measuring pressures each 50 milliseconds CONSTANT PRESSURE MODE : - Define the value of pressure to be applied - Define the time of Hold - Start a cycle - The software provides the stroke of deformation in 0.1mm RECORD & LOAD PROFILES - Save your current parameters under Excel format, and load previous parameters easily
NEW IN 2019 : Once again we have improved our Texture Analyzer : - Measurement speed becomes 80 Hz (10 Hz on previous version) which means very accurate Texture Analyzis of your samples - The motor force capacity is limited to 5 Kg, which means you cannot damage your Texture Analyzer with a mishandling - Your Texture Analyzis machines comes now with an improved design : 3 Mat black laser cutted parts in plexiglass (Made in the Netherlands) ensure perfectly clean and smooth work surfaces - In order to provide clean, smooth and strong tips for your texture analyser, Agrosta has invested in a SLA 3D printer that prints Epoxy resin (very slight flexibility, excellent mechanical resistance, incredible accuracy) - With this printer, we can produce any specific Texture Analyzer head / tip for a very reasonable price - Our software for Windows has been improved, exporting data files to Excel becomes very easy, and you can save or load Texture Testing Profiles (Stored under Excel format) - We have increased the reliability of the power pack of your Texture Analyzer, and improved the Usb connection - The 2 main boards have been improved, with highly reliable electronic components - We propose now a shaft holder (option) for your texture analyzer, with spring collets 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 mm. So you can test the texture of your samples with any axis of one of those diameters
Agrosta Texture Analyzer accessories Texture analyzis accessories From PepsiCo USA : This is a fantastic machine that will be put to good use within the next couple weeks. From Jacobs, The Netherlands : After some tests we managed to find correlations between our standard equipment and Agrosta device - Based on this I would like to order 5 additional machines From CL, France : The machines has better features than Brookfield CT3 for a price divided by 3 From PT Indolab Indonesia : We have tested samples using the tensile tester with the customer. The result was great! The sensor is so sensitive From Electrolux, Sweden : Yesterday, we unpacked our new toy after Christmas. The system looks very good
