Bestech Australia presents the TA Plus Texture Analyser, from Lloyd Instruments, a fully software controlled instrument that applies forces in both tension and compression up to 1kN (100kgf).
The TA Plus Texture Analyser specific measured parameters include adhesion force and adhesiveness, chewiness and cohesiveness, firmness, fracturability, gumminess, hardness, modulus, resilience, springiness and stringiness.
The TA Plus Texture Analyser features and advanced closed loop system, which enables precise machine control during a test to help depict accurate sample height measurements, for testing samples, to a percentage of their original size. Temperature and humidity probes, as well as other external ‘plug and play’ devices, can be connected to the TA Plus Texture Analyser to enable more parameters to be monitored during each test. The results are then reported to the NEXIGEN Plus software with respect to force, distance and time. ‘Test Start’ and ‘Test Stop’ condictions may also be controlled through these external devices.
The TA Plus Texture Analyser, available from Bestech Australia, are supplied with a base table, a 12.5mm diameter cylinder probe and stainless steel drip tray. Multilingual and multi unit display options are also available, as well as intelligent load cells and other texture analyser accessories.
