Conical probes

Conical probesFTC offers six Perspex and one stainless steel conical probes with angles ranging from 15° to 90°.

Cone penetrometry is traditionally used within dairy products to assess hardness and spreadability. It has also found application in biscuits and other similar brittle bakery products.

The cone taper can also be used to spread powders and other fine granular products to assess flow or consistency.

The University of Arizona’s Nutritional Sciences Food Lab acquired a Texture Analyzer from Food Technologies about 5 years ago. The company has a great product, which is tailored to food needs. 

We have used the Texture Analyzer for both research projects and as a tool to demonstrate to students how food manufacturers can employ objective testing in product evaluation to show how differing ingredients in the same product can affect quality attributes. Its use adds another dimension to the foods labs.

Drew Lambert has been instrumental in helping with set up for testing and providing support whenever there’s a question. He has been a pleasure to work with and is always accommodating with our needs and schedules.  He has even sent us special attachments for special projects.  We couldn’t ask for a better technical support.  Thanks for a great product and great service.
