Penetration

Fruit crispness/ripeness

Horticulture Research Station wanted a precision penetrometer for hardness testing of different varieties of apple during plant breeding trials. Flexibility for future test configurations were also a requirement.

Penetration apple needle probe

 

 

Available in either 1mm or 2mm diameter, the FTC needle probes are used on fruits, vegetables, confectionery, cosmetics and fats.

Penetration apple spherical probe

 

 

For determining surface hardness of products such as cheeses, fruits and vegetables, or the fracturability of potato chips, the FTC spherical probe range features precision-engineered stainless steel ball-end probes, and plastic hemispherical probes which replicate squeezing in hand.

Penetration apple cylinder probe

 

 

Food Technology Corporation’s range of lightweight stainless steel cylinders are used for accurate measurement when penetrating and puncturing food samples.

Penetration apple conical probe

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

Texture of Cream Cheese

A dairy foods processor wanted a quantifiable, consistent way to detect differences between two cream cheese products.

Trusted by customers across the world

Excellent customer service. Consistently followed up and offered help without asking. Relatively low priced - provides good value. 

Easy to switch different load cells. Used it for 5 lab sessions for 68 students this semester and performed well.

I have found FTC to be an excellent partner for our company. In particular, it has been especially gratifying to work with Shirl Lakeway. Both creative and accommodating, he worked very hard with us to develop our projects.

I appreciate his commitment to our joint efforts and his open-minded approach. He and FTC have been exceptionally helpful.

As a Meat Scientist and program leader for the University of Nevada, Reno, I need to ensure that equipment I use in my lab is reliable, durable, versatile, and accurate. For texture analysis of meats, there are many systems available in the market. Over the last 15 years of my career, I¹ve worked with many of them and had great and bad experiences with different brands.

Last year, I decided to try a different system for my lab, the TMS-Pro Texture Analyzer from Food Technology Corporation. The system has all the attributes I was expecting to conduct texture and shear force analysis in a quick and not complicated way. The customer support provided by them is outstanding and their technicians are always ready to walk me through new procedures and initial set up. If you are looking for a reliable system for food texture analysis and special customer service, the TMS-Pro is the system to go for and the Food Technology Corporation is the one that can deliver the support.
