Lightweight Perspex and acetate cylinders

TMS lightweight Perspex/acetate cylinder probesFood Technology Corporation’s TMS lightweight Perspex and acetate cylinder probes enable penetration tests to be undertaken up to a maximum force of 500N. The AOAC Bloom is the standard fixture used for gelatin Bloom testing.

The use of Perspex means temperature sensitive texture measurements can be undertaken, obtaining accurate, repeatable results.

Several of these probes have radiused edges helping prevent cutting or breaking of the sample and are ideal for use on lower capacity load cells due to their low mass.

Custom designs and geometries are available on request.

For gel sample preparation and presentation (including Bloom strength jars), see our range of gel testing fixtures.

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.

At the University of Saskatchewan, we are the proud owners of three generations of Food Technology Corporation texture equipment, all of which are still in working condition.

We are looking forward to future innovations from FTC.
