Other industry sectors for texture analysis applications

Consumer products in sectors other than foods for human consumption are also judged by sensory interaction – finger feel, skin feel particularly. In the case of pet food and animal feel, mouthfeel is also influential in acceptance by the animal and hence success of the product brand.  Measurement of the physical textual properties of these products, such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, is essential to the understanding of the impact of their ingredients, formulation and processing on final product quality. FTC’s computer-controlled texture analysis systems come with software to enable research facilities to perform highly specialized texture testing whatever the market sector, and educational establishments to add practical scientific analysis to product design disciplines. Explore these other industry capabilities and solutions in more detail:

As a seasonal vegetable processor, understanding crop maturity and the accuracy of this measurement is key to staying ahead of crop and knowing when to make the move from value to premium product as harvest time constraints permit.

The TU units provided by FTC give us the accuracy to work to much tighter tolerances, replacing older less accurate analogue equipment which in turn can affect final product grading and profitability.

The units are well designed, very low maintenance and are backed up with a strong support service which will allow them to provide many years of accurate, reliable service.

Our experience with FTC has been more than satisfactory, not only for the quality of the equipment you’ve got but for the post selling service that has proved to be excellent.

Any problem that we had, it took nothing more than a simple mail or phone call to have your immediate answer. We want to thank you very much for the quality of service provided.

I have been using the TMS-Pro mechanical tester in our undergraduate biological materials property course for the past 3 years. The simple setup and operation of the TMS-Pro allows my students to focus on learning the theoretical underpinnings of mechanical properties instead of fighting with a finicky test system.

An added bonus is working with Shirl and his amazing team at Food Technology Corporation. They respond almost immediately to questions and inquiries and are always friendly and helpful.
