Probes

ProbesFood Technology Corporation’s range of probes are available in cylindrical (flat and rounded end), conical, needle and spherical shapes. A selection of material finishes provides choice and compliance to industry requirements. The probe is used as the upper fixture, connected to the loadcell and moves via the crosshead down and into the test sample.

These accessories enable compression, extrusion, penetration and puncture test methods to be performed, by selection of the appropriate design.

General Probe Kit

FTC also offers a recommended general probe kit with a selection of commonly used probes and other specialist fixtures and shearing blades to compress, penetrate, puncture, slice and cut samples.

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.

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.
