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.

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.
