TMS AACC cylinder probes

TMS AACC cylinder probesStandardized aluminium cylinders developed by the American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC) for the measurement of breadcrumb and other bakery products. These compression probes have smooth radiused edges to their contact faces to avoid penetrating the surface of the test sample.

The dimensions of this probe also makes it a useful general purpose accessory for performing back extrusion tests on semi-solids in their own containers.

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.

I have been working with FTC for the past 3 years, we bought in that lapse of time 2 texture analyzers with different probes fixtures for all kind of applications at our Monterrey Plant. We have always been able to count on the technical support of FTC who kindly answers our requests in a prompt manner and with the best disposition.

As we continue developing our process to achieve better results at our company, we will for sure rely on FTC for technical support and equipment upgrades that will deliver us the best possible results.
