TMS Container Grips

 TMS container grips	The TMS container grips fixture is used in tests where semi-solid or thick liquid samples are analyzed in their consumer packaging container or other collection vessel.

Four soft grip rubber arms hold containers from 10mm to 70mm in diameter firmly. This is critical in measuring adhesion properties of viscous liquids during the return (tension) cycle of testing, where prevention of lifting is required.

Presenting the sample within its supplied container is especially useful when doing extrusion or penetration testing on thick liquids - grips eliminate the variability that would be caused by disturbing the product when moving it to a different container. It also speeds up the testing process by eliminating extra steps.

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 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.
