TMS dual extrusion cell

TMS dual extrusion cellThis set of fixtures and accessories provides a complete solution for extrusion tests on semi-solids and viscous liquids.

The test set consists of three 50mm diameter sample presentation containers - allowing technologists to make tests on prepared samples in triplicate. The containers may be mounted to the supplied bottom plate that allows easy fitting within the TMS Standard fixture table.

Each container has a set of four base discs:

  • 1 x blank (no orifice) for back extrusion
  • 1 x 2mm central hole for forward extrusion
  • 1 x 6mm central hole for forward extrusion
  • 1 x 8mm central hole for forward extrusion

A set of five extrusion discs, 5 mm in thickness - fitted to the crosshead - complete the fixture:

  • The largest 49mm diameter disc is used in forward extrusion tests where the sample is forced through the selected hole in the base plate.
  • The remaining 45 mm, 40 mm, 35 mm and 30 mm diameter discs are to be used in back extrusion tests.

Trusted by customers across the world

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.

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.

My first contact with FTC was through buying texture analyzer equipment as my area of interest is Rheology. We faced a problem operating the appliance. The company tried hard to help us through the internet, but the University thought it was better to send me to the company branch located in England. I received a highly advanced training course for 10 days free of charge. They provided me with programs that operate the equipment along with the information needed.

It was a great effort and outstanding support. I would like to thank Shirl Lakeway and FTC for providing me with this opportunity and for his continuous help. Finally, I encourage researchers who are interested in the physical properties of foods and dairy to choose FTC as it is a respectable and dependable company and offers the best deals concerning prices and training with different languages, such as Arabic for the Middle East.
