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

As a Meat Scientist and program leader for the University of Nevada, Reno, I need to ensure that equipment I use in my lab is reliable, durable, versatile, and accurate. For texture analysis of meats, there are many systems available in the market. Over the last 15 years of my career, I¹ve worked with many of them and had great and bad experiences with different brands.

Last year, I decided to try a different system for my lab, the TMS-Pro Texture Analyzer from Food Technology Corporation. The system has all the attributes I was expecting to conduct texture and shear force analysis in a quick and not complicated way. The customer support provided by them is outstanding and their technicians are always ready to walk me through new procedures and initial set up. If you are looking for a reliable system for food texture analysis and special customer service, the TMS-Pro is the system to go for and the Food Technology Corporation is the one that can deliver the support.

Nestle purchased a texture system from Food Technology Corporation in 2006. Since then I have recommended the texture system to several vendors in North and Central America. Staff at FTC was able to develop a simple training manual and procedure for the texture system allowing easy training in short period of time.

From purchasing of equipment through to installation and start-up, the level of personal care and service was remarkable. Shirl Lakeway and his staff at Food Technology Corporation are patient and understanding, and are always at our disposal for any assistance. Since we bought the equipment we have had no problems and feel very secure knowing that we can count on FTC for their support and service.
