TMS multiple probe fixture

 TMS multiple probe fixture	The TMS multiple probe fixture consists of matching upper and lower parts to penetration test multiple individual samples of baton-shaped products.

The upper accessory has an array of 20 stainless steel needle tipped rods arranged in rows of pairs. The lower fixture aligns flat raised supporting surfaces to present the product sample(s) to an individual needle probe. By placing a sample across the supports, bridging the gap, the middle of the sample is presented to the probe, with clearance below to allow for complete penetration.

If required, the pitch of the needles and supports may be modified to accommodate other products – contact FTC with your own specification.

Trusted by customers across the world

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.

Excellent customer service. Consistently followed up and offered help without asking. Relatively low priced - provides good value.
