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.

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

Easy to switch different load cells. Used it for 5 lab sessions for 68 students this semester and performed well.

The University of Arizona’s Nutritional Sciences Food Lab acquired a Texture Analyzer from Food Technologies about 5 years ago. The company has a great product, which is tailored to food needs. 

We have used the Texture Analyzer for both research projects and as a tool to demonstrate to students how food manufacturers can employ objective testing in product evaluation to show how differing ingredients in the same product can affect quality attributes. Its use adds another dimension to the foods labs.

Drew Lambert has been instrumental in helping with set up for testing and providing support whenever there’s a question. He has been a pleasure to work with and is always accommodating with our needs and schedules.  He has even sent us special attachments for special projects.  We couldn’t ask for a better technical support.  Thanks for a great product and great service.

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.
