TVT Texture Analyzer accessories
A wide range of accessories is available, making the TVT 6700 a very versatile analyzer for various texture and sensory characteristics in many different types of samples.
The probe is what the TVT uses to analyze the sample. As the probe comes into contact with the sample the instrument will measure the force needed to bend, compress, break, extend or displace the sample. To get the right information about your sample you need the right type of probe. Perten offers a wide range of probes to suit your application.
Rigs are used to hold products and to give them the right position. We offer a range of standard rigs and can customize rigs for your specific application.
Texture analyzer probe accessories
The choice of the probe is important in order to get reproducible test results, and we will assist you in finding the right probe for your product. The probes displayed below are samples of what we can offer, and custom made probes are also available.
|Cylinder probes||Conical probes||Spherical probes|
|This is the most common type of probe and they are used for most puncture, compression, adhesiveness and extrusion tests.
The diameter chosen of the probe is depending of the product to be tested and the type of measurement to be done.
|The conical probes are used to test plastic and soft products, e.g. to simulate the spreading of butter.||The spherical probes are used for soft and sensitive products, often to simulate a finger pressing down into the product.|
|Compression plates||Break Probe||Warner Bratzler blade|
|These probes are used for compression, adhesiveness and extrusion tests.
The probes are mostly used for semi-liquid products like yogurt or for irregularly shaped products like pasta shapes.
|The Break Probe is used with Three Point Bend Rig to test fracturability and break strength.||These probes are used to test the cutting force and hardness of products.
The flat knife blades are used for meat products, vegetables, and cheese.
Texture analyzer rig accessories
Rigs are used to hold products and to give them the right position. Some probes are always used with a rig, and we will help you to find the right rig for your products.
The rigs below are the standard rigs available, and custom made rigs are also common.
|Three Point Bend Rig||Heavy Duty Stand|
|The Three-Point Bend Rig is used with the Break Probe for fracturability tests.||The Heavy Duty Stand is used for tensile tests, cutting strength and hardness of products.
It enables the probe to completely penetrate the product.
|Self Tightening Roller Grip||Parallel Clamp|
|The Self Tightening Roller Grip is used for tensile tests for noodles or pasta.||The Parallel Clamp can be used for tensile test of ham.|
