Texture Analysis in action: the Multiple Pea Test Rig

Multiple pea hardness test using the TA.XTplus Texture AnalyserThe MULTIPLE PEA TEST RIG (HDP/MPT*) 

rig measures the force to simultaneously penetrate up to 18 samples.

The insert has 18 indentations surrounding a cone which allows the samples to easily locate into the test positions.

Puncture strength and penetration force are measured and the penetration distance set so that the probes penetrate completely through the sample.

Other applications using this rig include beans and confectionery samples.  

*Attachments with code prefix HDP/ must be used in conjunction with HDP/90 Heavy Duty Platform.

We can design and manufacture probes or fixtures for the TA.XTplus texture analyser that are bespoke to your sample and its specific measurement.

Once your measurement is performed, our expertise in its graphical interpretation is unparalleled. Not only can we develop the most suitable and accurate method for the testing of your sample, but we can also prepare analysis procedures that obtain the desired parameters from your curve and drop them into a spreadsheet or report designed around your requirements.
