Texture Analysis in Action: Probe Converters & Adapters

Quick twist probe converter

For texture analyser users who are looking for ways to increase their sample testing throughput and improve the convenience of probe attachment to their texture analyser, we have two innovative options.  

Users can now choose to have a converter fitted to their probes to allow for quick removal and replacement between tests. 

Either ‘magnetic’ or ‘quick-twist’ probe converters are available, in batches of 5. These quick probe removal and replacement options are the first of their kind in texture analysis and support the requirement for test procedures that have efficiency and/or convenience in mind.

Whilst a magnetic coupling might be the preferred and simplest attachment action, it is not suited to the testing of samples that do not have a flat surface, or samples that have an adhesive force measurement exceeding 1.5kg. However, the ‘quick-twist’ probe attachment is suitable for any application and all loadcell models. 

These converters have Community Design Registration – proving our commitment to new innovation testing solutions.
