Lloyd TA-1 food texture analyser
Bestech Australia has released a cost-effective texture analyser from Lloyd, the TA-1. It is easy to use and capable of providing rapid and detailed texture analysis on test applications up to 1 kN. The test system can be used to evaluate the textural properties of a wide range of products.
Textural analysis is an important step in the production process for continuous improvements and quality improvement opportunities. The TA-1 analyser is suitable for testing compressive, tensile, shear, extrusive, puncture and hardness tests within food and pharmaceutical testing applications. It is capable of measuring these properties due to the change in process variations, such as temperature, humidity and cooking time.
The device also features a large working area for testing a larger sample, thus providing flexibility for a wide range of applications. It offers load accuracy of ±0.5% and a high-speed data sampling rate up to 8 kHz. Users can program up to 10 test set-ups and store up to 600 test results for easy traceability.
All purchases of Lloyd instruments include built-in test software for data analysis and enhanced performance. The advanced NexyGENPlus data analysis software is recommended for upgrade as it can interface directly with Excel, Word and current operating systems. It also provides capabilities to capture force, distance and time during the tests, allowing the calculation of some textural parameters such as: adhesion force, firmness, modulus, adhesiveness, fracturability, resilience, chewiness, gumminess, springiness, cohesiveness, hardness and stringiness.
