Monday, 02 May, 2011 | Supplied by: Bestech Australia Pty Ltd



Texture analysis can highlight quality improvement opportunities throughout the supply chain and in the production process. At the R&D stage, new ingredients can be compared with existing ingredients. In production, texture is used for the measurement and control of temperature, humidity and cooking time.

The Lloyd TA Plus Texture Analyser, combined with the Nexigen Plus texture analysis software, can be used to capture force, time and distance. Parameters such as adhesiveness, chewiness, fracturability, firmness, stringiness and other food processing parameters vital to some foods’ characteristics can be calculated and quantified.

The texture analyser can apply forces up to 100 kg. The analyser has a large working area which has nearly 180 mm throat depth; 8 kHz sampling rate to capture all data points; and a wide extension speed range from 60 µm/s to 21 mm/s. There are multilingual and multiunit options for the TA Texture Analyser, intelligent ‘plug and play’ load cells, automatic diagnostics and calibration checks, and frame stiffness compensation for extension accuracy.

The NexigenPlus software is the hub of any Lloyd Texture Analysis system. The intuitive software program includes a complete standards library for food, cosmetics and packaging testing. A comprehensive multistage test wizard is included as well as a video and still picture capturing system. SPC trend and histogram charts, and data export utility are standard and most significantly, the NexigenPlus software has seamless integration with Microsoft Office.
