Lloyd TA1 Texture Analyser for food texture analysis

Thursday, 06 September, 2012 | Supplied by: Bestech Australia Pty Ltd



The Lloyd TA1 Texture Analyser from Bestech Australia is a cost-effective solution for performing rapid and detailed texture analysis in applications requiring up to maximum 1 kN applied force.

The TA1 allows users to compare the effect of changing one ingredient by measuring the resultant changes in texture. Other causes of changes in product texture, such as changes in the manufacturing process, cooking temperature, humidity, storage time and/or process timing or other process variables, can also be analysed using the TA1.

The TA1 primarily measures the force generated by subjecting the sample to a programmed displacement vs time profile. When combined with the Lloyd NexygenPlus texture analysis software, complex texture tests can be programmed and analysed easily. Parameters such as adhesion, chewiness, firmness, hardness, modulus, resilience and stringiness are calculated as a standard procedure. Their values can be displayed in user-selected formats - graphical and tabular - on the host desktop PC or laptop.

The analyser has a force precision of ±0.5% of 1% of load cell rating and a data sampling rate of 8 kHz. It is available in standalone, automatic or manual control. The TA1 is supplied with a range of jigs, probes and fixtures and has a 180 mm throat depth.

The NexygenPlus software has a large library of standard test methods complying with international test standards, intuitive user-configurable test facilities, video and still image capture for visual analysis, SPC for continuous monitoring of process capability parameters, Microsoft Office integration for seamless transfer of data to Windows Packages and test automation and batch testing. It is Windows 7 compatible.
