Analytic Versatile Texture Analyzer

piloted by a PC

Version for Tensile testing available as option

The Agrosta®Texture Analyzer works connected to a PC, linked to

a powerful software that determines most materials characteristics

The Agrosta®Texturometer Version 2 has been designed in 2016, it is a simple and

reliable tool to determine :

Freshness, spreadability, Tenderness, Springiness, Gumminess, Hardness, Firmness,

Consistency, Fracturability, Creaminess, Mouthfeel, Consistency,Tackiness, Drip Point,

Springback, Adherence, Pliability, Coherence, Viscosity, Creep, Breaking point, Compressibility,

Rubberiness, Bloom Strehgth, Crispiness, Density, Lumpiness, Needle Sharpness, Slipperiness,

Smoothness, Softness, Surface rupture, Structural memory, Relaxation under load, Polymer

Cure etc

of a wide variety of Food Products, packagings and soft materials

We have designed this machine in order to provide a very simple and efficient tool for an affordable price Adapted, but not limited to : - Bakery products and bread texture analysis - Test of vacuum level in coffee packets (designed for Jacobs group) - Citrus ripeness testing (designed for Pepsico) - Glue viscosity measurement for battery manufacturers - High level research on fruits and vegetables (designed for government research centers) - Testing machine for a frozen food manufacturer - Chicken breasts hardness testing for the biggest US poultry genetician - Individual rice grains testing for an Indian university - Graphene compound cohesiveness for an Australian Research Center + Rupture resistance of a thin film in graphene oxide - Bloom test on medical resins And many more…. From research point of vue (deep analysis of few samples) The software, collects the pressure 25 times per second, records it in a chart(can be exported to Excel, Word, Xml), and displays a curve. From production / quality control point of vue With the same software, you can decide to collect only the maximum pressure of each sample, classify the data by batch, and calculate statistics for each batch. Provided with : - A software for Windows XP, 7, 8, 10 - 1 Beaker (Can be replaced by a base table) -          One base table (You can choose to use a beaker or a plate) - 5 different tips according to your requests (We have more than 100 tips designs) - A power supply & a USB cable - A certificate of conformity - A manual

Agrosta Texture Analyzer principle : - First of all, you can adjust the home position thanks to the upper endstop, and adjust the stroke to the size of your samples - So with Agrosta Texture analyzer, you will save time on large batches - The motor starts the movement according to the high speed you have defined - Once the sensor reaches the sample, the pressure starts to increase - Once the pressure on the probe reaches the value defined by you in the software, the motor switches to the low speed mode you have defined - The motor continues making the stroke you have defined - Data are recorded each 10 milliseconds, and a curve is displayed - When measuring factors like springiness, or gumminess, you can parameter a second pressure on sample - Then the texture analyzer goes back (Stroke defined + backlash compensation), waits (time adjustable in the software), and starts a second pressure with new parameters - The curve is displayed, and you obtain a double curve (You can compare the 2 maximums in order to have a good indication of springiness or form memory) New in September 2017 : The PULL mode You can now ask the tray to go to a precise position with 2 arrows in the software (UP and DOWN), and then start a PULL cycle at a determined speed - This is very useful for Raft Hook test, or stickiness testing - The curve is displayed in negative values
Optional tensile strength module, additional beakers tables or probes, Optional colorimeter on base table, optional automatic lab scale.. ask for offer
