FRTS Food Texture Analyzer/Tester

FRTS Capacity: 1 lbf, 11 lbf, 22 lbf

The FRTS food texture analyzer/tester features touch screen programming and automatically tests food and non-food samples. Select from a list of foods or food standards. Use programmable mode to customize force, speed and displacement parameters and save as favorite. The analyzer also operates in manual mode.

The FRTS food texture analyzer/tester can apply a specific force limit, move a specific displacement relative to the table or move a specific distance from the point of contact. Perform one or two cycles. Up to six custom configurations can be saved to the favorites. A variety of probes and Force Recorder Professional (FRTS Version) software are included.

Force Data Analysis Tools

Test data can be saved to USB flash drives or output to a computer for analysis by Force Recorder software. Force Recorder captures 1000 data/second, plots a force vs. displacement graph and calculates hardness, viscosity, cohesiveness, adhesiveness, springiness, gumminess, fracturability and chewiness.
