FRTS Food Texture Analyzer/Tester

FRTS Capacity: 1 lbf, 11 lbf, 22 lbf

FRTS performs a variety of food tests

  1. Two bite test (texture profile analysis)
  2. Compress a specific displacement
  3. Compress to a specific force value
  4. Compress to a specific sample height

Standard Features

  • Touch screen operation programs force, displacement, speed and triggers
  • Speed: 0.1mm – 10.0mm/sec
  • USB output to flash drives or computer
  • Easy to clean stainless steel
  • USB cable, 50mm and 100mm shafts, disk, conical, sphere and wedge probes, and Force Recorder software included

The FRTS food texture analyzer/tester features a touch screen 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 and save up to six frequently used tests. FRTS also operates in manual mode.
Select one or two cycle tests. Record the compression or compression and return. Perform two bite tests, compress to a specific displacement, specific force value, or specific sample height.

Force Data Analysis Tools

Test data can be saved to USB flash drives or output to a computer for analysis by Force Recorder (ZT-RP). Force Recorder captures 1,000 data/second, plots a force vs. time graph and calculates hardness, viscosity, cohesiveness, adhesiveness, springiness, gumminess, fracturability and chewiness.
