In the last 20 years, our simple to use philosophy has benefited over 5000 customers engaged in activities ranging from routine product quality assurance to fundamental research. This philosophy has been enhanced in the plus range, where many powerful analytical tools increase the instruments capability and yet reduce your test and analysis time.
Texture analysis is the mechanical testing of food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, adhesives and other consumer products either in compression or in tension. The TA.HDplus Heavy Duty Texture Analyser assesses textural properties by capturing force, distance and time data at a rate of up to 500 points per second which is then displayed by fully integrated Exponent 32-bit software. This powerful and versatile Texture Analyser completely satisfies the increasing demands for accurate, repeatable and quantifiable textural information and stands as a significant evolution from single-parameter to multi-functional computer controlled instruments to carry out a wide range of measurements.
The TA.HDplus uses a range of different probes and fixtures according to the required test method. Each probe or fixture is designed for a specific group of applications, and can be attached to the texture analysers base and/or arm. Samples are either placed on the base of the texture analyser or on the lower fixture or held between two fixtures. In a simple test, the arm of the texture analyser containing a loadcell moves down to penetrate or compress the product, and then returns to its initial position.
The TA.HDplus Texture Analyser is extremely efficient, capable of high-speed testing and boasts a comprehensive software package.
Additional Features and Benefits of the TA.HDplus
With a maximum force capacity of 750kg (7.5kN), the TA.HDplus is the most powerful and versatile dedicated Texture Analyser available today.
A family of intelligent, factory calibrated loadcells down to 5kg provides precision testing to a few grams and makes this instrument the obvious choice for users testing a wide range of products or those users who have undefined future product testing requirements.
The height range and greater testing bed area provide the ability to test much larger samples without compromising accuracy whilst the twin column frame provides the required rigidity to accommodate measurements of considerably higher force for heavy duty applications such as Tensile, Compression, Shear, Extrusion, Friction and Three Point Bend
Many tests are International Standards, such as the Bloom Strength for gelatin gels, whereas others are recogised as standard tests within an industry, such as Texture Profile Analysis for many food products.
To be successful, all of these tests depend upon the integrity of the Texture Analyser, the manufacturing precision of the probe or attachment used and the accuracy of the analytical software to provide the results in a clear, concise format.
The TA.HDplus Texture Analyser, Exponent fourth generation software and the range of over two hundred probes and attachments are the result of two decades experience in the design and manufacture of this equipment.
As well as offering a design service for new attachments, users benefit from free software upgrades and a dedicated applications support team.
Stable Micro Systems constantly
increase the capability of Exponent software by adding testing
procedures, presentation formats and analytical solutions this
being of particular importance for those working in research.
However, many users require simple test and data analysis solutions
for QA or production. So now, two versions are available Exponent
and Exponent Lite. While both versions offer the same basic functions,
Exponent has additional data collection and analysis features and
enhanced security options.
Stable Micro Systems are the only Texture Analyser supplier to offer you:
Stable Micro Systems' advanced technology texture analysers are internationally recognised as the "complete" instrument with their unique ability to be configured to meet the requirements of most International and National Standards as well as industry specific tests.
