TA.XTExpress Texture Analyzer

Capable of measuring the physical and textural characteristics of many consumer packaged goods, the TA.XTExpress Texture Analyzer offers cost effective analysis for simple texture measurement applications.

The TA.XTExpress Texture Analyzer works with Stable Micro Systems' industry-best software and provides comprehensive texture analysis reporting capabilities.

With a choice of two software programs or keypad operation, the instrument is easily configured to meet the user's exact requirements. Test profiles are stored for immediate use and the results analyzed automatically using either 'built-in' standards, such as TPA and Bloom or product specific procedures.

Measurements can be taken 'on-line' or in laboratory settings. The results form the foundation of on-going Quality Control procedures. This information may be used, for example, to measure textural quality, identify source and batch variation and predict consumer acceptability.

The TA.XTExpress Texture Analyzer is controlled by either a keypad or by Exponent Lite Express or Expression texture analysis software.

• Two software programs are available (see main Products page for a full feature comparison):

• Exponent Lite Express software offers project-based data recording and analysis tools with full post-test analysis capabilities.

Expression is the ideal software program for users who want to measure standard textural parameters without the need for complicated post-test analysis.

The TA.XTExpress Enhanced Texture Analyzer has a 5kg.f capacity (500g.f optional) in compression and tension with a measurement resolution of better than 0.1g. It has a speed range 0.1 - 10.00mm/s and a stroke of 0.1 - 135mm.
