Texture Analyzer 
The texture analyzers help analyzing physical characteristics of various substances and materials. Texture analyzers are applied due to their versatility in areas of research, development or in quality control. The crystalline orientation of a material as a whole builds the specific texture of that material. From that texture different physical characteristics of these materials or substances emerge, such as hardness,Texture Analyzer overview elasticity, deformability or flowability. To examine those physical varieties, the texture analyzers can be equipped with a variety of test probes and features. Indenters with various geometries, bending jigs, pulling tools or cutting tools qualify the texture analyzer as a multifunctional device. Through data interfaces the texture analyzers can be connected to the computer. Thus complex software packages for the texture analyzer allow not only an exact determination of the specific parameters, but the gained data can also be processed to set up graphics, allowing to gain objective, meaningful and repeatable test results. Thus for example in food industries the texture, whether the food can be chewed, and how firm it is to the bite: all these information can be collected by means of the texture analyzer. In areas of the pharmaceutical industry the surface hardness and fracture resistance of pills or liquids and the texture of salves can be determined by means of the texture analyzer. Even during material testing texture analyzers are often used. For example the ability of adhesion and bonding of glues can be easily determined by using the texture analyzer. If you can't find the texture analyzers you are looking for, please contact us and we will help you find the best solution to suit your needs by calling our offices on: UK customers +44(0) 23 809 870 30 / US customers (561) 320-9162 and our technical staff will advise you regarding our measuring instruments. Our engineers and technicians will be happy to help you with the diamond testers, and of course, with the other products in the field of regulation and control, and scales and balances.

Texture Analyzers by Lamy Rheology  Texture Analyzer TEX AN 200 is a high flexibility device to analyze texture and physical characterisitcs  

Ranges of Application:

Hardness testing of food: In order to determine the hardness and flexibility of food, there can be performed penetration tests with the texture analyzer. Therefore the careful selection of the right tool for the texture analyzer is essential. Cylindrical indenters mainly create vertical forces, meanwhile with spherical tools the horizontal forces increase with the cumulative penetration. By selecting the right tool, there can be gained good results by means of the texture analyzer. To determine the resistance of bread for example, the texture analyzer allows determining the CFV (Compressive Force Value). Therefore slice of bread with a specific size will be compressed by a cylindrical tool as long as the compression counts 25%. Thus the collected value helps maintaining quality and can be compared to other products. 

Elasticity of food: The elasticity of certain amounts of pastry or chewing-gum can be determined by using the texture analyzer. By recording a force-path diagram by means of the texture analyzer, the characteristics of these products can be defined very accurately. Thus various formulations, additives and preparation methods can be compared by a texture analyzer in order to gain the perfect result.
