Our Agrosta Texture Analyzer has the best value for money worldwide. It is a very simple, robust and efficient device designed to characterize firmness, hardness or springiness… of most food and soft materials We propose more than 100 tips, tables or beakers adapted to client’s requests. Specific probes can be made on demand within a few hours on one of our 3D printers Our texturometer comes with : - 1 beaker or 1 table depending on your requirements - 3 different tips to be choosen within the more than 100 tips we propose, or customized with  3D printing - A power supply with plug for North america - A certificate of conformity - A software compatible with Windows XP, 7, 8, 10 (Can be customized..) - A calibration holder + calibration software (If you want to recalibrate the machine, you need to purchase locally a 1Kg calibrated weight) Texture analyzis principle : - You can define up to 10 parameters through the software - You can record test profiles under Excel format - There are 3 test systems : The PUSH mode (Single or double pressure), The PULL mode, and the constant pressure mode PUSH MODE : - The machine comes in contact with the sample according to the high speed defined - Then, when the contact pressure defined is reached, it starts the stroke as defined in 1/10e mm in the soft - The pressure is displayed each 50 milliseconds - Then the machine goes back to Home position - If you want to measure springiness, or form memory, you can define the parameters for a second stroke - In this case, the machine goes back according to a defined stroke, waits a time defined in the soft, and starts a second pressure PULL MODE : - Use the arrows in the software in order to place the tip in the right position (on the surface or inside the sample) - Define the Pull speed - Launch the cycle : The tray goes back to home position while measuring pressures each 50 milliseconds CONSTANT PRESSURE MODE : - Define the value of pressure to be applied - Define the time of Hold - Start a cycle - The software provides the stroke of deformation in 0.1mm Data can be exported to Excel, Word, Xml, the maximum pressure is automatically calculated and stored (If you want to test big batches, like in the fruits sector for example, you can store only the maximal pressure for each fruit - Then you obtain the statistics for the batch : Standard deviation, average, mini, maxi..) The machine can be used for any test according to international norms, like BLOOM, AOCS, Raft Hook, Penetrometry..     Catalogue and price for 2hours skype training

Agrosta Texture Analyser
From PEPSICO, USA : This is a fantastic machine that will be put to good use within the next couple weeks. From JDE, Netherlands : After some tests we managed to find correlations between our standard equipment and Agrosta device - Based on this I would like to order 5 additional machines From ORGANIC BLUE, USA : Long story short, we absolutely thrilled with the machines. They are everything we expected and then some. We’ve been using them for a couple of weeks now and are completely comfortable using them. Whenever anyone asks what I recommend, I can assure you that AGROSTA will the first words to come out of my mouth. From TOTAL BERRY, UK : We have received the first machine thank very much - I would like to order another one please that is exactly the same From OCEAN SPRAY, USA : First off I must say it is quite a versatile machine, it has done a good job of streamlining the process of both sizing and firmness testing thus far. Furthermore, retests performed on random batches have so far come up nearly identical to the results of the first tests, which is a great sign. From SouthernCrops, Argentina : Looks Great and very useful !! Que buen equipo!! From OSBORNE, Spain : Hemos realizado pruebas con el equipo y estamos muy contentos..
