Brookfield Penetrometers and Texturometers
In certain sectors such as the food industry, the characterization of viscosity is not always sufficient.
This is why professionals talk about consistency and texture and therefore need specific adapted devices: these are the penetrometers and the texturometer.
- Penetrometer :
Determine the resistance to penetration of solid or semi-solid products such as fats, waxes, creams, toothpastes, jams, cheeses and other products from different industries by measuring the penetration into the product with a needle or of a cone as a function of time.
Determine the texture of various materials, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and food. The principle is to use a plunging object (cylindrical, conical, butter cutting wire, or one of the many optional accessories available) and to measure the reaction force of the product at a known displacement, or conversely to measure the displacement of the object plunging into the product as a function of the applied load. The device allows a simple and fast measurement, cyclic measurements (TPA for example).
There are two families of devices: the CT3 with a fixed measuring cell (choice of 100g to 50 kg) or the CTX texturometer with interchangeable sensors (from 50g to 100 kg) allowing use on a wide range of products. It is also possible to control the texturometer via software.
This tool facilitates the realization of multiple tests, the configuration of the test methods, the recording of data, to visualize the curves and especially to carry out numerous calculations allowing to obtain for example the firmness, the elasticity, the stickiness ... About fifty different parameters can be calculated according to your needs and the method used.
This instrument is used to measure the consistency of products with a viscous texture by measuring the distance traveled by the product on an inclined plane in a given time. In this section of our catalog, we also offer various accessories, including a stand for viscosity cup without handle. This is available in three models.
Since its creation in 1992, Labomat Essor has grown to become one of the pillars of the distribution sector for scientific and specialty materials for research, quality control and production. The company operates in France, but collaborates with large international production companies such as the Brookfield Ametek brand.
The products sold meet European and international standards and have been previously approved by our team of technical experts. Our commitment to satisfy our customers as well on the quality of our instruments and products, as on our services. Our team of technical sales engineers and technicians is then at your disposal for technical advice, a request for an estimate, a test or demonstrations. Our experts have undergone initial training which has allowed them to fully familiarize themselves with all the products we sell. They are thus able to answer all your problems.
For the repair of your instruments, their maintenance and their calibration which must be carried out at least once a year, our after-sales service team is at your disposal. These services are valid for the entire range of products that we market. Our interventions are carried out in the workshop or on your site wherever it is located in France. We can also travel to neighboring countries and are able to intervene internationally. Scientific equipment, in particular that for the characterization of the physical properties of materials and surfaces, is not easy to handle,
Labomat and its team thus offer technical training on viscosity and rheology, aging and corrosion, color and gloss. Technical training days are available to Labomat customers. On our company website, we keep you informed of new products and we give you access to a detailed description of all the material we sell. With a large stock of all the references at our disposal, we guarantee you a high availability of your order and a fast delivery.
