TA.HDplus Texture Analyser

Our heavy duty twin column Texture Analyser for high force applications.

The TA.XTplus Texture Analyser

The TA.HDplus is the instrument of choice for testing with forces up to 750kg.f (7.5kN)

It is capable of measuring virtually any physical product characteristic such as hardness, fracturability, adhesiveness, gel strength, extensibility of foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, gels, adhesives and other consumer products.

The TA.HDplus is commonly employed to measure and quantify fundamental, empirical and imitative tests in both compression and tension, covering those relating to texture analysis, materials properties as well as effects of rheology of solid, semi-solid, viscous liquid, powder and granulate materials.

The TA.HDplus offers a maximum force capacity of 750kg (7.5kN), and a family of intelligent, factory calibrated loadcells down to 0.5kg. It can perform precision testing to a few grams without compromising accuracy, whilst providing the required rigidity to accommodate measurements of considerably higher force for heavy duty applications.

The greater testing bed area and height range offer the ability to test much larger samples within a twin column frame, making this instrument the obvious choice for users testing a wide range of products, or for those who have an uncertain future product testing requirement.

Coupled with easy-to-use Exponent software, this versatile instrument is extraordinarily well-engineered for long-term reliability and accuracy.
