Operating the TVT Texture Analyzer

  1. Ensure the load cell is tared.
  2. Attach suitable probe to the instrument. Use a rig if required. Calibrate the probe position.
  3. Position the sample centrally underneath the probe.
  4. Select an appropriate product and test method and start the measurement.
  5. Force is applied (compression or extension) and plotted as a function of time or distance. Test results are shown on screen with statistical information calculated automatically. Test results and measurement data can easily be exported to a spreadsheet program for further analysis.
