September 10, 2012

fex0912ts20_inbody.jpgUsed with a Brookfield CT3 texture analyzer, the Brookfield TA-PTF pizza test fixture tests the extensibility and tensile breaking strength of pizza crust and similar food items; measurements serve as an indicator that corresponds with the firmness and stringiness experienced as pizza is pulled away from the teeth and palate. The unit operates in both compression and tension modes. TexturePro CT software enables operators to automate test procedures and generate analytical data.
