SALE SpotOn Consistometer

Portable texture meter for rapid QA on the shop floor!

The SpotOn Consistometer is a powerful handheld tool for QA, trouble shooting and R&D in the food and other industries. It bridges the gap between old analog measurements and full bench top texture analyzers. Precision force, depth and temperature sensors are combined with a microprocessor and digital readout enabling instant display of averages and standard deviation along with on-the-fly error checking for reliable results. Features include full data recording capabilities for PC based analysis and documentation. Applications include consistency measurements for shortening, margarine, icing, dough, cheese, yogurt, peanut butter, jelly and more. SpotOn
Unique Features:
  • On-board microprocessor calculates and displays:
    • the average force of a measurement;
    • the mean of a group of measurements;
    • the Standard Deviation of a group of measurements;
    • the equilibrated temperature of the measured sample
  • Precision load cell and non-contact depth sensor simultaneously measure penetration force and penetration depth, while sample temperature is also measured.
  • Displays instantaneous penetration speed to guide operator for repeatable results
  • Included PC software allows configuration for many products by setting the desired penetration rate, depth of measurement, type of probe tip and specification ranges; all of which can be preloaded onto the instrument
  • Data can be downloaded as an Excel® file for analysis and plotting
  • Interchangeable probe tips can be used to adapt the instrument to different products
  • Includes shaft extension for depths up to 12 inches (30cm)
  • Patent Pending - 1 year warranty - Made in USA

  • Quick quantitative measurements of product or ingredient consistency
