The Agrosta ATA® is an affordable and accurate solution designed to meet the texture analysis needs of researchers with a limited budget who conduct a small number of tests per day. With its compact size and user-friendly operation, it provides reliable results for various applications.

  • Available in 20 N (0.10 Newtons resolution) or 50 N (0.250 Newtons resolution) capacity
  • Fine tuning resolution: 1 rotation adjusts the Z elevation by 0.5 mm (resolution of 0.01 mm)
  • Dimensions: 32.5 cm x 8.5 cm x 8.5 cm
  • Maximum sample height: 12 cm
  • Maximum sample width: 4 cm
  • Optional beaker size: diameter 35 mm x height 15 mm
  • Includes:
    • 4 standard metallic tips (additional tips available based on specific requirements)
    • 1 removable table (if necessary)
Operating Mode: Using the Agrosta Analog Texture Analyzer is simple and straightforward:
  • Place your sample on the table or inside the beaker (if chosen).
  • Unscrew the micrometer until the fine tuning table is completely closed (Z = 0).
  • Loosen the tray blocking screw and position the tip in close proximity to the sample surface (less than 1 mm distance).
  • Adjust the micrometer to lightly touch the sample without applying pressure (if pressure is applied, unscrew slightly).
  • Adjust the micrometer to achieve the desired stroke.
  • The dynamometer always stores the maximum reading. To reset the dynamometer to zero, press the button located on the device.
Example (Bloom Test): To perform a bloom test:
  • Place the tip in contact with the gel.
  • Screw the micrometer by 4 mm.
  • Read the dynamometer value on the grams scale, which represents the Bloom index.
Complete Set for Gel Strength Testing (Bloom): For gel strength testing according to the Bloom value standard, this set includes:
  • Agrosta ATA® Analog Texture Analyzer with a 10 N capacity.
  • Two cylindrical pistons with a diameter of 12.7 ± 0.1 mm, featuring a flat pressure surface with a sharp bottom edge.
  • Two bottles with an internal diameter of 59 ± 1 mm and a height of 85 mm.
