Texture: Measure and Analyse Properties

Measure Rupture Force

Rupture force measurement applications using the TA.XTplus Texture Analyser

RUPTURE FORCE can be related to the firmness and brittleness of a product. It is the force that is required to produce a major break/rupture in a sample. It is related to burst force which is the force to come apart suddenly and violently into pieces.

Rupture force measurement can be crucial for such products as medical implants which may be required to resemble soft tissue but must remain intact for the duration of their intended residence. Several other products, such as gel capsules containing vitamins possess bursting as a desirable property but must withstand transport and handling before ultimately bursting in the mouth.

Typical properties that can be obtained from a texture analysis graph:

Work of failure, rupture force, rupture strength, brittleness, elasticity.

The above are only typical examples of rupture force measurement. We can, of course, design and manufacture probes or fixtures that are bespoke to your sample and its specific measurement.

Once your measurement is performed, our expertise in its graphical interpretation is unparalleled - no-one understands texture analysis like we do. Not only can we develop the most suitable and accurate method for the testing of your sample, but we can prepare analysis procedures that obtain the desired parameters from your curve and drop them into a spreadsheet or report designed around your requirements.
