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.
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.
