VOLSCAN PROFILER ACCESSORIES

Universal Product Support

One of a number of features which have been added to the VolScan Profiler is the option of using the Universal Product Support.

VolScan Profiler Universal Product Support components

This accessory greatly extends the range of products which can be held within the instrument in order to be successfully tested. It provides a myriad of support solutions by presenting a 100mm diameter base with an array of pins of differing thicknesses and lengths. 

The choice and arrangement of spikes and skewers depend on the sample dimensions and texture (e.g. brittleness, softness), weight, centre of gravity and contact area with the base. The aim is to provide vertical stability without damaging the sample structure and thereby allowing an accurate measurement of its dimensions and volume to be recorded during the test.

A few examples of various products, with their differing recommended pin arrangements and rationale for their choice, are shown below.

VolScan product test samples

1: Soft and long product requiring support through its length; three medium spikes add extra support for stability of product base.

2: Soft yet heavy product requires long support and the spikes to be positioned wider apart; medium length spikes provide stability and distribute weight to avoid product sagging.

3: Where sample volume is small and uniform in size and shape, multiple pieces can be mounted and tested together on a skewer to provide a fast average result.

4: Where the product is brittle yet wide and has limited base contact, a row of small thin spikes is advised with the use of the top pin for vertical support.
