Resistance GEL “BLOOM” Tester

Resistance GEL “BLOOM” Tester

This application is used for Pectin’s, Gelatine, Agar, Gels for food, medicine, cosmetics, pharmaceutical sector. The force of the gel is evaluated as the maximum force or force to penetrate to a chosen depth smaller. Standard probes, such as that required for gelatine tests (according to the ISO Standard) are also used for the evaluation of the strength or breakage characteristics Bloom of gels, where the penetration force of 4 mm is taken as its Bloom value. If it were necessary to measure the breaking force, the gel fragility (elasticity), this test (for the determination of the Bloom force) the test can be configured by means of the Metro TEST Software to continue the penetration after 4 mm to 15 mm. This test KIT is used incorporated into a Texturometer to test Bloom Gel Strength and Gel Strength according to the BS 757, ISO 9665 and GMIA methods.
