TMS multiple needle probe

 TMS multiple needle probe	The TMS multiple needle probe consists of nine 120mm long stainless steel needles with a 15º taper at the tip. Each needle has an individual diameter of 2 mm and is removable to aid cleaning and provide food technologists with configuration flexibility.

The whole assembly has a diameter of 50 mm, which comfortably travels through the neck of standard 1lb (454 g) preserve or jam jars making it ideal for in container testing of jams, jellies, pickles and preserves. These products are very inhomogeneous in texture supporting varying sizes of fruit and vegetable pieces and, as such, cannot be measured easily through single point penetration.
