TMS spreadability jig

TMS spreadability jigThe TMS butter and margarine spreadability jig is used to measure the spreading (extrusion) texture of table spreads and waxes, or other similar products. Cosmetic or pharmaceutical creams may correlate well to sensory testing with this fixture.

The set comprises a set of three conically recessed sample presentation container s and conical probe, with a matching cone angle of 90 degrees. Prepared sample is forced between the cone surfaces during the compression cycle, initially penetrating, then extruding the product.
