ripeness/hardness tester/penetrometer FHT-15 is
our new top-product. It is small in dimension, easily to transport
and light in weight. You can used the device for strawberries, cherries,
grapes, peaches, bananas, apricots, plums, melons, citrus, pears
and kiwis. It also can be used for vegetables (for
example avocados). It helps you in determination and monitoring
the optimal harvest time and the softening during storage. The advantage
of digital penetrometer is the higher accuracy and a higher resolution
in the measurement as opposed to an analog penetrometer.
can use the device as a hand measuring instrument on site or for
the quality control during transport. It also can be used for laboratory
experiments. It consists of a probe with measuring head as well
as a digital display showing the measuring results in a
resolution of 0,1 degrees of hardness. The FHT-15 corresponds
to the standards DIN 53505, ISO 7619 and ASTM D 2240.
Our equipment has a RS-232 interface to transfer the measured values
to a laptop or a PC. Software
and cable (SW2) are optional available in our shop.
ripeness tester works in three different ranges:
low range (small and large fruits for example strawberries,
cherries, peaches...), middle range (small, large,
firm and hard fruits for example grapes, apricots, avocados...)
and high range (large, firm and hard fruits for
example pears, nectarine, avocados...).
