GST-01 Gel Strength Tester

Gel strength can be defined as a measure of the ability of a colloidal dispersion to develop and retain a gel form based on its resistance to shear.

The gel strength test was originated from surimi industry. In the test, a punch probe of a specific diameter and length is used to compress the surface of a gel specimen at a constant deformation rate, until puncture occurs. Normally the speed used is 60mm/min and probe φ5mm.

 Gel strength is based on force×distance, thus having a unit of “gcm”.

Test Principle

A punch probe with diameter of 5mm is driven by gel strength tester at a speed of 60mm/min, to compress the surface of a gel specimen. The force max during the process and the displacement is measured and recorded. 

Technical Features

GST-01 Gel Strength Tester is a PLC controlled unit(industrial level stable) and HMI touch screen operated. Precision ball lead screw mechanism ensures good and steady speed and displacement control. Its specially designed program can be used for different parameters concerning gel strength test.
