Spherical Probes


 

For determining surface hardness of products such as cheeses, fruits and vegetables, or the fracturability of potato chips, the FTC spherical probe range features precision-engineered stainless steel ball-end probes, and plastic hemispherical probes which replicate squeezing in hand.

This ball design of probe is ideal for tesing products with uneven surfaces.
