Karmer Shear Cell

Two versions of the Kramer Shear Cell are
The 10 bladed HDP/KS10 must be
used with a 50Kg loadcell or greater. The 5
bladed HDP/KS5 can be used with a 25Kg or
30Kg loadcell for soft products but a 50Kg
loadcell or greater is recommended. Easy
locating adapters ensure fast blade removal
for cleaning and replacement or further
testing. Cells have perspex front panels for
precise positioning of the blades close to the
sample, and easy removal for cell cleaning.
The cell is used for analysing multiparticle
products such as cereals and pickles
in sauce together with fruit and vegetables.
This test applies a combination of
compression, shearing and extrusion
The Kramer shear cell simulates a single bite on
foodstuffs and provides information about bite
characteristic, crispness and firmness. It is used for
meat and fish products, small sized fruit and vegetables
as well as for cereals and snacks like potato chips.
The 5 or 10 shear blades drive at a constant speed
through the specimen material, compressing, shearing
and extruding it through the slotted base. The test is
made on a defined sample quantity. The multiple blades
provide a measurement on several positions at the same
time thus local texture deviations are compensated for
with this method.
