P/50 直徑50 mm圓柱型探頭
大面積的柱型探頭， 可用於非破壞或破壞性測試， 適用於評估樣品整體的結構特性， 如肉塊及其加工製品的整體硬度（Hardness）、黏聚性(Cohesiveness）、表面黏著性（Adhesiveness）、彈性（Springiness）等指標。
Compression platens are used for tests on self-supporting products such as gels, fruit, cheese and cake, and also on packaging. Direct or bulk compression tests require the test sample to be smaller than the compression platen and measure compression/recovery, failure mode and visco-elastic creep characteristics. Imitative results such as product freshness can also be determined from the tests.
