  • Advantages of assessing blueberry, cherry, and tomato quality with TR TURONI durometers

    Advantages of assessing blueberry, cherry, and tomato quality with TR TURONI durometers

    Measuring the firmness of fruit flesh is one of the most important parameters to determine the shelf-life of a product. This parameter is usually measured with a penetrometer, which is very easy to use as it measures the strength necessary to penetrate the flesh of a fruit. "But there are products that are not suitable for measuring with penetrometers. This is why other tools, called durometers, have been developed to determine flesh firmness/elasticity and which have been used in the industrial sector for some time to measure the hardness of rubber," reports Enrico Turoni from TR Turoni.
