  3. Mark-10 Case Study: Assessing Ripeness

    Tinted blue image of an apple being tested for ripeness using a Mark-10 test stand and probe, the text reads 'Food & Beverage Testing Applications: Assessing Ripeness'. Beneath the image is a white box containing Mark-10's logo and the text 'We Are Proud Stockists of Mark-10'. Mark-10 is a USA manufacturer of force and torque measurement instruments established in 1979. In recent years, Mark-10 created a bespoke ripeness-testing solution for an agricultural testing laboratory. The measurement system was designed to improve the accuracy and reliability of testing/ quantifying the ripeness of fruit/ vegetables. The solution has been very effective, enabling the lab to investigate correlations between ripeness and environmental/ agricultural conditions. Continue reading →
  4. Mark-10: Food & Beverage Package Testing

    Image of three lid-less glass bottles above a white box containing Mark-10's logo and the words 'we are proud stockists of Mark-10'. The text on top of the glass bottles reads 'Food & Beverage Testing Applications: Food & Beverage Package Testing' Ensuring that food and drinks packaging/containers provide sufficient seal to preserve freshness while remaining easy to open is crucial to maintaining food safety and reducing waste. Mark-10 has developed an eclectic catalogue of products, including force gauges, torque testers, and test stands, specifically designed to assess the durability and accessibility of packaging. These instruments can be used to measure, amongst other things, the force required to open packets of crisps, the torque necessary to remove threaded bottle caps, and the pressure stacked cartons can withstand.
