The Tenderometer for testing pea maturity is the world's most widely used tenderometer. These systems have proven to be the most dependable, accurate and trouble-free instruments ever created for grading pea quality, in the process from field to fork.
Accurate readings can save thousands of pounds per day for a medium to large operation and quickly pay back the initial investment. The Tenderometer can be used in the field when powered by a mains voltage generator, which we also supply.
Simply load the sample and press start. The system automatically clears the last reading, completes a test cycle and displays the results in industry standard units. For over 50 years, pea processors worldwide have relied on these Tenderometers
to determine harvest dates, buy on grade and position harvesters for the most effective crop yield. With profits at stake, a point or two off the standard can be very costly. Read about how Eyemouth Freezers Ltd save nearly £2m a season with the Tenderometer here.
Designed to indicate tenderness in industry standard units, the measurements given by the Tenderometer correlate directly to pea maturity grades.
Easy to Use
Simply load the peas, shut the door, press start, record the reading, unload and repeat - that's it.
Compared to other conventional tenderometer systems, the readings are taken in a much tighter range, making the average significantly more precise.
