CT3 Texture Analyser

Compression and tension testing for rapid QC analysis

The Brookfield CT3 Texture Analyser is a powerful universal testing machine that offers both compression and tensile testing in a much more cost-efficient way than other testers in its class.

Texture Analysis is being used in a variety of applications in different industries and public sectors. This technique is applied to measure the response of a product under controlled mechanical stress conditions.

These conditions mean that a sample can be pushed (compression test) or pulled (tension test) by means of a texture analyser and then measured to analyse what happens.

With the CT3 Texture Analyser you can use the tension and compression mode, alongside a variety of probes and fixtures, to simulate real-life conditions. For example, how hard a material is or when will it break; if it is elastic or more viscous, how will it spread and much more.

How it Works?

Through the compression and tensile data, it can calculate a number of physical properties that have proven to be highly correlated to human sensory evaluation of food and other consumer products, which makes it perfect for most any physical testing requirements.

An extensive history and customer input have contributed to the development of this powerful, low cost, stand-alone Texture Analyser. With six test modes (plus calibration check) and a wide choice of accessories, no other texture analyser has ever done so much without requiring a computer and software!

The CT3 performs like a high-end texture analyser but at a fraction of the cost. Ideal for any R&D and QC up labs, you can expand its uses with your applications - or your testing samples.

Parameters Measured with the CT3 Texture Analyser:

Elasticity, Hardness, Cohesiveness, Burst Strength, Breaking Point, Fracturability, Gel Strength, Ripeness, Yield Point, Spreadability, Tackiness, Consistency, Relaxation, Pliability, Adhesiveness, Firmness.
