CT3 Texture Analyzer…compression and tension testing for rapid QC analysis
|An extensive history and customer input have contributed to the development of the most powerful, low cost, stand-alone Texture Analyzer ever produced.
With six test modes (plus calibration check) and a wide choice of accessories, no other Food Texture Analyzer has ever done so much without a computer and software.
STANDARD TEST MODES
Normal Test: a single compression cycle
Hold Time Test: compress and hold
Cycle Count Test: compress multiple times
Bloom Test: gelatin bloom strength test
TPA Test: texture profile analysis
Tension Test: tensile testing
Static Load Test: calibration check
TEXTURE LOADER SOFTWARE
allows up to ten custom tests and ability to lock parameters
up to 10cm, can accommodate sample up to 22.5cm, almost 9 inches tall. Probe shaft is 8cm from back wall.
CHOICE OF LOAD CELLS
7 measurement ranges up to 50kg
CHOICE OF BASE TABLE
allows for larger samples and more accessory choices
|What’s Included?||What else do I need?|
|The CT3 has a wide variety of probes, fixtures and jigs, which enable it to be very versatile. Brookfield can also custom design fixtures and probes for most applications.
|Fixture used with rotary base table TA-RT-KIT|
|Back Extrusion Cell for displacing applesauce, pudding, yogurt and similar products.||Adhesive Tack Tester for measuring stickiness of pressure sensitive adhesive materials such as tape.||Junior Punch Fixture is small scale holder for punching through flat samples with maximum 12.7mm diameter probe. Hole in fixture is 14mm.|
|Small scale version of Three Point Bend fixture and is used with TA7 blade from general probe kit.||Adjustable Vice Fixture for holding small samples for puncture test. Good for jelly beans, gummy bears, etc.||GMIA & GME probe and spec Bloom bottle TA-GBB-2 sold in package of twelve bottles.|
|Fixtures used with fixture base table TA-BT-KIT|
|Compression Top Plate for applying uniform compression forces on samples up to 4x6 inches (10x15cm).||AACC spec probe for bread firmness and texture profile analysis.||Dough Stickiness Fixture is standard test for measuring dough stickiness which is an important parameter for processing raw dough.|
|Standard dough pot set for preparing dough samples and measuring dough firmness.||Dough Extensibility fixture for holding sheet of raw dough or flat bread. Biaxial test force is applied by spherical probe. Test measures force and distance as sample is stretched to breaking point.||Syringe Test Fixture for measuring the force required to push or pull syringe plunger. Important to pre-filled syringe market or manufacturers of custom syringe products.|
|Dual Extrusion Cell for either forward or back extrusion of fruit puree, pudding, yogurt or similar products.||Ottawa Cell for extruding assorted soft samples through one of two interchangeable bases. Good for cooked pasta or diced vegetables and fruit.||Kramer Shear Cell for combination cutting-shear and extrusion tests. Small fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, grapes, figs, corn and beans.|
|Confectionary Fixture for holding candies and the like for penetration testing. Prevents sample from lifting during probe retraction.||Pair of grips for tensile testing of thin films or integrity of seals for packaging.||Volodkevich Bite Jaws for testing bite force of meat products using cutting-shear test.|
|Shear Blade for products where a cutting-shear test is meaningful: meat, fish, sausage, etc.||Magness-Taylor Probes for testing hardness of fresh fruit and vegetables.||Small scale Multiple Probe Assembly consisting of nine 3mm probes and corresponding base plate specifically designed to hold nine small samples of irregular geometry such as peas, corn, nuts or dried fruit.|
|Wire Shear Plate allows cutting wire to pass completely through the sample. Good for products with significant stickiness which would cause cuttingshear blade to show significant drag. Good for cheese and butter.||Standard Probe Kit A variety of cylindrical (8), cone (3), ball (2), needle (1), knife-edge (1), and wire cutting (1) probes. Complies with BS and AACC standards.|
