CT3 Texture Analyzer (50 kg)


The CT3 can calculate, through compression and tensile data, a number of physical properties that have proven to be highly correlated to human sensory evaluation of food and other consumer products. With six built-in test modes and ten memory slots for operator-protected tests with administrator rights, a wide choice of accessories and an optional software package, the CT3 is perfect for most any physical testing requirements. The CT3 performs like a high end texture analyzer but at a fraction of the cost. Its uses can expand with your applications – or your testing imagination! The CT3’s easy-to-operate design will have your R&D and QC up and running in no time.
