Now available, our New CTX Texture Analyzer is an advanced model for compression and tension testing of materials.  It allows quick, efficient testing for busy labs that need to improve productivity while maintaining quality.

The CTX usability features allow for easy set up to get you up and running quickly. Whether you are testing the consistency of pills and tablets, the peel ability of a yogurt lid, or the tensile strength of lipstick, our new CTX will meet your ever-growing testing needs.

The addition of TexturePro Software makes the CTX ideal for R&D labs performing material evaluation/character­ization tests. It also is great in QC applications where data can be sent or saved in multiple formats.  

What's new?

  • Flexibility - Interchangeavle load cells for optimal flexibility (eight choices ranging from 100g to 100kg)
  • Functionality - extended boom travel up to 280mm for longer reach testing
  • Speed - Faster travel means faster testing
  • Precision - 500 Hz data output rate captures the precise moment there is a change to your sample

The Brookfield CT3 Texture Analyzer is a powerful universal testing machine that offers both compression and tensile testing at a much lower price than other testers in its class.

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.

  • Conforms fully with GME and GMIA monograms for gelatin Bloom assessment; includes built-in Bloom Test function
  • Gelatin Bath System available for sample conditioning
  • Easiest-to-use Texture Analyzer in its class
  • Supplied with Texture Loader software to allow creation of up to 10 customized tests
  • Can be used with optional software, TexturePro CT, to easily create custom reports and graphs

How to Change the CTX Load Cell

TexturePro CT Software (Optional)

While the CT3 can perform many tests in stand alone mode, use of TexturePro CT Software permits creation of multiple tests and automatic execution without operator involvement.

Easily create custom reports and graphs right from the menu screen.

  • Sample identification set-up screen helps new operators quickly get started; test fields outline a variety of parameters
  • Intuitive set up for test methods and database file structures in a single window
  • Data is captured as a graph and stored in tabular database format
  • Advanced data analysis with built-in parameter calculations such as springiness, chewiness, hardness and much more!
  • Cosmetics & Personal Care
  • Food & Beverage
