The CT3 is a low cost, but powerful, universal testing machine that offers both compression and tensile testing. It 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 CT-3 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.
