Original Press Release:
Get a Hold of Your Fruit!
Brookfield Engineering Laboratories offers the TA-CSF Circular Support Fixture for their CT3 Texture Analyzer. The Circular Support Fixture is designed to support irregular items like fresh fruit while texture tests are performed. In this example an apple is seated in the TA-CSF while a TA-MTP Magness-Taylor probe is used to measure firmness. Brookfield works with customers to develop consistent testing methodologies, even for irregular shaped items.
The Brookfield CT3 Tester is the best value in a stand-alone instrument for physical testing. It combines simplicity of operation with expanded test method capability and operates in both compression and tension modes.
A wide variety of standard probes, (cones, cylinders, blades, balls, punches) and fixtures (extrusion cell, shear cell, grips, etc.) are available for a multitude of applications. TexturePro CT software enables the operator to automate their test procedures and generate valuable analytical data.
