CT3 Texture Analyzer

The CT3 is a low cost, but powerful, texture analyzer that offers both compression and tension. Note: CT3 replaced the popular LFRA.

With six test modes, a wide choice of accessories and an optional software package, the CT3 performs like a high end texture analyzer but at a fraction of the cost. And because the CT3 is a “custom build” item, 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.
