Brookfield Engineering Laboratories is now offering the TA-DGA Dual Grip Accessory for use with their CT3 Texture Analyzer to test the tensile breaking strength of packaging materials and package seals. The lower and upper grip assemblies are included with this accessory and are used to secure a test strip of the material being evaluated.
The Brookfield CT3 Tester 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. Texture Pro Software, which offers a range of test modes, enables the technician to generate analytical data comparable to other more costly systems.
