The TA-DGA dual grip accessory is used with the 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 tester combines simplicity of operation with expanded test method capability and operates in both compression and tension modes. A 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.
