The TA-NTF noodle tensile fixture for the CT3 texture analyzer is designed to test the extensibility and tensile breaking strength of noodles, pasta, and other similar food items. Brookfield will work with the customer to develop the testing methodology required to provide consistent test results. The lower and upper grip assemblies are included and no base table is required. The 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, cylinder, 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.
