Brookfield Engineering Laboratories has announced the promotion of Chris Freeman to the position of senior product manager - CT3 texture analyzers. The CT3 is a general purpose instrument used in compression and tension testing of solid and soft-solid substances. It is ideal for a wide variety of applications including foods, dairy and bakery products, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and many more.
Freeman already provides CT3 sales and support coverage to customers throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Australia. He will continue to orchestrate the Brookfield dealer network in these countries.
The CT3 texture analyzer has experienced rapid growth in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and industrial markets. This growth is attributable to Freeman’s initiative, creating new test fixtures for these specific industries. He has developed a kit for testing tablets, capsules, lipsticks, lotions, and many other items typically manufactured by these industries.
The CT3 simulates test conditions that mimic how the customers use products. Texture testing with the CT3 saves manufacturers money by automating pass/fail test methods as compared with more expensive human sensory test panels.
Freeman is based at Brookfield’s European headquarters located in Harlow, Essex, UK.
