Tapped density JV

Tapped Denisty   The Tapped Density Testers Series JV have been designed to measure the tapped density (or tap density) of powders, granules and similar products in accordance with USP Chapter <616> Method 2 and Ph.Eur. Chapter...
Bulk Density

Bulk Density

The bulk density of powders can be extremely difficult to measure since the slightest disturbance may cause a change in the results. This is the consequence of the relationship between the particles that constitute the powder bulk. This...
Flow trough an Orifice

Flow trough an Orifice

Measuring the ability and the time taken for a powder to flow through an orifice of known size is a useful method of quantifying powder flow. The cylinder attachment comprises a stainless steel cylinder having a capacity of 200 mL and comes...
Angle of Repose

Angle of Repose

The angle of repose is the angle (relative to the horizontal base) of the conical pile produced when a granular material is poured on to a horizontal surface. It is related to the density, surface area and coefficient of friction of the material...
Shear Cell

Shear Cell

Shear cell methodology is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry to determine the flow properties of fine grained powders and bulk solids and how they will behave in bins, hoppers, feeders and other handling equipment. The test is based...
