In pharmaceutical, tapped density is a factor that may create big changes in production and is used as a prime scaling parameter for common drugs and pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. The performance of final products (tablet and capsule in solid dosage form) totally depends upon absolute and relative densities of raw materials; therefore, it becomes imperative to measure tapped or bulk density before taking them into process. In order to measure and monitor tapped or bulk density of powder samples and compacts, an instrument is employed, which is called Tapped Density Apparatus. The purpose of this instrument is to analyze, which powder sample does not meet the normal QC tapped density specification might disrupt the manufacturing process.
Bulk & Tapped Density Tester
Panomex brings to you dual platform tapped density tester, which has been carefully designed so that when you calculate tapped density of powders, granules and flaked materials, you have an errorless, fast, flexible and stable instrument. This density meter provides standardized method and unparalleled ease-of-use at an attractive price.
The model comes with standard sized graduated cylinder and provision for 80 columns dot matrix printer. In addition to standard USP I method (Tap height: 14mm ±2mm, Tapping rate: 300 taps/min approx.), ASTM configuration can be provided as an option. This instrument is suitable for pharmaceutical and industrial applications such as tablets, capsules, various types of chemicals and powdered metals.
