Improved Handling of Foaming Media with PT-DDS4

PT-DDS4 inlet for foaming media

To improve the handling of foaming media, like SLS with the Pharma Test PT-DDS4 media preparation system, a new alternative inlet is available now. Now, a bent inlet tube can be used as an alternative to the standard diffuser inlet. The bent inlet tube directs the medium against the barrel wall, where it can gently flow down the tank, thus preventing an excessive foam build up.The inlet tubes can be changed freely by the user. The inlets are secured by a knurled head screw. An upgrade kit for existing PT-DDS4 instruments is available as well. The PT-DDS4 inlet for foaming media is available now. For more details on the PT-DDS4 media preparation system see product website and download the PDF brochure there.

PTB 111EP Tablet Hardness Testing Instrument with Integrated Protocol Printer Available Now

PTB 111EPThe new digital tablet hardness testing instrument PTB 111EP includes an integrated protocol printer. It is a dual force mode hardness test apparatus as it can be used for either linear force or linear speed increase while tablet hardness is tested. It offers a multiple point validation procedure for the built-in digital load cell. The flexibility and the reproducibility of the results have made this and other models, like the PTB 311E series become one of the most sold tablet hardness testing instruments worldwide. By using an integrated report printer, the bench space requirements to of this instrument are even lower than other instruments from the PTB series, since no additional external printer is required. Furthermore, the report printer requires less paper than a standard A4 printer and by this helps to preserve our precious natural resources. The PTB 111EP is available now. For more details see the PTB 111EP website and download the PDF brochure there.
