Fully USP <1174>, EP <2.9.36> and ISO 4324 (12/83) compliant
Measure flow-time, cone angle and flowability
Identify incoming raw materials according to EP <2.2.40>
PTG-S4, Powder Characterisation Instrument
The automated PTG-S4 powder testing system is used to measure the flow behaviour of granules and powders.
The PTG-S4 Powder Testing System is used to measure the flow behaviour of Granules and Powders in compliance with the EP <2.9.17/36> and USP <1174> pharmacopoeia and the international ISO 4324 standard. This instrument is suitable for testing powder Flow Time, the measurement of the Cone Angle (angle of repose) of the collected powder mound, measuring the Weight, calculating the Density and the Volume of the powder cone as well as the EP/USP „Flowability“ results which is to measure the flow time of 100 g of sample through a specified pouring nozzle.
The PT-IM100 represents an innovative, reliable and flexible analyzer for the identification of incoming raw materials according to EP.
As the method uses a simple Photometric procedure, this results in low cost per analysis methodology for product identification and fingerprinting. There is added security in the fact that identified materials can be authenticated against a reference material list as well as a known reference sample.
