PT-TD200 Tapping Density and Apparent Volume Testing Instrument

The PT-TD200 is a single station tapping density testing instrument. It allows to test in compliance with the monographs of the USP <616, Method 1-2> and the EP <2.9.34-3, Method 1-2> and DIN 53194.  The instrument is used to determine additional physical product characteristics with others like particle size, size distribution, cone angle, flowability, shape etc. Together with information describing the behavioural characteristics such as flow properties, density etc. the results are used to improve the design quality during development as well as the conformity of product in quality assurance and in-process control.
