Often associated to length and diameter measurements, hardness test consists in applying pressure on the tablet until its breaking point.There are two methods: at constant speed or at constant force; but even if these two methods are described in materia medica, their results are different and not related !That’s why we offer you a range of instrument adapted to work with both constant force and constant speed.One of the main difficulties of this test concerns the tablet shape : an oblong (oval) tablet is often hard to maintain lengthwise when a pressure is exerted. The oblong shape makes it slide. For this reason one may have to proceed several times before succeeding… On all of the devices we propose, the self-positioning will enable you to realize measurements without problem, whatever your tablet shapes.According to your speeds, we propose semi-automatic or fully automatic manual versions with weight-in included.
Any advice ? any question ?
