Cracks Under Control ? New Powder Compaction Rigs from Stable Micro Systems

Oct 30 2007

Stable Micro Systems has launched a new Powder Compaction Rig. Available in high or low tolerance variants, this Community Registered Design accurately measures the force and/or punch displacement required to compress powders into tablets. Using Stable Micro Systems' Exponent software, the Powder Compaction Rig guarantees precise measurements that enable pharmaceutical product manufacturers to produce powder compacts with consistent porosity.

The Powder Compaction Rig enables manufactures to solve such problems. It accurately assesses the force needed for the punch to travel a specified distance, or can be used in target force mode to assess the effect of fill level on tablet thickness.

The Powder Compaction Rig is available in two variants. The High Tolerance version is suited to high force applications where the punch/die clearance is critical. This fixture is auto-aligned using a universal adapter, which saves time and avoids human error. The Low Tolerance Powder Compaction Rig is suited to other powder compaction applications, such as assessing granule friability, where punch/die clearance is less important.
