Powder Testing Area
This is the area for Automated Powder Testing Products. Please read more next to the images for more information about performance, accessoires, calibration tools and consumables.
The PTGS3 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 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 PTG-NIR Powder Flow Analyser with NIR detection is used for the qualitative analysis of powders. This system is still under evaluation and not yet released for marketing. We still want to let you know of our on-going developments in the field of Powder Testing. Whenever we are sure that the technology is working reliable and the system can be offered with competitive pricing we will inform our customers
Powder Characterisation Instrument
The automated PTGS3 powder testing system is used to measure the flow behaviour of granules and powders in compliance with the current EP <2.9.36/17> and USP pharmacopoeia as well as with the international ISO 4324 standards. This instrument is suitable for testing powder Flow Time, the measurement of the Cone Angle (angle of repose) of the collected powder mound, printing a Powder Flow Chart, while measuring the weight it is calculating the powder Cone Density and the powder Cone Volume as well as the EP “Flowability” results which is measuring the flow time of 100 g of sample through a specified pouring nozzle. It is equipped with a built-in Mettler Balance Cell, range 1 – 350 mg, accuracy 1.0 mg, and a built-in printer.
The design is compliant to the current EP monograph <2.9.36/17>, USP and the ISO 4324 (12/83) standard. A conical stainless steel funnel which can be equipped with different pouring nozzles ranging from 4 – 25 mm takes the sample to be tested. The built-in analytical balance cell is placed inside the instrument housing and holds the product collecting dish. The PTGER electrical stirrer attached to the main instrument may be used for those powders which do not flow due to the high percentage of fine particles.
Now available: small POM product funnel and dish for just 10g of sample and a Plexiglas protection hood for the entire testing system.
NIR Accessory for Powder Characterisation Instrument PTGS3. The PTG-NIR Powder Flow Analyser with NIR detection is used for the qualitative analysis of powders.
Automated Powder Characterisation
The PTG-NIR automatic powder and granule inspection system with integrated NIR spectrometer shall be used to examine the Flow Characteristics of a powder or a granule.
At present the system is still under development and evaluation to proof the quality and reproducability of results.
The combination of a Powder Testing System with a NIR Diode Array spectrometer will be used for simultaneous detection of Chemical, Physical and Morphological information. This information is describing the flow behaviours of a powder or granule. Other forms of solids are possible to be tested too. All the parameters are shown as one result: The flow property.
