Labindia has designed Tap Density Tester, to measure the tapped density of powders, granules and similar products. The tester offers a

standardized and repeatable method of measuring tapped volumes of powders. The unit provides users friendly operation.

Salient Features

  • Designed to meet current USP and ASTM specifications for tap density testing
  • Two Tapping Positions for 14mm and 3mm respectively with cylinder holders to hold 100 ml and 250 ml cylinders.
  • The unique simultaneous tapping and rotating motion assures that the material is evenly packed
  • Calculates results - Tapped Density, Compressibility Index, Hausner Ratio and Bulk Density.
  • Balance Interface for sample weight transfer
