Flowability & Bulk density tester
The harmonized chapters in the Pharmacopeia (USP, Chapter <1174> / EP, Chapter 2.9.36) on powder flow lists well-defined methods for powder testing aimed at trying to bring about some degree of standardization within the test methodology. Additionally, bulk density measuring is described in USP <616> Method 2 in order to calculate compressibility and Hausner Ratio.
BEP 2 - Flowability Tester
Easy-to-use, small footprint flowability tester with interchangeable cylinder, funnel, angle-of-repose and shear cell attachments.
Scott Volumeter - Bulk Density Tester
Apparatus according to USP <616> to measure the bulk density of fine powders and similar products.
Test flowability of powders applying different methods:
- Flow through an orifice
- Angle of repose
- Shear cell
Calculate Compressibilty Index and Hausner Ratio once bulk density and tapped density have been determined.
