Tapped density JV | USP Compliant Tapped Density Testers - Burns Automation

Tapped density JV

The Tapped Density Testers Series JV have been designed to measure the tapped density (or tap density) of powders, granules and similar products in accordance with USP Chapter <616> Method 2 and Ph.Eur. Chapter 2.9.15. This technique is particularly useful in powder flowability studies and also in determining the amount of settlement during transit to optimise pack sizes e.g., washing powders. Tapped density is achieved by mechanically tapping a measuring cylinder (i.e. raising the cylinder and allowing it to drop a specified distance under its own weight) containing the sample under test.
