Gamlen Tablet Tensile Analyzer
The Tablet Tensile Analyzer has been specially developed to simplify the evaluation of tablet samples made on the Gamlen D series. It is a modified tablet tensile tester combined with an electronic micrometer and optional 4-figure analytical balance.
Tablet fracture is performed at slow speed to generate true tensile fracture stress measurements.
The computer control system captures all data and presents it in a spreadsheet for automatic analysis.
The system produces plots of tablet solid fraction vs tensile fracture stress (compactibility). When used in conjunction with the Gamlen D series, plots of tabletability (compaction pressure vs tensile strength) and compressibility (compaction force vs solid fraction) are also automatically generated.
