Tablet Hardness Tester‚ including Thickness and Diameter.

The Logan HDT-400L Tablet Hardness Tester tests tablets‚ sweets or capsuleshaped samples. The Hardness Tester microprocessor controlledmeasurement system provides accuracy and versatility. All the Hardnesstester test results are shown on the digital LCD display and can beprinted out for a permanent record of the test results.

The hardness tester can test within a 5-200N range. Diameter andthickness can be tested with in a 2.0-35.0 mm range. The hardnesstester measurement can be calculated in N‚ Kp or Sc. The diameter andthickness measurement can be calculated in mm"s or inches.

With its advanced features the HDT-400L Hardness tester is 4 timesfaster then the previous model and easy to operate. The user lifts thetop cover and loads the sample onto the sample carrier. The test maythen proceed in automatic (for up to 99 samples) or manual mode. Aremovable waste tray under the measurement compartment and a small handheld brush is provided to neatly retrieve sample fragments. Theinstrument calibration is simple to perform on any flat surface withstandard tools.

The operation and design of the Hardness Tester are infull compliance to the monograph for the USP and EP‚ CP and JP. Theload cell provides results that are 10 times more accurate thenrequired. The instrument is made from high quality metal‚ which fullymeets all GLP requirements.

  • New Model is 4 times faster then previous model
  • Thickness‚ Hardness and Diameter measurements from one test
  • Printout of calibration data via external printer
  • Manual or Automatic testing modes
