Tablet Hardness Tester

Share This On:

CategoryDescription
Principle of OperationOperates by applying a controlled force to the tablet until it fractures, providing a quantitative measure of its hardness.
Components
  • Load Cell or Force Sensor: Measures the force applied to the tablet.
  • Tablet Holder: Securely holds the tablet during testing.
  • Actuator: Applies force to the tablet, driven manually or through automation.
  • Control System: Sets testing parameters such as force range and speed.
  • Display Unit: Shows measured hardness values and relevant information.
  • Software Interface: Advanced models may include software for data management and analysis.
Operation
  1. Tablet is securely placed in the holder.
  2. Testing parameters are set on the control system.
  3. Actuator applies force until tablet fractures, measured by the load cell.
  4. Hardness value is displayed or recorded.
Types
  • Manual Hardness Testers: Requires manual operation by an operator.
  • Semi-Automated Hardness Testers: Combines manual loading with automated force application.
  • Fully-Automated Hardness Testers: Automates the entire testing process.
Applications
  • Quality Control: Ensures consistency and integrity of tablet formulations.
  • Research and Development: Optimizes formulations by assessing the impact of different parameters.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Meets pharmacopeial standards for tablet hardness limits.
