Powder Testing


Determines the powder cone angle of the collected powder, powder flow time, density, weight and the volume

Pharma Test Powder Testing

PTG-S5 Automated Powder Flow Analyzer
The PTG-S5 automated powder flow analyzer is used to measure the flow behavior of granules and powders in compliance with the EP <2.9.36>, EP <2.9.16>, USP <1174> Pharmacopoeia and ISO 4324 standards. This instrument determines the powder flow time, the powder cone angle of the collected powder mound, the weight, the density and the volume of the powder cone. Furthermore, the EP “flowability” result is calculated by measuring the flow time of 100g of sample through a specified pouring nozzle.

PT-TD300 Tapped Density and Apparent Density Testing Instrument
The PT-TD300 is used to test the tapped (or “tamped”) density and apparent density of powders, granules, pigments and similar products in compliance with the current USP <616> methods 1 and methods 2 as well as with EP <2.9.34>, DIN EN ISO 787-11, ASTM B527  and ASTM D7481.18. The instrument automatically calculates the tapped density, Hausner flowability ratio and Carr compressibility index after each test and documents the results via the integrated protocol printer.

PTG-NIR Powder Analysis System

The PTG-NIR automatic powder and granule analysis system combines the Pharma Test PTG-S5 powder flow testing instrument with an integrated J&M TIDAS L NIR diode array spectrometer. The system is controlled by the powerful TIDASDAQ3 software including a customized script for the PTG-NIR. The system is ideal to examine the flow characteristics of a powder or granule. This combination is ideal for simultaneous detection of chemical, physical and morphological information. This information is describing the flow behaviors of a powder or granule. Other forms of solids are possible to be tested too. All the results are presented in a single report generated by the included TIDASDAQ3 software.

PT-SV100 Scott Volumeter

The PT-SV100 Scott Volumeter determines bulk density of powders according to the following standard Monographs: USP <616>, Method II bulk density and tapped density of powders, EP <>, DIN ISO 3923-2 (metallic powders): determination of apparent density and optional ASTM B329 standard test method for apparent density of metal powders and compounds.
