The new Sotax TD 1 comes with new housing in contemporary silver design. It measures the tapped density and tapped volumes of powders, granules, pellets, flakes and other bulk substances according to EP, ASTM and USP regulations. This technique is useful in powder compression and flowability studies as well as to determine the amount of settlement during transit and packaging.
TD 1 is calculated by mechanically tapping an initial volume of powder within a volumetric cylinder for a predefined time (raising and rotating the cylinder and allowing it to drop a specified distance under its own weight) until no further volume change is observed. Other proven functions and options such as the fast and efficient SingleButton™ operation allow navigating quickly through the user menu, or printing via Ethernet LAN.
