Tablet Analysis Equipment
The extensive range of tablet analysis equipment available from Natoli includes dissolution, tablet hardness, tap density, powder flow and friability testers for monitoring and quality control. Recent additions to the catalogue include a granule friability tester and a sieve shaker. The company also supply precision balances, moisture analysers and many other laboratory systems.
Among Natoli's most distinctive instruments is their portable handheld tablet hardness tester. The compact device is only ten inches in length and three inches in width. It provides an effective solution for both laboratory analysis and industrial manufacturing. The hardness detector is battery powered for added ease of transport, but can also be connected to a printer for validation purposes. Natoli Engineering's marketing co-ordinator, Rachel Krafft, observed: "Capable of measuring 2mm to 28mm tablets, with a hardness range up to 500 Newtons, this small device is powerful."
Tablets are placed between a pair of platen jaws. Pressure is applied, and increased at a steady rate until fracturing begins and the device registers a breaking point. The hardness tester includes a sliding guard and collection tray for safe, self-contained operation.
The extended portfolio of tablet analysis equipment in their Tablet Compression Accessories Catalog is one of many reasons why Natoli remains a leading supplier of compression accessories. The company also supply a complete range of tablet presses together with parts, tooling, accessories and services for applications in the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, industrial, veterinary, chemical and confectionary sectors.
