Tablet Hardness Tester TH3

Press release date: August 13, 2014

The TH3 is a portable semi-automatic electronic hardness tester with LCD display designed to accept tablets up to 30 mm in diameter - ideal for the tablet production area as a quick check as to compression force settings. The testing of a tablet’s hardness (or breaking force) plays a vital role in both product development and subsequent quality control.

Testing Procedure:

The tablet is placed on the test platform between the test jaw and the load cell plunger. A multi-turn low-friction hand-wheel similar to the type used on machine tools is used to apply load to the tablet until it fractures. The resulting breaking force is displayed on the LCD display in either newtons, grams, pounds or ounces.
