The TH3 is a portable semi-automatic electronic tablet 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 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 (N), grams (g), pounds (lbs) or ounces (oz).
To test another tablet, simply press to zero the loads cell and proceed as above.
Two models are available, the TH3/200 having a range of 200 Newtons +/- 0.04N or the TH3/500 having a range of 500 Newtons +/- 0.1N respectively.
