The determination of the relationship between powder bulk density and applied pressure provides relevant information for the optimization of tableted materials like carbons, ceramics and catalysts.
DENSIPRESS is an appliance to measure the bulk density of a powder as function of the applied pressure.
DENSIPRESS/R also measures the electrical resistance.
Both instruments are equipped with a cylindrical sample container (diameter 20 mm, length 250 mm), where the powder is loaded. Copper cylinders with different lengths allow to change the sample volume.
The sample container, Teflon-lined in DENSIPRESS/R, can be detached from the basement for easier removal of the powder.
In DENSIPRESS/R two wired copper disks placed at the bottom of the piston and of the sample container allow to measure the electrical resistance of the powder through an ohmmeter.
DENSIPRESS and DENSIPRESS/R are compliant with CE specifications
