The versatile catalyst crushing strength tester can be used as a single or bulk crushing strength tester. The unit consists of an automated press controlled by a force sensor.
ASTM D4179 & ASTM D6175 GCS-SINGLE-GRAIN CRUSHING STRENGTH
When used for single grain crushing strength tests, the device works with single pellets and/or with extrudates radial grains. The grain is placed on the anvil of a transducer and a mobile piston crushes the grain. An electronic device, connected to the computer, measures the peak value at which the grain breaks and displays it on the computer screen. The test results and calculations are produced as part of a comprehensive analytical report. The measuring device is provided with several sets of Hammer-Anvil and Hammer-Holding showing standardized dimensions and made of stainless steel. The tester complies with the ASTM D4179 and 6175 methods.
ASTM D7084-4 & SMS-1471 BCS-BULK CRUSHING STRENGTH
When used for bulk crushing strength tests, the device determines the resistance to crushing of a bed of grains whose maximum dimension is 6mm. The equipment complies with the ASTM D7084-18 and SMS-1471 methods.
The device complies with the following standards:
* ASTM D4179 : Single Catalyst Pellet Crushing Strength
* ASTM D6175 : Radial Crushing Strength of extrudates
* ASTM D7084 : Bulk Crushing Strength of catalysts
* SMS-1471: Alternative bulk Crushing Strength of catalysts
