About Our Compaction Simulators
A hydraulic simulator is the most versatile means to simulate a wide variety of production tablet presses, as well as enabling alternative profiles for material characterisation testing (V-shaped profiles). This incredibly accurate data enables huge savings in both time and money during the scale-up and production processes.
The Phoenix Compaction Simulator is entirely designed and built in-house, including the electronics, software and mechanical system, giving the ability to evolve and develop any aspect of the system as user needs change over time. The machine frame is purpose-built, compact and lightweight in design to suit the modern facility requirements.
The Phoenix Compaction Simulator is the result of development and collaboration with compaction simulator users over the past 30 years, from the very first ESH Testing Simulator built in 1982, incorporating features to suit a wide range of user needs from early-stage material characterisation to troubleshooting production problems.
For customers who have a need for this type of testing, but do not have a full-time requirement, our sister company Merlin Powder Characterisation is equipped with a Phoenix Compaction Simulator and a full range of accessories, offering subcontract powder characterisation services.
