Bulk Density Apparatus

It is testing equipment at Kumar Instruments that have been utilized to calculate the bulk density property of divided solids, powder, and granules, especially apply in reference to mineral components (sand, gravel, soil), pharmaceutical, chemical substances, plastics like polystyrene, polyethylene (MDPE or HDPE) PVC, etc.

Apparatus – 951 is uniquely designed to study the packing down of powder beds of various chemical powders and pharmaceuticals, granules, pellets, flakes, and other bulk substances. Bulk Density is a significant test necessary in the procedure of cosmetic, tablet, and capsule filling manufacturing.

What instrument measures bulk density?

As per Laboratory Instruments, The BeDensi B1 bulk density meter (which adopts the natural deposition process) is mainly utilized for the analysis of bulk density for various powders (except for metal powder).  

What is the bulk density method?

This method of a powder is regulated by calculating the capacity of a familiar mass of powder sample, that probably has been passing through a sieve into a progressed cylinder (Method 1), or by calculating the mass of a familiar volume of powder that has been passing through an instrument for measuring volumes into a cup (Method 2) or a measuring vessel.


•            Pretty useful for Pharmaceutical Lab

•            Easy to Operate and Highly Accurate

•            Microcontroller Based Digital Display

•            Soft Touch Membrane Keys

•            3 LED’s for status Indication

•            Audible Alarm Sound

•            Last Count Retention on Power Failure

The system is equipped with exact stroke count and soft touch membrane type keys for ease of operation and a microcontroller-based digital display for displaying accurately.

In case of power failure, the last counts are maintained and from the point of power failure, the instrument initiates counting automatically. The instrument utilized advanced engineering procedures and the most recent microprocessor automation so as to offer enhanced reproducibility and accuracy.

What is the purpose of bulk density?

It reflects the powder potential to function for systematic support, soil aeration, and solute and water movement. Bulk densities above starting point mentioned impaired function. Bulk density is also utilized to convert between the volume of soil and weight.

Bulk density is explained as the mass of numerous particles of the substance divided by the total volume they absorb. The total volume involves internal pore volume, particle volume, and inter-particle void volume.

How does bulk density work?

Bulk density is the weight of powder in a given volume. Tend to block root growth if powder with a bulk density higher than 1.6 g/cm3. It increases with compression and tends to grow with depth… Bulk density can be utilized to measure powder properties per unit area (e.g. kg/ha).

A bulk density tester does not calculate a fundamental property of a substance; it can change depends on how the substance is handled. For example, a powder will have a specific bulk density as the ones that flow into a cylinder; if the cylinder is disrupted, the powder particles will motion and normally settle closer together, results in a high up bulk density. For this reason, the bulk density of powders is routinely shown up both as poured density  (or freely settled) and tapped density (the tapped one normally involves vibration of the container as denotes the bulk density of the powder after a specified compression method.)
