Sotax MT50 Manual Tablet Hardness Tester

  • Configurable test reports
  • Measures 5 parameters
  • Optimized jaw movements
  • 90-day warranty 

Proven to be the most advanced, precise, and user-friendly manual tablet hardness tester, the MT50 with high-precision Dr. Schleuniger technology is an all-time favorite in both laboratories and compression rooms. Robust and very easy to use, the manual tester sets new standards in fast and precise manual operation – from multi-parameter runs to simple hardness tests of all types of samples, shapes, and materials.

The open and accessible test area allows for simple tablet handling by the operator – and doesn’t limit the flexibility of the MT50 to measure virtually all types of tablet shapes, sizes, and materials. 

Three different test modes allow using the MT50 according to individual requirements – from automatic evaluation of results with programmed product specifications (T1 / T2 / PL) to simple test runs. Different user access levels ensure that settings or product specifications can only be modified by authorized personnel. 

The MT50 excels with standard-setting accuracy and repeatability. Powerful state-of-the-art electronics, a precision S-beam load cell, and robust mechanical components provide for extremely accurate hardness results. Low breaking forces associated with very small and brittle samples such as mini-tabs are reliably determined. Additionally, the MT50 incorporates innovative linear measuring technology for exceptionally precise dimensional measurements (e.g. tablet diameter / length / width / thickness).

Simply the fastest way to perform tests. Equipped with an integrated FastTest thickness gauge, the MT50 becomes a true multi-purpose instrument that accumulates different measurements in a single test protocol. With little practice, operators are able to perform test runs for 5 parameters as quickly as most automated systems on the market. When connecting an external analytical balance, weight measurements are automatically protocolled in the same test report.

All of the equipment we sell is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.

The photos above are representative. Please bear in mind that the equipment shown is currently in storage in our warehouse and that in addition to testing each machine we will clean all the equipment thoroughly prior to shipment. We often have multiple units of each model in stock and sometimes we're unable to feature photos of every single unit. At your request, we can provide photos of the equipment in your order after it has been tested and cleaned.
