Would you like to request a copy of our guide "Tips and Tricks for Successful Fracturability Testing"? Fracturability is the tendency of a material to fracture, crumble, crack, shatter or fail upon the application of a relatively small amount of force or impact. The term encompasses crumbliness, crispiness, crunchiness and brittleness, and is usually displayed by a product of high degree of hardness and low degree of cohesiveness and is commonly the textural property possessed by baked goods, snacks and generally 'dry' products. Stable Micro Systems enables a wide range of tests in this field, using fixtures such as the Three Point Bend Rig which are adaptable to many types of sample, and also specialists attachments like the Crisp Fracture Support Rig or the Spaghetti Flexure Rig. Basic cylinder probes may also be used, for example, for assessing tablet fracturability in a Diametral Crushing Test. We have compiled a feature showing many of these applications and it is now available free of charge as a PDF. Visit our special Resource Request page: http://bit.ly/1edx4iO
