The universal 3-point flexure test kit allows break points and break forces on ampoules of various sizes to be tested. The kit can be adjusted to accommodate the ampoule geometry via shims and a movable anvil. The kit is designed for a nominal force of 500 N. A protective pane is recommended for this test, since glass breakage may occur.
The kit is used to determine the break forces on 1-2 ml, 3 ml, 5 ml, 10 ml, and 20-30 ml ampoules. It consists of a flexure table and two adjustable, prism-shaped anvils and a die. The kit can be adjusted to accommodate the various ampoule geometries via shims and a movable anvil.
