If an aluminum casting application required a reduction in friability and brittleness, then the answer would be to add a cereal or starch.
Mucosal healing was defined as endoscopy score of 0 (intact vascular pattern, no friability or granularity) or 1 (erythema; diminished or absent vascular markings; mild granularity; friability).
Sand brittleness, as measured by the friability and cone jolt toughness tests, is reduced, because, as a result of high core sand dilution, sand brittleness is one of the most common problems in U.
Tests such as sieve analysis, apparent density, friability, were performed as previously reported(2).
Friability, erosion and sand inclusions all are symptoms of excessively high clay/water ratios.
Brochure features a complete line of tablet testing equipment; included are dissolution testing, automation, and testing machines; automated disintegration machines, tablet hardness testing equipment, friability testing equipment, suppository testing machines, pulver and drop testing equipment and dissolution accessories.
Overall, the mixer/cooler improves sand quality and provides increased shear strength, wet tensile strength and flowability, better gas permeability, lower water content at the same compactibility, and reduced friability of molding sand.
Initially, when the molding sand was first tested for these properties, friability was 18% and cone jolt toughness was 25 jolts at a methylene blue clay level of 6%.
