As a production press runs, the temperature of the press increases through friction.
Merlin has a temperature controlled die that can simulate the higher operating temperatures which occur on a real full scale production press (-10°C up to 70°C) to assess the impact of temperature on the behaviour of the formulation during compaction and ejection.
The effect of scale up temperatures can be predicted using small scale tests on a few grams of material. Knowing what to expect on scale up will avoid any nasty surprises.
