- Crusher Specs/Testing
A standard hydraulic jack will be used to crush pills. Simple attachments cab be machined which can allow people to raise and lower with ease.
Contains a lever action handle that is spring loaded. Once the handle is lowered to a certain point a spring system is compressed. The lever reaches another point to release spring which drives a hammer to the pills. This is done in a ratcheting motion.
This has been our most promising design yet. A powered hammer could be electric or pneumatic. Good impact force and rpm, but could be loud.
The concept of this design is to apply a force onto the pills which are placed on a protruded surface. After an initial force breaks the pill, a torque will be applied to grind the remaining particles into finer powder.
