Help : Chlorine Tablet to Powder to Tab again ! Possible ?


Hello,

I am wondering if its possible to turn a 167mg effervescent Cl Tablet comprise of various compounds, crush it into powder and re-press it (using a manual pill crusher) into a 5 x 33mg size tablet without loosing effectiveness ? and have 5 evenly distributed 33mg tablets. Or is the fact of crushing the tablet diffuses all the compounds randomly with one of the 33mg tab having a certain % of the compounds and another 33mg tab having other % making the process uneven, unreliable and useless.

Sorry for the use of the non technical terms, I am obviously a neophyte.

Thank you much for shedding some light

Joe

A typical Cl tablet is a homogeneous blend of sodium dichloroisocyanurate (NaDCC) with effervescent components. Crushing it to powder should not affect components distribution. Just take care to make new pills right away after crushing initial pill.
