Friability testing is used to test the durability of tablets during transit. This involves repeatedly dropping a sample of tablets over a fixed time, using a rotating drum with a baffle. The result is inspected for broken tablets, and the percentage of tablet mass lost through chipping.
PTF ERA and PTF DR are automated friability testing instruments, available as single or multiple drum apparatus. They are manufactured in compliance to the monographs of the USP <1216>, european EP <2.9.7> and other Pharmacopoeias. The tested samples are automatically discharged into individual stainless steel collectors without having to remove the drums from their axis. Using the PTF DR instruments an analytical balance can be connected to the COM port of the PTF DR to perform the weight test prior and after friability testing. A report is printed if a suitable PCL or DOT-matrix printer is connected to the printer port.
