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 E and PTF ER, single or double drum tablet friability test instruments. Both are available as fixed or variable speed instruments and are manufactured in compliance to the monographs of the USP <1216>, European EP <2.9.7> and other Pharmacopoeias. The PTF E instruments are manufactured with either one or two drums, both friability („Roche“) and (optionally) abrasion drums are available. Since a friabilty testing instrument is often used in production, its stainless steel housing fits ideally.
