Friability Testers (Uncoated Tablets)
Made in Britain
The sample (normally 10 tablets) to be tested is first weighed and then placed into the drum. The drum is then rotated 100 times, any loose dust from the sample removed and the sample re-weighed.
The Friability of the sample is given in terms of % weight loss (loss in weight expressed as a percentage of the original sample weight). A maximum weight loss of not more than 1% is considered acceptable for most tablets.
Abrasion drums for carrying out tests into the attrition of tablets caused by the product rubbing together during transit are also available on request.
