Electrolab Friability Testers

The Electrolab Tablet Friability Tester EF-1W has been designed to meet the increasing demand of the documentation, speed of through- put and ease of operation. The EF-1W complies with the specifications laid down in current USP and other pharmacopeias.

The design allows the front loading of the drum and the automatic discharging of the samples into the tray located below the drum, without opening or removing the drum from the drive shaft.

The design allows the front loading of the drum and the automatic discharging of the samples into the tray located below the drum, without opening or removing the drum from the drive shaft.

The unit supports Electrolab AD DrumTM as well as "Abrasion" drum with lamellas. The drum is designed to positively engage with the drive, to prevent any slip- page. The drum is held in position by a Snap-Click knob.

The 10° tilt facility of the drum with the bench top is provided as per USP to avoid the irregular tumbling caused by the shape or the size of the tablets.

The test can be performed in two different modes Time or Revolution Count mode. The Time and Revolution Count are programmable. The values once programmed are retained in its memory.

For ease of operation, the operator is guided through the complete test procedure by a series of prompts on the LCD display.

Different test parameters like Mode, Speed, Type of the drum, Selection of the weighing scale, print option, etc. can be set.

When a weighing scale is connected to EF-1W the weight of the sample before and after the test can be recorded through the RS-232 interface. The weight should be manually fed in when the weighing scale is not connected.

During the test, the actual RPM and the elapsed time or revolution count are displayed on the LCD display.

On completion of the friability test, the drum reverses automatically and discharges all its contents into the tray. The friability is then calculated and displayed as percentage weight loss.

A test report can be printed at the end of the test which includes the friability in terms of percentage weight loss, the test parameters, information about speed and accuracy during the test run and actual time and date on which the test was performed. It also includes entry fields for user name and product details.

The unit has got a unique power failure detection facility. If the power fails during the test run, the remaining test can be completed when the power supply is resumed.
