TAR Friability Testers – Overview

TAR friability testers are USP/ Pharm.Eur./ JP compliant ERWEKA units for testing friability and/or abrasion. Programming is easily performed by the symbol style keypad. The friability tester rotation speed can be programmed between 20 and 100 rpm and test run duration can be set in either time or total number of revolutions. During the test run the actual rotation speed and the test run duration is shown on bright LED displays. For larger samples the friability tester can be set to the USP / Pharm.Eur. required 10° position by a standard switching leg. To increase the ease of handling on the friability tester, the friability drums don’t have to be removed and opened for loading and emptying. Instead the friability drums are loaded through an opening. On completion of the test run, the samples are automatically removed into a container located under the drum. The USB interface allows you either to download the test parameters (time, actual/ nominal speed) to a PC or receive a hard-copy printout when an optional printer is connected.
