The FAB-2SP Friability Tester is the latest device to test the mechanical strength of tablets, meeting all current USP and BP requirements. The FAB-2SP is designed for use with both friability and abrasion drums, and either one or two drums can be used at a time. The speed of the rotation is variable for 20-70 RPM as per user selection.
In use, the operator loads the weighted tablets into the drum, and then places it on the drive shaft. The test time or number of rotations can be selected and easily entered via the keypad, the inputted data and rotation or time countdown are clearly indicated on the LED display. After a test, just empty the tablets from the drum window to a 10 mesh sieve and weight the tablets. Input the weight before the test and after the test to the FAB-2SP, the printer delivers all the test data and calculations at the end of test.
The drums are constructed from Plexiglas and separated into two parts, the drum body and drum cover. The cover is easily removed to facilitate filling or discharging of the samples and cleaning the inside of the drum. The FAB-2S is made of high quality metal with an acid resistant finish and meets all GLP requirements.
