UFT Series Tablet Friability Tester series are the requisite instrument in detecting dissolution of tablets, capsule etc. All of our lab instruments are designed and manufactured in according to USP Specifications. UFT-2 Friability Tester comprise of dual drums rotated at a fixed speed of 25 rpm while UFT-1 has variable speed from 20 ~ 90 RPM. The standard friability drum has an inside diameter of 286 mm and a depth of 39 mm and is fitted with a curved baffle which subjects the tablets to be tested to a drop of 156 mm.
Friability Testing measures the potential percent weight loss of compressed tablets by replicating the rigorous environmental conditions that tablets are subjected to during the manufacturing, packaging, and distribution processes. Tablets need to be hard enough to which they do not break up in the bottle but friable enough that they disintegrate in the gastrointestinal tract.
In a friability test, samples are counted and weighed, then tumbled in the rotating drums with baffles, when the process is stopped; tablet samples are weighed again and the difference between the weight before and after the process is determined as Friability and should not exceed 1%, which is considered an ideal percentage.
