Atlas AF1000 Friabilator

Atlas AF1000 Friabilator

The Atlas AF1000 Friabilator is designed to meet the specifications in the USP/EP and other pharmacopoeias.The unit is supplied with two drums as standard – these can be mounted

individually or together on to the front of the unit. This gives better visibility than side mounted drums.
The unit is easy to program using the alphanumeric key pad. The test may be
set to a specified number of rotations or a fixed time. The speed at which
the drum rotates is fixed at 25rpm.

When the test begins the drum automatically moves into the load position and the weight of the tablets is entered.
At the end of the test, the unit will automatically tip the tablets into the receiving tray. The tablets should then be carefully brushed to remove any powder then reweighed. This value is entered and the the percentage weight loss calculated. This value along with the other test parameters may be printed on a suitable printer.
The unit is supplied with a foldable leg that enables a test to be run at 10° as per the USP if required.
Full IQ/OQ documentation is available.

About Atlas Friabilator

The Labhut AF1000 Friabilator is designed to meet the specifications in the USP/EP and other pharmacopoeias.

The unit is supplied with one or two drums as standard – these can be mounted individually or together on to the front of the unit. This can give better visibility than side mounted drums.

The unit is easy to program using the alphanumeric key pad. The test can either be set to a specified number of rotations or a fixed time. The speed at which the drum rotates is fixed at 25rpm

When the test begins the drum automatically moves into the load position and asks for the weight of the tablets. At the end of the test, the unit will automatically tip the tablets into the receiving tray. The tablets should then be carefully brushed to remove any powder then reweighed. Enter this value and the unit will then calculate the percentage weight loss. This value along with the other test parameters can be printed on a suitable printer.

The unit is supplied with a foldable leg that enables a test to be run at 10o if required.

The AF1000 is supported by full IQ/OQ documentation

 

About Tablet Friability Testing

A tablet's friability is the amount that it will crumble under pressure. The aim of the test is to ensure that tablets will stay intact during transportation and that they will not fracture or lose significant weight to dusting.

As with the other tablet tests the method of testing is defined by the USP//JP (this has been harmonised for this process).

The tablets are dusted, weighed, and placed into a rotating drum of fixed dimension (ID between 283 and 291mm). 

The drum has a curved projection inside to lift the tablets and drop them once per rotation. Typically the drum is rotated 100 times at a fixed speed of 25 RPM.

At the end of the test the tabletsare dusted again and reweighed. Any mass loss of less than 1% is considered acceptable but if any of the tablets are cracked or broken then the test is failed.

Occasionally some tablets will bind together which can prevent them from falling freely. In this situation the drum base is tilted 10o to prevent them lying together.

Other options include special abrasive drums and dual drums for running two sets of tablets together.
