Burns Automation Friability Tester


Friability Tester

Tablet Friability Testers of the FT Series comply 100% with all USP/EP requirements. The drum is turned at 25 +/- 1 rpm.   
The CALEVA FT series come with a routine for emptying the drum automatically, without removing the drum from the unit.   
Programming is easily performed by the symbol style keypad. The 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 LE displays.   
For larger samples the complete unit can be set to the USP / Pharm.Eur. required 10° position by a standard switching leg.   
To increase the ease of handling on the FT series, 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.   
CALEVA Friability Testers are available for one (FT 15) or two (FT 25) drum/s.
