Fully Automated Tablet Disintegration Testing
configuration. The PTZ AUTO3 EZ Disintegration Test Instrument is equipped in full compliance with the USP and EP pharmacopoeia requirements and ready to operate 3 automated disintegration baskets independently. A large 320x240 Pixel LCD screen and an alpha-numerical keyboard is used to edit product and test information, such as the disintegration time for each station, bath and media temperature etc. A memory files up to 16 different testing methods.
The built-in heating system uses a silent circulation pump and a heater to pre-heat the outer water and keep the temperature within a tight tolerance; the actual bath temperature is always displayed and measured by an external movable temperature probe inside the water bath.
The overheating protection system includes a pressure gauge to monitor the pump flow, a
thermo switch and thermo fuse to cut the power supply in case of an electronical fault. This secures automatic shut down of the pump and heater in the event that no water flows detected or the electronical control system fails. A built-in digital safety sensor placed at the end of the heating coil shuts down the heating when temperature exceeds +60° C max. 95°C at the heater.
For easy cleaning and maintenance, the Plexiglas water bath can be easily removed using
the fast coupling system.
