New video of the TAR Friability Tester

The TAR series is a USP/EP/JP compliant ERWEKA unit for testing friability and/or abrasion of tablets.

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. Thanks to the extraordinary design, no removal or opening of the drums is necessary to fill and empty the friability drums, which makes handling the TAR series much easier.

For larger samples the complete unit can be set to the european pharmacopoeia required 10° position by a switching leg. The switching leg is equipped as standard to our TAR devices.

By weighing the samples before and after the test run, the abrasion can be precisely determined. A visual inspection of the sample provides information about the friability of the tablets.

The unit is available with 1 (TAR 120) or 2 (TAR 220) test drums - Friability and/or Abrasion drum
