DISSOLUTION RATE TEST EQUIPMENT
Tablets or capsules taken orally remain one of the most effective means of treatment available even today. Tablet Dissolution is a standardized method for measuring the rate of drug release from a dosage form.
Consists of A water bath with 500 W heater covered 1000 ml. glass vessel and a digital temperature controller. Variable speed motor, with 30 cm. long 6 mm. dia. Stainless steel shaft. A cylindrical stainless steel basket and a membrane fixing attachment, water bath of thick acrylic sheet with transparent cover at top. Temperature of the bath is maintained at 37°C with an accuracy of +/-_ 1°C. A cylindrical glass vessel of capacity 1000 ml. with slightly concave bottom has a flanged edge at the top to accept a fitted cover having four holes. One hole is in the center. The shaft of motor fitted on an upright and has an electronic speed regulating device that allows the speed to be varied from 25 to 250 R.P.M. The shaft, with basket fitted at the end rotates smoothly and without any perceptible wobble. Basket consist of two parts, one of which is to be attached to the shaft of solid metal except for 2 mm. vent and is fitted with three springs clips that allows removal of the lower part of the basket to admit the test samples, the detachable part of basket is of stainless steel mesh formed into cylindrical 3.6 x 2.5 cm dia. Works 220 volts 50 Hz A. C.
(b) same as above but analog type single stage.

FRIABILITY TEST APPARATUS SINGLE
Used to determine the durability and abrasiveness of tablets. A transparent perspex drum of perspex sheet 6.4 mm. thick, 300 mm. dia x 35 mm. deep and white cover disc and nut, also a shaped radial fixed blade which carries the tablets along with it up to the central height and lets them of while the drum is rotating. Thus the tablets rub against each other without any hard impact. the drum rotates at a fixed speed of 30 R. P. M. by a geared motor and the rotation period is controlled by a timer having duration of 1 to 15 minutes per determined end preset. The motor unit is housed in a shaped mild steel cabinet with shaft extended on one side upon which the drum rotates. Switches with neon indicators and time switch are fitted on a panel land provided, work on 220 volts 50 Hz A.C.

Instrument used for measuring obression strength of tablets. The unit is equipped with two transparent acrylic drums which rotate at a speed of 25 ± 1 rpm. Each of the two acrylic drums are provided with an arm which carries the tablets along with it up to a predetermined height and allows them to fall from that specified height, while the drums are rotating, It is fitted with a digital revolution counter showing the current number of revolutions for the test. A thumb wheel switch is used to set the desired number of rotations. Provision is made to remove the lid of the acrylic drum by unscrewing just one knob
