Floating dosage forms rarely dissolve at a reproducible rate. Using a sinker in Apparatus 2 fixes the dosage form to a certain point and aids reproducibility. Sinkers can also be useful where dosage forms may stick to the sides of the vessel.

General guidelines to consider when choosing a sinker for your application include: 

  • Sinker Size - the sinker should have minimal surface contact with the tablet as this can affect the dissolution rate.
  • Sinker Weight - should be kept to a minimum - just enough to have a desired effect.
  • PTFE Coated Sinkers Magnetic - used with magnetic retrieval systems,  or where there may be a reaction between steel and the tablet.
  • Uncoated - type 316 stainless steel sinkers are more durable than coated sinkers.
  • Basket Sinkers - can be used but care should be taken that the outer coating of the tablet does not clog the mesh
  • Wire Spirals - should be as wide as practically possible to avoid clogging
