The Influence Of Roller Compactor Process Parameters On Granule Properties

Processing powder blends can present a number of challenges: component powders may be poorly flowing in the process, the blends may be susceptible to segregation, or the formation of agglomerates may affect homogeneity. Granulation is used in a range of industries and applications to combine multiple components of a blend into a more free-flowing, homogeneous intermediate product for downstream processing. It is essential to identify powder properties that can be applied to characterise dry granulates in a relevant way, and to optimise dry granulation processes.

This application note details the joint study undertaken by Freeman Technology Ltd. and Gerteis Maschinen+Processengineering AG, to investigate how process parameters influenced the properties of the dry granulate of a placebo formulation.
