Roller Compaction For Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Fitzpatrick is a worldwide leader in providing superior roller compaction equipment for pharmaceutical dry granulation processing.


Discover how we support pharma dry granulation.


Pharmaceutical Dry Granulation

Fitzpatrick understands and appreciates that all pharmaceutical materials have unique characteristics that affect their handling ability.

The variables of flowability, hardness, friability and moisture content all affect the ability to process powders efficiently.

Manufacturers of pharmaceutical products utilize dry granulation to granulate challenging and poor-flowing materials characterized as being moisture and / or heat-sensitive.  This process enables them to form granules without the addition of a liquid solution.
