Dry granulation is the most Lean, efficient method for conditioning powders. Compared to wet granulation it uses less equipment and processing steps and is unlikely to damage the ingredients.
With Wet Granulation the batch size must match the machine minimum and maximum fill capacities.
Dry Granulation is a continuous manufacturing process which removes the need to spend time constructing the correct batch sizes.
With fewer process variables it is simpler to validate, optimize and scale. The Dry Granulation approach is truly lean and straight forward way to condition powders. Dry granulation enables efficient manufacturing.
The simplest way to condition powders.
Dry Granulation using a Roll Compaction Machine is the process of compacting primary particles into larger granules in order to:
Roll Compaction involves feeding powder between two counter-rotating rolls, where it is pressed together to create a dense, compact ribbon which is then milled to achieve a uniform particle size.
By controlling the following parameters on the Roll Compactor it is possible to generate the ideal powder for your process needs:
