Tailored granulation for smart manufacturing
Q: How can we use granulation to solve tableting challenges?
Wet granulation—an important operation in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and food industries—uses various technologies to convert powders into granules suitable for tablet compression. Powders vary greatly, and tableting processes have a large number of critical process parameters. By investigating these parameters using a Quality by Design approach, you can tailor your granulation process to produce a formulation that is well-suited to high-speed, production-scale tablet presses. The following are some examples of how you can address tableting problems by adjusting your granulation process.
