HIGH SHEAR MIXER GRANULATOR
WET GRANULATION PROCESS
Granulation refers to the process in which primary dust particles are made to adhere to form larger entities of multiple particles called granules.
In this process of wet granulation, the granules are formed by adding an agglutinative solution.
The granulation solution contains a solvent or carrier material that must be volatile so that it can be removed by drying and not being toxic. Typical fluids include water, ethanol, and isopropanol alone or in combination. The liquid solution can be aqueous or solvent-based. Aqueous solutions have the advantage of being safer to treat than other solvents.
The granulation process combines one or more dust particles and forms a granule that will allow the formation of tablets within the required limits. In this way a predictable and repeatable process is possible and quality tablets can be produced using the STE TECPHARM technology.
The High Shear Mixer Granulator is designed to optimize the wet granulation process. Used to turn a fine-powder heterogeneous mixture into a uniform granulation, with increased particle size and higher density, offering proper flow and compactness properties, in a short time process and with repeatability.
