Webinar Focuses on Optimizing Granulation

August 23, 2012

A recently recorded webinar from Malvern Instruments highlights the benefits of real-time particle sizing for the effective monitoring and control of granulation processes.

Granulation is a widely applied unit operation, especially in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, with operators sharing the common goal of controlling particle size to meet granulate performance goals. The webinar features a discussion of how the particle sizing techniques of spatial filter velocimetry and laser diffraction can be employed to generate a continuous information flow that supports tight control of the process, optimizing product quality and reducing operating costs.

Spatial filter velocimetry and laser diffraction are both proven, robust particle sizing technologies for continuous, real-time measurement on- or in-line. Together they provide effective analytical solutions for all granulation processes. Laser diffraction is especially suited to dry compaction, while spatial filter velocimetry answers the need for in-vessel measurement during high-shear granulation. Both can be applied in fluidized bed processing. The data generated not only provide real-time quality control but also improve process understanding and control, promoting truly optimal operation.
