Continuous Manufacturing with the FT4 Powder Rheometer®

[2019.12.02, Mon 11:03] This article explains the application of Freeman Technology's FT4 Powder Rheometer® and GEA's ConsiGmaTM continuous high shear wet granulation and drying system to understand the relationship between granule features and differences in processing parameters and formulation in a continuous processing environment. Freeman Technology's FT4 Powder Rheometer® offers automated quantification of the properties of bulk materials. The FT4 Powder Rheometer has become an essential tool to investigate the flow and caking behavior of our products. To investigate the granule characteristics, a range of experiments were carried out on two basic powder formulations of dicalcium phosphate and paracetamol by changing the granulator screw speed, input powder feed rate, and the water content. The results show that manufacturing environments impact the properties of the granule and there are a range of manufacturing routes available to produce the granule quality desired. Freeman Technology specialises in systems for measuring the flow properties of powders and has over 15 years' experience in powder flow and powder characterisation. Freeman Technology's solutions include the FT4 Powder Rheometer®, a uniquely universal powder tester, and the Uniaxial Powder Tester, a complementary tool for quick and robust powder assessment.
