Glatt HSG 800 Liter High shear Granulator
High shear granulation is a shaping process for granulation that has been enhanced for application in the pharmaceutical industry. A binder liquid is fed to the powder particles in a closed container with blending tools and a chopper. Dense granules are formed through the liquid and solid bridges that result. For optimal handling and further processing of a product.
High shear granulation in a closed container with blending tools driven from above or below has long been applied by the pharmaceutical industry. The mechanical effect of the blending tools – irrespective of whether in batches or continuous operation – creates a denser granulate than the fluidized bed process.
