This video provides a functional overview of the roller compaction process used in oral solid dose manufacturing where granules are formed without using a liquid solution. Forming granules without moisture requires compacting and densifying of the powders using a roller compactor, sometimes referred to as a Chilsonator.
Used by Drug Makers, Equipment Manufacturers, College and University Professors, Technical Schools, Training Consultants, Operating Personnel, Maintenance Personnel, Field Service Professionals, and Industry Regulators.
"...roller Compaction is used to eliminate segregation and produce a uniform particle size range for enhanced tableting and granular control. It is also used to improve material flow properties, control bulk density and particle hardness as well as control dust which decreases waste, clean-up and cross-contamination..."
"...compaction is the consolidation of powder particles by exerting a mechanical pressure on two rolls, one fixed and one floating, to produce a densified sheet of material..."
