Granulation, or agglomeration, is the particle size enlargement of powders. Granulation of the different powder raw ingredients ensures that ingredients do not segregate and that the granules flow well into the tablet press or capsule filler. S3 offers state-of-the-art equipment for both dry and wet granulation from the industry’s leading technology suppliers.
GEA Collette have produced high-shear mixers for pharmaceutical granulation for over 50 years, and are well established as the market leaders for Single Pot Processors - high shear wet granulation and drying in the same process vessel.
GEA Collette continuous wet granulation and drying system - the ConsiGma™ - is now revolutionising the pharmaceutical industry’s approach to wet granulation, offering huge reductions in R&D costs, time to market and production costs.
The Dry Granulation route offers further cost reductions, and Gerteis’ range of highly sophisticated roller compactors allow more materials to be granulated than any other roller compactor available.
