IPA’s Philosophy – The Fundamental Roll Compaction Granulation Process

Roll compaction systems are essential in industrial, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical manufacturing, comprising three key components: (1) feed system, (2) roll compactor, and (3) mill. This process, also known as dry granulation, involves the compression of fine powders between two rotating rolls to eliminate air and form a compact. The properties of the compact, such as

The Benefits of Roller Compaction Over Slugging

Slugging and roller compaction are both used in the industrial, pharmaceutical, & nutraceutical industry for granulation, but they differ in their processes and outcomes. While both slugging and roller compaction are methods of granulation in manufacturing, roller compaction is often favored for its efficiency, control over particle size, and suitability for continuous processing. The IPA

Impact Milling Vs. Comil

PRINT THIS POST Common Misconceptions An Impact mill creates more fines than the Comil. TRUTH: Impacting the particle reduced overall fines, as compared to the Comil “crushing” method. An Impact mill creates a wider particle size distribution compared to a Comil. TRUTH: An impact mill hits each particle with the same impact force, creating a
