  2. 2. DRY GRANULATION PROCESSDRY GRANULATION PROCESS • Dry granulation may be used if the materials have sufficient inherent binding or cohesive properties to form granules. • Dry granulation refers to the process of granulating without the use of liquids. • There are two dry granulation methods used in the pharma industry: slugging and roll compaction.

  3. 3. Slugging (Old Method)Slugging (Old Method) • material to be granulized is first made into a large compressed mass or "slug" typically by way of a tablet press using large flat-faced tooling. Disadvantages of SluggingDisadvantages of Slugging • single batch processing • frequent maintenance changeover • poor process control • poor economies of scale • low manufacturing output per hour • excessive air and sound pollution, • increased use of storage containers, • more energy and time required to produce 1 Kg of slugs than 1 Kg of roller compact Aspirin SluggingAspirin Slugging Slugging Tablet Press (Tablet Press Company)Slugging Tablet Press (Tablet Press Company)
  4. 4. • material particles are consolidated and densified by passing the material between two high-pressure rollers. • densified material from a roller compactor is then reduced to a uniform granule size by milling. • capable of handling a large amount of material in a short period of time • Invented by Francis Xavier Chilson Roller Compactor / Chilsonator (New Method)Roller Compactor / Chilsonator (New Method)

  6. 6. Roller OrientationRoller Orientation A. Horizontal orientation In horizontal roll orientation the loss of material due to bypass is high as compared to other designs B. Vertical orientation Loss of un-compacted material is minimal in vertical orientation due to independence of feed to gravitational forces C. Incline orientation (position between horizontal and vertical) The use of inclined roll orientation decreases bypass from 15-20% to 7% 1: Filling hopper, 2: Feeding auger/screw feeder, 2’: Screw feeder, 3: Tamping auger, 4: Rolls, 5: Flake crusher, 6: Granulator, 7 and 8: Two stage diagonal granulation system using coarse and fine granulator, respectively. • The roll orientation plays significant role in generation and minimization of bypass.
  7. 7. Variables of Roller CompactionVariables of Roller Compaction • In the slip or entry region powder starts to move but at a speed slower than the roll speed, thus indicating that slips occur therefore termed “slips”. • The nip region starts at a roll angle α, (nip angle), when the wall velocity of the powder becomes equal to that of the rolls. • The release region starts when the roll gap starts to increase again and its size depends on the stored elastic strains in the compact, release rate of compact,t and the roll speed.

  8. 8. Requirements for Roller CompactionRequirements for Roller Compaction • adequate supply of the powder to the nip region and entire conveying of powder entering from nip region into the narrowest part of the roll gap. • uniform distribution of the compaction pressure over the whole roll-gripped mass. • adequate, effective, and uniform de-aeration of powder mass via vacuum before it reaches the nip region. • material to be processed should be compressible, should have consistent increase in density with force, suitable for milling operation and recompression.
  9. 9. Advantages of dry granulation:Advantages of dry granulation: • Useful for heat or moisture sensitive materials. • Less equipment and space than that required by wet granulation. • Improve tablet disintegration since it does not involve the use of water so it increases water-uptake ability of the disintegrant. • This method is of value in the production of certain dosage forms as effervescent tablets. Disdvantages of dry granulation:Disdvantages of dry granulation: •Requires high duty machine if compared with direct compaction •Since it is dry process, more dust is produced which may contaminate other drug In my opinion:In my opinion: I prefer dry granulation because it is:I prefer dry granulation because it is: •economical,economical, •use less spaceuse less space •it eliminates addition of moisture and heat which contributes to the product’s degradationit eliminates addition of moisture and heat which contributes to the product’s degradation •Mechanical strength of the product in more uniformMechanical strength of the product in more uniform •Machine is easy to maintain after operationMachine is easy to maintain after operation When to Use Dry Granulation?When to Use Dry Granulation? • this method is used when direct compression is not applicable (e.g., large-dose or poor compressibility drugs) • when wet granulation cannot be used (e.g., drugs sensitive to heat or moisture). • Vitamins and effervescent tablets are examples of products prepared by dry granulation.
