An introduction to Spheronization (or Marumerization)

Spheronization (or Marumerization) is the process where extrudates (the output from an extruder) are shaped into small rounded or spherical granules. In practice these usually vary in size from 0.4 to about 3.0 mm. The use of these spheroids can be relevant for a wide variety of industries.

Dry Granulation a material sparing method


Granulation of pharmaceutical powder is often required to prevent segregation of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) and/or to enhance the blend flowability, which is critical to ensure consistent tablet mass (weight) on rotary tablet presses. Dry granulation has been known for decades. The main benefit is a lower cost of operation compared to wet granulation. But most interestingly, it’s much easier to contain a roller compactor to process high potent drugs. It’s also a truly continuous process, which is a big trend these days. One have to point out that in the past decade, equipment manufacturers have introduced more instrumentation and advanced control systems, such as Gerteis or LB Bohle to name a few, allowing a more consistent density on the ribbons through a gap control loop system
