Evaluate the minimum consolidation time
(the maximum compaction speed) at which tablets of a satisfactory
quality can be produced.
Calculate at what speed different
production presses can offer the minimum satisfactory consolidation
time, and what tablet output can be expected from different presses
at that optimal speed.
Compare Feeding, Consolidation, Dwell,
Relaxation, Contact, Ejection and Total Tableting Times for various
Quantify the productivity of different
presses at the same consolidation time (i.e. the same compaction
Calculate and compare consolidation
time for different presses at the same productivity.
Calculate the Performance Efficiency
Factors (Feeding, Consolidation, and Ejection Efficiency Numbers).
Calculate Net Impeller Power (the target
quantity for scale up) for various wet mass conditions (using
density, viscosity, fill ratio, mixer speed, blade radius, or Newton
(power), Froude or Reynolds dimensionless numbers.
Recalculate Newton Power Number, given
Net Impeller Power, impeller speed, blade radius, and wet mass
Calculate wet mass viscosity, given Net
Impeller Power, blade radius and impeller speed.
Calculate Fill Ratio, given powder
weight, granulating liquid density, and liquid and bowl volumes.
