Production starts with accurate mixing and blending of ingredients to ensure accurate preparations.
Problems occur when variable and incorrect humidity levels interfere with the delicate balance.
Optimal environmental conditions ensure that excipients and APIs can be continuously and reliably blended, while avoiding the influence of excess moisture that may affect mechanical and chemical properties.
The right balance of moisture ensures that the granulating mixture remains in equilibrium with the air around it, maintaining the required moisture content for granules to form.
To guarantee accurate dosing and consistency, the weighing, mixing and blending should be under controlled climate conditions.
Perfect conditions are created by our desiccant dehumidification of the mixing, weighing and blending production premises or by adding the dry air directly into the process.
This avoids the risk of damp caked ingredients through moisture absorption or condensation. By controlling humidity conditions, unwanted agglomeration and clogging is avoided, and free-flowing powders is secured
Low humidity can be easily obtained with a desiccant dehumidification system. At low dewpoints desiccant dehumidification is superior to mechanical cooling, with tighter control and less energy consumption.
Product quality remains high and intact with reduced need for cleaning and less waste.
Benefits of using a Munters desiccant dehumidifier:
– Year-round consistent production irrespective of season
