Computer simulation of granulation in a fluidized bed process was carried out using a two-dimensional random coalescence model, In this contribution, seed circles of two sizes were granulated by circular spray mist with radii obeying log-normal distribution on the basis of adhesion probability, in which the adhesion force of spray mist was taken into consideration. This simulation was then applied to fluidized bed granulation, in which a 7:3 weight ratio mixture of lactose and corn starch was…

Evaluation of models for predicting spray mist diameter for scaling-up of the fluidized bed granulation process.
TLDR
By precise selection of experimental conditions, this work was able to identify a suitable prediction model that considers changes in binder solution, nozzle dimension, and spray conditions and demonstrated that the prediction model proposed by Mulhem optimally estimated spray mist diameter when each coefficient was modified.
