A simplified model for computer simulation of agglomeration in the Wurster coating process was constructed using droplet size distribution and the relation between the size of agglomerates and the number of primary particles composing them experimentally determined. Computer simulations were applied to the cases where a 2.5% aqueous solution of hydroxypropyl cellulose (containing sodium carboxymethyl cellulose of 10% on a dry basis) was sprayed on four kinds of sharply fractionized lactose…

COMPUTER SIMULATION OF FLUIDIZED BED GRANULATION BY A TWO-DIMENSIONAL RANDOM COALESCENCE MODEL
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
Suppression of Agglomeration in Fluidized Bed Coating. III. Hofmeister Series in Suppression of Particle Agglomeration
TLDR
Sodium citrate and potassium citrate are regarded as very useful pharmaceutical additives for the suppression of particle agglomeration in actual pharmaceutical coating.
Feasibility of protein spray coating using a fluid-bed Würster processor.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that spray coating, particularly when used in conjunction with rational stabilization strategies, is a feasible alternative to other methods of preparing dried pharmaceutical proteins.
Computer Simulation of Agitation Fluidized Bed Granulation by a Two-Dimensional Random Addition Model
Computer simulation by a two-dimensional random addition model was proposed to elucidate the mechanisms of granule growth and compaction process of agitation fluidized bed granulation. In this paper,
FLUID BED ENCAPSULATION OF PARTICLES: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE
ABSTRACT The fluid bed encapsulation process consists of spraying a coating solution into a fluidized bed of solid particles. After several cycles of wetting–drying, a continuous film is formed. This
