In our previous paper [Watano S., et al., Chem. Pharm. Bull., 51(7), 747-750 (2003)], a novel compression tester, which enables the vertical and radial pressure transmission measurement, has been developed and quantitative analysis of rheo-mechanical properties of wet-mass powder prepared by different kneading times was conducted. In this study, the compression test was conducted by using the kneaded wet-mass powders prepared by different moisture contents. Pressure transmission characteristics…

Scale-up of wet kneading in a novel vertical high shear kneader.
Scale-up of wet kneading in the novel vertical high shear kneader found that the properties of the dried pellets and their scale-up characteristics were well expressed by an agitation power per unit vessel volume and dimensionless Froude number.
Prediction of granule physical property by a novel compression energy of wet powder.
It was concluded that the compression energy of the wet powder could be used for the formulation study and the process control of wet granulation.
Determination of optimal formulation for extrusion granulation by compression test of wet kneaded mass.
It was found that addition of a binder (HPC-L) to pharmaceutical powders lowered the load of a high-compressing type extruder, since the binder reduced the friction among the wet mass during extrusion.
Compression physics in the formulation development of tablets.
Various properties of drugs and excipients, such as moisture content, particle size and distribution, polymorphism, amorphism, crystal habit, hydration state, and lubricant and binder level of the blend that have an influence on compaction are discussed.


Quantitative analysis of water dispersion conditions and pressure transmission characteristics of a wet kneaded mass.
It can be concluded that the developed compaction tester can quantitatively evaluate the water dispersion condition of a wet kneaded mass and also predict properties of the final extruded products.
