The effect of powder flow properties on roll compaction behaviour of microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) and di-calcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD), which have distinctive flow properties, was experimentally investigated. A robust approach for determining the nip angle that defines the compaction region was also developed. It was found that powder flow properties play a significant role in roll compaction.
