Abstract

This study provides new findings on the effects of blade speed (300 versus 450 rpm) using a three-blade flat impeller during dry powder granulation within a high shear mixer. It was possible to achieve roping behavior, which is recommended for achieving good liquid distribution and nucleation, with flat blades at two different impeller speeds.
