GranulatorProcess Understanding and Throughput Optimization

The project is currently being carried out in response to a rapidly rising demand for supplements in China. We are addressing the need for throughput optimization at the company’s production site, which suffers from insufficient capacity and several “bottlenecks” that are keeping production below the ideal tablet press speed.

Our team first completed process understanding and APC feasibility through a DOE study, and communicated the DOE and manufacturing observation results. We are now undergoing torque-based APC trials to confirm the solution on the small scale before scaling up to the manufacturing scale. This project has been projected to revenues for this company by $1.25 million each year.
