Control of Particle Size and Porosity in Continuous Fluidized-Bed Layering Granulation Processes
Particle formulation processes such as continuous fluidized-bed layering granulation (FBLG) are widely applied in chemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries. Particle size and particle porosity are important product properties in FBLG. In this paper, a new concept is presented for the simultaneous control of both properties. The new concept allows stable process operation, automatic adjustment of the desired product properties, and rejection of unforseen disturbances.
