  How to predict powder electrostatics to optimize your loss-in-weight feeder for continuous manufacturing?

In the pharmaceutical industry, the trend is to move from conventional batch manufacturing to continuous manufacturing processes. The challenges for such change are numerous, but many papers are published to solve those issues and improve production. This is the case of the paper published by Carl Allenspach from Bristol-Myers Squibb (International Journal of Pharmaceutics 596 (2021)....


  New App Note - Characterization of lactose powders for DPI applications

new-app-note-characterization-lactose-powders-dpiIn this article, the characterization of lactose powders for use in DPI applications is discussed. We present new results obtained from state-of-the-art characterization methods allowing us to gather insightful information on the powder behavior. Moreover, electrostatic properties which are of great interest for DPI applications in particular with respect to drug release from the lactose carrier are investigated....


  GranuTools powder characterization study on the Influence of the drug load on pharmaceutical blends processability.

It is well known that flow properties of powders are governed by the intrinsic grain properties and forces acting on and between the grains. It is no surprise that the amount of API present in a blend impacts powder processability. To this end, GranuTools has developed, over the past years, a whole range of state-of-the-art equipments to allow characterizing the flow properties of powders and granular materials in many different geometries to match process conditions....


  Extended range of instruments to characterize powders and granular materials in various conditions/geometries

GranuTools now offering its expertise and extended range of instruments to characterize powders and granular materials in various conditions/geometries. It is well known that flow properties of powders are governed by the intrinsic grain properties and forces acting on and between the grains. However, what one often forgets is the dramatic influence of the conditions under which powders are processed (stress state, flow field, relative humidity, and temperature)....

  Granutools share their knowledge on pharma powders with a series of free online webinars

Webinars presented cover many subjects and aspects of the pharmaceutical industry: from lactose to API, from their flowability to their electrostatics, from the feedstock to the production lines, Granutools’ webinars covered a wide range of subjects. Their expertise in the field is recognized by prestigious clients of the pharma world such as DFE Pharma or the RCPE....


  Granutools adds the Granupack High Temperature to their range

granupack-measure-the-influence-temperature-polymerThe Granupack is helping many industries to understand better their powder behavior! A new instrument is now available in the Granutools products, the Granupack High Temperature which does everything the Granupack does but also enable you to control the temperature of the cell with precision (up to 200°C). You will be surprised to discover how even slight changes in temperature can affect the flowing properties of your powders...


  Electrostatics in Pharmaceutical Powders An Insight from Molecular Level to Manufacturing

In this new webinar, Granutools will join forces with the RCPE to give you new insight on the importance of electrostatics for pharmaceuticals powders. Together they will explain how the material properties, particle properties, and formulation properties will affect the tribo-charging and how it is possible to use the GranuCharge as a proxy of industrial processes like a twin screw feeder....
