Title: Powder Flow Basics
Presenters: Jim Prescott and Rogerio Ruiz, Jenike & Johanson
Outline: Andrew Jenike developed the theory of solids flow and published the results of his research in 1968. This same theory, with half century of evolution, has been successfully used for evaluating and selecting powder and blend handling equipment, helping manufacturers worldwide to meet the most stringent regulation of the pharmaceutical industry. This session will cover:
Flow problems in solid dosage manufacturing and how this affects quality and efficiency.
Powder flow patterns
Powder flow properties and equipment used to measure them (flow testers)
How to evaluate and select bins, totes, and hoppers in pharmaceutical operations for reliable flow.
