Granulators and High Shear mixers are an effective means
for turning powders into dense granules for tableting or coating.
To create the granules, powders are added to the mixing bowl
and the bowl is sealed. If necessary a dry binder may be added
with the powders or dispersed into the granulating liquid.
A large impeller spins at fairly slow speeds spinning
the powders into a vortex. After the powders are blended together,
the liquid is added to the product using a pump
or pressurized container. A chopper tool located in the bowl spins
at fairly high speeds shearing the granules and removing air.
The mixing continues until the desired end granule size
and density is achieved. The endpoint is often determined
via power consumption or torque of the main mixing tool drive
