What Are Roller Compactors?

Roller compactors are a continuous, directly compressible, dry granulation system. The main use for roller compactors is to improve material flow characteristics, as well as increase material density. This is due to the vertical product flow system that uses a tapered feed screw. This allows for the delivery of the material to the fully contained compaction zone of the rolls. And increases product yields and minimizes product fines.

Vector TF-156 Roller CompactorThe overall aim for many roller compactors in the pharmaceutical industry is to use its unique roll system to compact powders into sheets or briquettes. These compacted sheets are then milled to produce specifically sized granules. If there are any particles that perhaps fall outside the specified range, they can easily be recirculated back into the machine to be reprocessed into the desired size.

The granule size produced by roller compactors varies by roll pressure, not roll gap. Most utilize a floating roll that ensures the necessary compaction forces are consistent to address variations of incoming material flow. The gap between the fixed roll and the floating roll will always vary as necessary to ensure a constant compaction force is applied.
