Granules for Direct Compression

Tablet is formed from DC Granules

With DC granules, Dr. Paul Lohmann® manufactures a product line that is ideally suited for direct tableting for pharmaceutical applications  and food supplements. These directly compressible granules based on Calcium, Magnesium, Iron and Zinc Salts simplify tablet production thanks to their special properties such as improved flowability and reduced dust formation. Decreased energy, labor, and capital costs as well as the increase in overall product stability are just some of the other benefits.

Benefits of DC granules

  • Excellent tabletting properties
  • Improved flowability
  • Decrease dust generation
  • Lower costs, faster processing

In wet granulation, physically solid and larger granules are formed from fine or coarse powders by adding a granulating liquid (water with or without binder). Proven binders for granules with good flowability and good printing properties are maltodextrin (M), corn starch (S), polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) (P), citric acid (CA) and gum arabic (GA).

MODIFICATION OF DC GRANULES BY usage of micronized raw materials OFFERS FURTHER ADVANTAGES

  • Combination of micronization and granulation
  • Neutral taste
  • No sandiness
  • Good flowability
  • Good compression properties
