Combination of Rapid Mixer Granulator and Fluid Bed Dryer
The rapid mixer granulator is used along with the fluid bed dryer in the pharmaceutical industry. The function of which is to mix various ingredients in required ratios. As a result formation of granules and powders occur. The granules or powder containing moisture, so the moisture of the powder and granules is removed by fluid bed dryer. Which is then applicable to be used for further processes. There are fluid bed dryers of various sizes which have working capacities ranging from 50 liters to 450 liters. The rapid mixer granulator has working capacities ranging from 40 liters to 1000 liters. The validation of RMG mainly includes installation qualification, operational qualification, and performance qualification. The RMG and FBD are installed in the working location as per the requirements.
Design and Working
The rapid mixer granulator consists of a chopper and an impeller (mixer) which are both enclosed in a container.
The chopper and the mixer are driven by two separate motors. The mixer mixes the granules with a binding agent which is delivered from the spray nozzle at the top. During the mixing of granules with the binding liquid lumps are formed, and these lumps are broken down by the chopper to maintain the uniform size of the granules. An observing viewport is provided at the top to view the process and a vent filter is placed at the top to prevent the loss of granules. The binding liquid that is fed into the container is delivered by the spray nozzle by the pressure of compressed air from the system. The high-pressure air helps the proper atomization of the binding liquid particles while spraying. If the binding agent is a dry powder it can be added directly along with the ingredients.

- It is an advantage of Rapid Mixer Granulator that it has a high production rate for batch processing methods.
- Rapid Mixer Granulator has a High-quality mixing and granulation of homogenous granules.
- Rapid Mixer Granulator has Uniform color distribution in the final product. So the color of the beginning and at the endpoint remains the same.
- In Rapid Mixer Granulator Lumps are eliminated by precise mechanisms and devices.
- In Rapid Mixer Granulator a Single piece of equipment is used for both dry and wet mixing in some cases.
- In Rapid mixer Granulator the chopper and impeller cause high shear mixing and granulation which makes wet granulation easier.
What Is Ampere Load In RMG?
Ampere load is the current which is used by the chopper and impeller for the rotation of powder or granules. Ampere load is high at the start of the process and then gradually decreases as the load on the motor decreases.
Impeller and Chopper Speed in Rmg?
The speed of the impeller operating in a rapid mixer granulator is around about 200 revolutions per minute. The chopper is used for breaking large particles into small particles and it is operated in the speed range of 1440-2880 revolutions per minute.
What Is Purging Air In RMG?
Purging air is a type of clean air, which flushes the industrial process. Purging air is used to keep clean the surface of the rapid mixer granulator.
What Is Granulation End Point?
The endpoint of rapid mixer granulator is that point at which we receive our desired size of granules particles.
How much is the capacity of Rapid Mixer Granulator?
The gross capacity of rapid mixer granulator ranges from 10 liters to 2500 liters. And working capacity ranges from 8 liters to 2200 liters.
