The roller compaction process has been among the most important innovations in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. Over 75 % of pharmaceutical formulations are in the form of tablets and capsules. These are comprised of different active ingredients which exhibit different physical and chemical characteristics. The roller compactor serves to compact and granulate the powders. This compaction process makes the resulting granules to have better flowability and higher density easily and economically processed into tablets .
In essence, there are two processes used to achieve compaction in the dry granulation process. These are slugging and roller compaction. In slugging, the tablet press machine is used while in roller compaction, the roller compactor is the equipment used. The slugging method has proven to have many technical challenges and therefore the roller compactor method is the most preferred. The roller compactor machine forces fine powder between two opposing and rotating rollers to .
