EPSRC Follow-on project final technical report

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    The aim of this project was to demonstrate the principle of online moisture measurement on semi-scale fluidised bed dryers using ECT with and to scale up application of ECT from a lab-scale fluidised bed to a pilot-scale fluidised bed. To verify the developed technique, ECT sensors have been designed for several fluidised beds and tested in GEA Pharma Systems Ltd in Eastleigh, DuPont in Wilmington (USA) and GEA Technology Center in Bubendorf (Switzerland). Test results from drying, granulation and coating processes are given and analysed. Future work and key issues of online moisture measurement and scaling up from MP-1 to MP-4 are discussed in the end of this report.
