Outside of the pharmaceutical industry, granulators are rotating grinders that are used to scrape scrap parts and melt delivery systems into feedstock sized granules for reuse. In the pharmaceutical world, granulation is one of the more important processes in the production of drugs and medicines as the granules that are produced are used directly as drugs or serve as an intermediate product in the manufacture of tablets or capsules.
Over 60% of pharmaceutical products are produced as tablets, capsules, or similar. Because of this, granulation systems play an extremely important role in producing tablets by efficiently granulating powder-like particles. Aaron Equipment carries several granulators including high shear and oscillating non-plastic granulators.
High shear granulators are used for shaping processes in the pharmaceutical industry. This happens in a closed container with blending tools and creates a denser granulate than the fluidized bed process. From there, a dosed distribution using a spray nozzle is used to obtain an even granulate.
Oscillating granulators are used for slightly gentle homogenization, size reduction, grading and sieving of powders and granules in pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries. In use, the product is charged from the top through a feed hopper and the material falls on rotor blades at the bottom. Through this process, the particle downsizes and gets pushed outward from an opening at the bottom.

Purchasing used equipment is typically 40-50% cheaper than buying new and can save thousands of dollars. Buying used permits the purchaser to control the delivery date, often just a few weeks, whereas new equipment delivery can take months or even a year to manufacture.
