Dwell time – How it affects tablet compression



Many formulations that are used to develop tablets are sensitive to how exactly compression is performed. In today’s market, it is imperative that tablet production is fast, efficient and accurate. The challenge is to ensure the dwell time in the manufacturing process is optimised while guaranteeing fault-free production.

This paper will explore what dwell is, why it is important for tablet compression and what measures can be put in place to ensure optimal dwell time is used.
