A new practical method for self-control of the fluidized bed granulation process will be described. The method consists of moisture feedback control and program control of each operation (i.e. mixing, granulation and drying). An IR moisture sensor which is resistant to powders and dusts has been designed and developed to continuously measure and control the granule moisture content in fluidized bed granulation. The effect of the moisture content, imbibition rate and time required for fixed command control on granule growth is discussed, and a model of agglomeration and the mechanism of granule growth is proposed. On the basis of the results obtained granule growth was fully controlled by means of the moisture feedback control and, in addition, automation of the fluidized bed granulation process was eventually established.
