This chapter provides an overview of the granulation and tabletting processes, with a focus on wet granulation. The emphasis is on the applications of wet granulation, including practical advice for the design, operation, and control of the equipment, as well as specific industrial applications. Although the mechanisms are fairly well understood, achieving better product control remains a challenge, and therefore is an active area of research.
