Applications in Industry
There are amount of dosage forms in pharmaceutical, and many of them need to control the environment humidity in manufacturing, such as tablet, suppository, powder, liniment, ampoule, capsule, blood products, diagnostic reagent, etc. effervescent tablet and soft capsule are the most typical applications.
Effervescent tablet can be made by dry granulating, wet granulating and direct tableting. And there are amount of auxiliary materials inside, many of them are hydrophilic such as disintegrate, binder, diluent, lubricant, sugar substitute and colorant, etc. Normally we need to control RH at 20％～25％ and temperature at 15-25℃。 So desiccant rotors were widely used in this kind of products manufacturing and packing.
Soft capsule make sure the effective medicine components be released and absorbed in digestive organs because of its gelatin wrap, and avoid unpleasant smell and taste, so more and more capsules will be used in oral drugs and health care products. To dry capsules we can use turn cage drying, tracked drying and pallet drying. But we can't use high temperature to dry, normally the best drying condition for capsule is RH with 20-30%, that is a big problem for air conditioner, but for desiccant silica gel rotors that is an excellent solution.
