Here is an Example
PSD falls short however, because it does not fully measure whether a material is really suitable for making tablets. But, since most glucosamine is supplied through a web of brokers, traders, and distributors, PSD is the only measure available to try to have some consistency. Using TSI granules with high compressibility instead, and from a single, traceable source, is the only way to truly ensure proper, consistent tablet formation.
TSI’s expertise is that we understand the most critical aspects for each finished product format – from tablets to gels – and we know how to customize glucosamine material to ensure that our customers achieve their objectives. The results are more efficient processes using fewer resources producing higher quality products.
A tablet manufacturer has few options other than to use particle-size distribution (PSD) to try to gauge the compressibility of the granules they are using since this is a standard measurement among all raw material producers.
