Size-based Segregation of Pharmaceutical Powders

Size-based Segregation of Pharmaceutical Powders

This is the CFD-DEM simulation of fine, poly-disperse pharamaceutical powder in a closed tube. It can be clearly seen that size segregation is caused by the counter-current airflow which is induced by the particle stream falling downwards. This kind of segregation also applies to all other kinds of fine, poly-disperse particles in other industries
