Asymptotic limits on tablet coating variability based on cap-to-band thickness distributions: a discrete element model (DEM) study

Chunlei Pei & James Elliott
The uniformity of the coating thickness distribution is an important quality metric in the manufacture of pharmaceutical tablets during the spray coating process. An investigation of the asymptotic limits of coating thickness variability of tablets of varying shape was carried out based on the cap-to-band coating thickness distributions. A theoretical analysis shows that the cap-to-band coating thickness ratio is expected to be equal to the cap-to-band area ratio projected onto the spray direction divided by...
