  6.2 COMPRESSION:

STEP – I:

  • After receiving of QC approval for the blend, verify the Net Weight of the received blend as per status label in Granules Day Store.
  • Set the 35 stations (B-Tooling) Compression Machine. Compress the blend as per below parameters and In Process checks and take a sample for Dissolution (Qty. 20 tablets) and send to QC Department for Dissolution Analysis.
