Top Spray Granulation PAT Monitoring by NIR: Calibration vs. PCA Trend Approach

To determine the endpoint for Top Spray Granulation using NIR technology. To establish the correlation between the Moisture Content (expressed as Loss on Drying), the Particle Size Distribution (PSD) of the mixture and the response of the NIR device. To find a mathematical and statistical approach to the in-process control using derivative method, PCA calculation and trend approach.
