Consistency in production of granules is crucial and hard, as not much is known about solid processing as compared to fluid mixing. Considerable efforts have been made in the past years to gain fundamental understanding in this matter but most researchers have seen to be interested in the batch process, as it offers advantages with respect to quality assurance. This is none other than due to a batch can always be accepted or rejected. However, obviously continuous process offers lots of advantages too and one of them is that they are a more reliable option for the large scale industry. Thus purpose of this study is to get a better understanding of the granulation process in a continuous mixer type of granulator. Discrete Element Method(EDEM) simulation is to be performed to look into the particle dynamics on the scale of individual particles.
