Granulation is a process that combining finer particles together in order to produce coarser
particles. The purpose of granulation is to improve the flow properties of the particles, to modify
the bulk densities and the dissolution rates of the particles. The objective of this project is to do
an experimental study on the drying of wet granules and the effect of over wetting in particles.
Wet granules composed of flour were dried in under various volumes of liquid solution. The
effects of the conditions on the properties of granules such as diameter, drying rate and density
of the granules are investigated. The relationships between the operating conditions and the
drying rates were also examined. This project will reflect the important of over wetting study in
granulation process. The writer will explained on related theories regarding granulation and
relate it on drying granules with the effect of over wetting process. As the project continues, the
objective of the project is clearly arising and this project will reply to the problem statement
