Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT) has been used successfully to study pellet motion within the Wurster coater. PEPT experiments were undertaken to understand how the parameters of batch size and partition gap interact with each other; and to determine their effects on the particle cycle time and the components of the particle cycle time: the flight and annulus times and their respective distributions. This enabled the determination of optimum operating conditions for a given set of process conditions.
