Objective - To develop a bladeless Single Vessel Processor (SVP) which utilises controllable fluid dynamics to perform all of the unit operations required for tablet production between ingredient dispensing and final tablet compaction without material transfers. Conclusions - A prototype SVP design which avoids material transfers was found to provide the basic elements for the performance of all of the required unit processes within the same vessel in a bladeless environment, which has a range of potential benefits in pharmaceutical powder processing
