Abstract The effect of particle size variation on tablet tensile strength for spray-dried lactose, Sta-Rx 1500 and Avicel PH-101 was investigated. Decreasing the particle size of spray-dried lactose and Sta-Rx 1500 resulted in stronger compacts whereas the tablet tensile strength of Avicel PH-101 was unaffected by particle size variation. The Heckel relationship, at two different contact times, was used to examine the predominant compaction mechanism. This was independent of the size fractions studied for all three materials. Angle of repose and Hausner ratio measurements indicated a correlation between the internal forces of friction and cohesion of the sized powders and the tensile strength of compacts formed from them.
