Mixing of ingredients, or dispersion of one phase into another, is an operation widely and most commonly used in pharmaceutical Industry. It is difficult to find a pharmaceutical product in which mixing is not done at one stage or the other during its manufacturing. Whenever a product contains more than one component a mixing or blending stage is must required in the manufacturing process to ensure even distribution of active ingredients, to ensure an even appearance, to ensure that he dosage form releases the drug at the correct dose at the desired rate etc. A pharmaceutical formulation with low amount of active ingredient will be in effective or with too high amount of active ingredient may be lethal. So, mixing is very important process and the final mixture required should be completely mixed and homogenous for such type of formulations.
