Abstract: The present study illustrates and evaluates the capability of the double-barrier-desiccant system to regulate the humidity inside a medicament powder chamber. The model medicament chamber chosen was the reservoir-based dry powder inhaler Taifun. The study was focussed to screen the critical parameters affecting the function of the desiccant system. For this purpose a novel simulation method was developed and applied to predict the progress of the internal relative humidity of the powder chamber. The simulation…
