Pressed powder scale up

My pressed powder is okay in the lab setting; but when I press it in the factory it swells up and breaks down. what might be the problem?! :-(

    Are you using the same press?

    Is your lab air conditioned and the factory isn’t? (Humidity)
    It’s usually very difficult for us to answer questions with such little information. 
  • Both sites are air conditioned. Can humidity affect it so much? What other information you may need? 
  • The lab one is a small one to make prototypes. The one for production is automated filling powder pressing etc. Quite different. @Perry
