The agglomeration process can solve several material problems and improve your product characteristics.

1️⃣ Improve flowing properties - Larger products flow much better than smaller, because they have a less surface area to stick on

2️⃣ Improve dispersibility – Fine powder isn’t able to disperse as well as specially designed and enlarged particle material.

3️⃣ Adjust bulk density – That means to produce units with greater or lesser density exactly as needed

4️⃣ Dust reduction - is important and necessary in many cases for health reasons, especially with toxic materials, or simply to reduce the risk of explosions.

5️⃣ Reduce segregation aspects – This is needed to keep a uniform distribution of different ingredients by “gluing” the particles together, e.g. at dishwasher tabs or pharmaceutical substances in tablets.

Which process can you use ❓

✅ Non-Pressure agglomeration: Pelletizing, conditioning, mixing, de-dusting, micro-pelletizing
The material is been processed in the presence of a binder to form agglomerates

✅ Pressure agglomeration: Granulation, briquetting
Some materials put under extreme pressure adhere to themselves

Testing is often necessary to determine the equipment type, or even a combination of different equipment.

👉 Invest your time to find out the best fiting process, before you invest money.
