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.
