Basics of Material Agglomeration

When selecting the optimum particle size enlargement technology for a specific application, both the specifications of the feed material as well as the requirements for the final product need to be considered.

Agglomeration is a specific particle size enlargement process in which particles are 'glued' together to increase their particle size. Reasons to increase particle size can be to improve flowability, dispersibility/wettability, density, reducing dust or product appearance and to prevent segregation.

Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems recently hosted a free educational webinar focusing on continuous agglomeration technologies such as the Schugi® Flexomix and how devices like it can improve material characteristics.

The webinar reviewed:

  • The principles agglomeration & wet granulation - how it works
  • Why agglomerate materials - benefits & problems
  • Technologies available for wet granulation
  • Factors and considerations in planning an agglomeration process
  • Applications and materials that improve with agglomeration

This webinar is recommended for process engineers in the Chemical, Food, Pharmaceutical, Mineral and Cosmetic industries.

The webinar consists of a presentation of 30 minutes by agglomeration expert Marc Jacobs and concluded with a question & answer forum.
