Agglomeration, granulation and grain enlargement
Adhesion and agglomeration of particles to roundish fragments, scabs, prills or pellets.
Inter-particular bridging can occur through melt adhesion, reaction, crystallisation, dipoles or hardening.
Compared to finely dispersed materials, grain-enlarged materials flow better, are better suspendable, soluble, sinkable and pressable.
Moreover, agglomerated materials are less at risk of segregation.
Grain agglomerations with high density are often called granulates, pellets, prills or scabs.
“Agglomerates” usually means grain agglomerations with large porosity, low density and good solubility.
amixon® can realise gentle agglomeration up to build-up granulation with high energy input.
