This review of agglomeration technology focuses on the mechanisms of agitation (wet granulation) and compression (compaction) methods
Bryan J. Ennis, E&G Associates, Inc.
Powder agglomeration is used in a wide variety of the chemical process industries (CPI), and a virtually endless number of process options are available. Selection requires engineers to make a substantial number of design decisions, such as the choice between wet or dry processing, the intensity of mixing and shear rates, continuous versus batch operation, cross contamination of products and ease of cleaning. These choices must be made in light of desirable agglomerate end-use properties. Key agglomeration mechanisms and their impact on agglomeration processing are reviewed in this article. The impact on process selection is also touched upon within the context of mechanisms....
