An agglomeration process frequently requires a premixing step to blend two or more raw materials, add a powder or liquid binder to a material, or combine fresh feed with recycled material from the agglomeration process. By providing intimate and intensive mixing, premixing can reduce the amount of binder needed for agglomerate strength.

Sometimes a raw material crushing or milling operation can provide premixing, such as when you both mill and mix feed and binder in the same machine. In other cases you can use a premixer that preconditions and agglomerates the raw material before you begin the actual forming and finishing agglomeration operation.
