Deaerator keeps a chemical's bulk density in check

One such product is the herbicide Sencor, which is used mainly by soybean growers for broadleaf control. The herbicide's active ingredient is referred to as "Sencor technical" [ herein also called "the chemical"] and has a median particle size of about 35 microns.
