Agglomeration Advisor: Agglomeration resources

Do you ever wonder how to find good information to solve an agglomeration problem? In this column, I’m going to share what I think are some of the most important works on agglomeration. Most are books I’ve referred to many times over the years.

My early experience with agglomeration was in ores and minerals: I began my career with Dravo Corp. (no longer operating) when taconite ore pelletizing was just developing. So it was natural that I would find Arthur F. Taggart’s excellent Handbook of Mineral Dressing: Ores and Industrial Minerals, a valuable resource. Originally published in 1927 and updated in 1945, this book, for its time and for years to come, was an important, thorough, and fundamental contribution to the beneficiation (separation into mineral and waste) of ferrous and nonferrous ores and industrial minerals. Interestingly, although it includes detailed descriptions of mineral comminution, flotation, separation, drying, and screening, it makes hardly any mention of size enlargement by agglomeration.
