Enlarging particle size by agglomeration can be achieved by several methods. The method best suited to your application depends on several factors. In this two-part article, an agglomeration expert discusses which factors to consider when selecting a method as well as how to size the agglomeration equipment for your application. Part I [which appeared in the February 1999 issue] covers selection factors related to your feed and agglomerate. Part II concludes the article by discussing selection factors related to the equipment and your plant location, how to use an agglomeration method selection table, and how to select and size your equipment.

Factors to consider about the agglomeration equipment include batch or continuous processing and capacity; wet or dry processing; simultaneous processing; and space and energy requirements along with investment, operating, and maintenance costs.
