Mixers for growth-tumble agglomeration
Learn how you can combine mixing and agglomeration in the same process.
The type of particle movement required to mix dry powders can create ideal conditions for particle size enlargement - that is, agglomeration. In fact, mixers are used to make a range of agglomerated products. Agglomerated products are desirable for many reasons. To name just a few, agglomerates have little or no dust, flow freely, and have a defined particle shape, high bulk density, and low bulk volume. This article introduces you to mixer agglomeration by explaining how the process works and describing the available equipment.
