Agglomeration Advisor: Agglomeration in detergent production
Columnist William H. Engelleitner discusses the wide range of agglomeration methods used in a single industry: powdered detergent production.
In preparation for the many courses and workshops I have directed, I often searched for one typical example of an industry using the broadest range of agglomeration methods and process equipment. I found the manufacture of powdered laundry and dishwasher detergents to be such an example. This industry continues to apply a growing number of size enlargement methods.
