Agglomeration Processes: Phenomena, Technologies, Equipment by Wolfgang Pietsch

By Wolfgang Pietsch

Agglomeration is fundamental to the procedures of amendment of powders, construction of composites and production of latest fabrics that are required in prescription drugs, meals, chemical compounds, fertilizers and agrochemicals, minerals, ceramics, metallurgy and all fabric generating industries. The binding mechanisms and the particle habit in addition to the features of the tactics and the ensuing agglomerates are an analogous whether or not they are occuring within the 'ultra-clean' pharmaceutical or foodstuff industries or in 'dirty' minerals or waste processing plants.

The booklet introduces the interdisciplinary method of the advance of recent strategies and the answer of difficulties. it's a whole and up to date useful consultant describing some of the agglomeration phenomena and business ideas for dimension growth. as well as introducing the homes of agglomerates and the features of different equipment, descriptions of the equipment and discussions of particular apparatus good points are the most topics.

The certain review of the topic relies at the authors adventure as scholar, researcher, instructor, developer, dressmaker, seller, and consumer in addition to professional and advisor within the box of agglomeration, its applied sciences and items, and is complemented through the information of affiliates who're energetic in particular parts and data from proprietors. it truly is meant for everyone operating in industries that technique and deal with particulate solids because it goals to assist comprehend and regulate undesirable agglomeration in addition to use, increase, and strengthen equipment for the worthy measurement expansion through agglomeration.

Possessing or “full of” pores. , by, for example, aging, drying, heating, sintering, etc. ) Also Pozzolana. Finely divided siliceous or siliceous and aluminous material that reacts chemically with slaked lime at ordinary temperature and in the presence of moisture to form a strong, slow hardening cement. Having the properties of pozzolan. Particles of dry matter typically with a maximum dimension of less than approx.

While, in some cases, binders may be valuable ingredients of the final product or disappear during post-treatment, lubricants are almost always contaminants. For this reason and to keep costs down, the most acceptable lubricants are those that are effective in very small amounts. In former times lubricants were mixed into the formulation prior to, for example, tabletting, even if the lubricant was only meant to reduce the friction between the solids and the tooling. 3). 5. I The Development of Strength of Agglomerates With the growing importance of size enlargement by agglomeration for the manufacturing of engineered products (see also Chapter 12), many other additives are used as “functional” components.

3). They reduce the coefficient of friction between the particles of a bulk mass and, therefore, result in a somewhat higher agglomerate density or lower porosity, E . 1) additional adhesion sites (characterized by the coordination number, k ) are activated by which increased agglomerate strength is expected. Tab. 3 Examples of some typical liquid and solid lubricants. g. Magnesium Stearate) Talc Etylene Glycol Oils Silicones Graphite Paraffin Stearic Acid Waxes In pressure agglomeration, lubricants also reduce the coefficient of friction between the material to be compacted and the tooling.
