Size reduction equipment innovations for dry material handling operations
There are numerous industries that depend on size reduction or comminution of bulk solids to improve performance or to meet specifications. There are many types of size-reduction equipment, which are often developed empirically to handle specific bulk materials and then are applied in other settings. Knowing the properties of the material to be processed is essential. Despite the availability of other particle production processes, size reduction remains today one of the workhorses for production of bulk solids with tailored particle properties.
Particle forming / size enlargement equipment innovations for dry material handling operations
Agglomeration or size enlargement processes transform small bulk solids or past materials to materials of larger sizes, with either random or controlled shapes - granules, briquettes, tablets, pellets, bricks, extrudates or compacts. Size enlargement is a process that has been used for centuries and in many ways, it still remains an art rather than an exact science. Perhaps this is due to the unpredictable behavior of bulk solids. Also in this process, determination of the required product properties is of utmost importance. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in size reduction and size enlargement techniques and equipment to assist you when handling dry bulk materials.
