How does Agglomeration work?
The physics behind agglomeration is based on a three-phase system consisting of the dry feed material, air and water. The predominant forces in this system are capillary forces. Binding agents have to be used as additives, as in most cases, water alone does not generate sufficient binding forces between the particles. There are various organic and inorganic additives available on the market for producing both green and dried pellet qualities that match the given requirements.
The Pelletzing Disc
Agglomeration itself takes place in the pelletizing disc. There are multiple process parameters that influence the disc product. In order of importance, these include disc inclination, disc speed, wall height, position of the water nozzles and position of the feed to the disc. Producing pellets that fall within specifications can become a challenge that calls for experienced operators who know how the different parameters can influence the process.
