FEECO Agglomeration Equipment



Agglomeration

Feeco can provide a family of solutions to meet your agglomeration needs. Whether you are looking to eliminate dust, convert a waste to a marketable product, or improve product characteristics, we can design, manufacture, and install agglomeration equipment and systems to create a highly efficient process that produces the product you’re looking for.

What Can Agglomeration do for Your Material?

Agglomeration, or particle size enlargement, offers a variety of benefits. Among them, agglomeration allows you to:

  • Reduce Volume
  • Stabilize Mixtures During Handling
  • Eliminate/Reduce Dust Problems
  • Control Hardness
  • Reduce Packing, Storage and Transport Costs
  • Improve Product Performance
  • Improve Handling

To learn more about how agglomeration can benefit your material, see Why Agglomerate Your Material.

Types of Agglomeration

We offer a variety of equipment for both Non-Pressure (tumble growth) and Pressure agglomeration:

Non-Pressure (Tumble Growth) Agglomeration

Tumble growth agglomeration is the agglomeration of fines without pressure, and typically in the presence of a binder. Since moisture has to be present in the feed material and/or added during the agglomeration process, the resulting agglomerate is relatively soft (green, uncured) and usually requires a secondary process step to dry, cure, or fire the agglomerate and provide finished product strength. The product of non-pressure agglomeration is spherical or spheroidal pellets, or “jagged” pellets, depending upon the equipment used.

For tumble growth agglomeration equipment, we offer:

Pressure Agglomeration

Particle size enlargement using a dry process in which dusts, powders or crystals are formed into shapes. The densification of the product is obtained by mechanical compression through a Sahut-Conreur double roll press. No moisture, or very little moisture, is required in a pressure agglomeration process.For pressure agglomeration equipment, we offer:

Size Reduction Equipment

We also offer a line of size reduction equipment for breaking up oversize pellets, including:

Which Type of Agglomeration is Right for You?

If you have a material problem, but you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got you covered. We offer a unique lab testing facility where we can determine the feasibility of agglomerating of your material, as well as which approach will best suit your material, and what the process will look like to get the product characteristics you’re looking for.

Why Choose FEECO?

When it comes to agglomeration equipment and process solutions, FEECO is the provider of choice. FEECO has been solving material problems and providing high quality, custom agglomeration equipment and systems since 1951.

We also offer a unique lab facility where we can work with you to determine agglomeration feasibility, as well as develop a process that helps you produce agglomerates with the precise characteristics you’re looking for.
