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

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:
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:
- Hammer Mills (chain mills)
- Cage Mills
- Clod Breakers
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.
