Briquetting (agglomerates, briquettes, compacts, ... ), and compaction-granulation (granules) processes are technologies of particle size enlargment using a dry process in which dusts or powders are formed into shapes.
A technical solution
- Obtain products of the same size, volume and weight: an agglomerate/a compact can represent the exact dose required in a process - Obtain a specified and constant product size-range - Reduce the volume of a powder - Stabilize mixtures of powders: during handling and transport, the heterogeneous mixtures of particles lose their uniformity because of the variation in density, shape and size of the particles. The problems of segregation disappear - Improve the flowability of the powders, thus preventing problems of feed, dosage or packaging - Improve the compactability of some powders - Eliminate the problems of dust generation during handling - Control the hardness and strength of products - Control the dispersion rate of granules - Solve the problems of powder caking during storage
A commercial solution - Marketing
- Increase the sales appeal of a product - Facilitate dosage use: an agglomerate can represent the exact dose required in a process for ease of exact dosage
An environmental solution
- Recycle industrial waste - Recycle beneficiated dust in an industrial process - Eliminate pollution problems caused by airborne dust: air and ground pollution
An economical solution
- Replace the wet process of agglomeration involving costly drying and binder addition techniques - Allow more flexibility in the choice of raw materials purchased at the most attractive price (compound fertilizers) - Adapt easily and quickly to a wider range of mixed fertilizer formulas - Granule products that cannot be granulated by means of other techniques (wet process) - Upgrade by-products - Reduce the packing, storage and transport costs thanks to a volume reduction and higher density of the product - Avoid loss of product in dust form
