CE 255: Rolling Agglomeration

Rolling Agglomeration

Rolling Agglomeration Rolling Agglomeration

Product Details

Technical Description
The terms agglomeration, granulation and pelletisation designate the process of particle size enlargement of solids. This trainer was developed in cooperation with the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Krefeld. A powder (fine material) is continuously fed onto an inclined, rotating dish granulator. A pump delivers granulating liquid to a two-component nozzle. The liquid is atomised over the powder by compressed air. Starting from a small number of moistened particles, a rolling motion produces growing numbers of balls (agglomerates). The fine material in the moved layer tends to remain close to the bottom. It is lifted higher than the forming agglomerates by the rotary motion of the dish. The ball-shaped agglomerates roll along the surface of the layer. When they have attained a certain size, they drop off the rim of the disc. The agglomerates are collected in a tank. Two further tanks are provided for the solid material (for which powdered limestone is recommended) and the granulating liquid (sugar powder diluted in water). The mass flow of solid feed material, the flow rate of the liquid, the speed and the angle of inclination of the disc are adjustable. The compressive strength of the resultant agglomerates can be measured using a laboratory device or with accessory unit CE 255.01. To determine these and other key properties of the agglomerates, a balance and drying chamber are also recommended.
The well-structured instructional material sets out the fundamentals and provides a step-by-step guide through the experiments.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
- Learning the basic principle and method of operation of an agglomeration unit
- Agglomerate size and strength dependent on
  + mass flow of solid feed material
  + flow rate of liquid
  + ratio of solid to liquid
  + dish rotation speed
  + angle of inclination of dish
  + position of solid and liquid feed
  + selected solid
  + selected granulating liquid

* Rolling agglomeration with a dish granulator
* Strength testing of agglomerates to assess the process
* Practical experiments on a laboratory scale
