• Agglomeration is the process of combing of finely dispersed particles into larger particles.
  • Agglomeration is caused by a rearrangement of surface forces resulting from a change of environment.

  • For powders and bulk solids, agglomeration may be undesirable as it can lead to bridging, caking, or lumping.
  • Agglomeration, using a controlled enlargement of particles can help improve powder properties and obtain high-quality products.
