The Agglomeration Process
Agglomeration is the process to improve the flowing properties of a powder mix, therefore increasing the density of a powder mix and its ability to dissolve in a liquid. This helps reduce the dusting of our powders and delivers a smoother drink.
Benefits of Agglomeration
Corim offers agglomeration right onsite so your powdered mixes are never outsourced and always smooth. At our 6-building campus, the Corim team places a powder mix into our industry leading machines to bind very tiny particles together. No chemicals are used in this process – only heat, water, air and the product.
Step 1: Agglomeration begins by spraying the powdered mix with Binder Droplets.
Step 2: This forms a liquid bridge between the powder particles in the moistening phase.
Step 3: The powder then solidifies and forms bridges between each particle.
Step 4: The agglomeration is completed when the powder participle form a blackberry-like structure – clumped closely together and held tight beside other particles.
