Figures 6-9, show the relation between the mean particle size and the agglomerate density for different processing conditions.
However, because of the existence of large agglomerates in batch A, it is quite likely that this batch would behave differently during processing than a product consisting of not-agglomerated particles of the same size.
the base silica sand sieve analysis from cores or new sand additions prevails in agglomerate formation;
PP/PANI/MWNT 5), there is no prominent agglomerate phenomenon, and the dispersion of MWNT is far better than that in other composites.
The agglomerate component of Champagne corks is made by bonding together small cork fragments--typically 5mm to 8mm in diameter--using food-grade glue that includes polyurethane.
Two modes of dispersion are identified: the bulk rupture (an abrupt breakage of the agglomerate into multiple large fragments) and erosion (a sequential removal of small fragments from the agglomerate periphery) (figure 2).
the number of particles and agglomerates varies much more than the total surface area of washed molding sand sieve analysis (WMS), unwashed molding sand sieve analysis (UWMS) and base silica sand sieve analysis (CS) of a green sand;
However, agglomerates can form during the melting process.
A steady agglomerate and network build-up takes place as agglomerates coalesce while the shear rate is lowered continuously.
The Solidquid[TM] solid/liquid delivery system offers options to improve process efficiency and operator safety when dealing with materials that agglomerate.
Nanoparticles have a tendency to agglomerate while being dispensed, resulting in an uneven thickness of the coating layer.
By using a unique Schugi Flexomix agglomerator system Hosokawa Micron were able handle the difficult to agglomerate ingredients and to solve the problem of producing two different end products.
