Applications for Freeze Granulation

Typical applications for Freeze Granulation are homogeneous granulation and drying of engineering (advanced, fine, high-performance) ceramic powders; oxides (alumina (Al2O3), zirconia (ZrO2), silica (SiO2)), nitrides (silicon nitride (Si3N4)) and carbides (SiC) and also granulation of powders of metal oxides, plasma spraying, nanomaterials (nanopowders), diamonds (PCD/CBN inserts), LED Lighting, explosives/pyrotechnicals (igniters, delay elements) and drying of pharmaceuticals and drugs, and for drying of biomaterials like proteins, enzymes and fine chemicals.

Powder Compaction of Freeze Granulated Powders

For optimal powder compaction in for ex uniaxial die pressing of metal or ceramic powders, it is important to have homogeneous granules where the binder and fine particles are well distributed in each granule. By using Freeze Granulation you can achieve this.
