Ultrasonic atomisation

Freeze Granulation can be made using ultrasonic atomisation of the droplets. The resulting granules have a narrow granule size distribution and the granule size is in general smaller (average 120 micron) compared to a regular spray nozzle. The granulation speed is also slow with about 0.3 to 0.5 litre/h. 

 

 

 

Abrasive granulation

Freeze Granulation is today beeing used for commercial mixing, granulation and drying of different abrasive products. The resulting products have a homogeneous distribution of all active material, like superabrasive particles, resulting in improved milling performance and long tool life.

Please contact us and we will further discuss the opportunities with Freeze Granulation on your powder system and read more on technology and we propose a Granulation Test of your powder system.

LEAN Granulation

Freeze Granulation for LEAN Granulation of your powders and chemicals for optimal homogeneity, improved properties and it saves time and money in lab and production.

How to avoid doughnut or donut shaped granules?

By using Freeze Granulation – Spray Freeze Drying – you will be able to avoid donut-shaped granules.

Please contact us and we will further discuss the opportunities with Freeze Granulation on your powder system and read more on technology and we propose a Granulation Test of your powder system.

Granule shape, size and density

Freeze Granulation provides spherical free-flowing dust-free granules without cavities in the size range of 20-500 micron. The solids content of the suspension (slip) and the processing parameters (pump speed and airflow) control the granule density and size.

Granule homogeneity

Migration and segregation of the constituents that is common in other granulating processes such as spray drying is avoided in Freeze Granulation. By instant freezing of small droplets critical ice crystal growth is avoided. The freeze drying where the liquid medium is sublimated ensures homogeneity preservation, limited oxidation and soft bonds within the granules. This provides the best possible condition for any subsequent processing such as easy pressing to homogenous compacts, easy re-dispersing in a liquid, sintering of catalytic particles, dosage processes etc.

Thermal spraying

Homogeneous thermal spray powders, for forming thermal spray coatings, can be made by Freeze Granulation. The homogeneity of the spray powders is very important, not only for composite spray powders and by using FG you will keep the homogeneity throughout the process.
