Agglomeration – An agglomeration is one of the four main process groups in mechanical process technology. The word “agglomerate” originates from the Latin (agglomerare) meaning ‘accumulate’. In process technology it describes the enlargement of a particle or more precisely: The shifting of the particle size distribution to a larger size range. In STRIKO process technology the agglomeration is used in the STRIKO demister sector. If drops are too small to be separated an agglomerator, i.e. a demister with higher packing density and a lower wire diameter ensures that the small drops are accumulated and agglomerate to larger drops. In doing so, the so-called flooding point of the demister is exceeded. As a result the larger drops are carried away by the volume flow until they are separated in the next step by a STRIKO demister with a usually lower packing density.
