Granulation: A Solution for Polymer Raw Materials
If you have ever worked with solid powdered polymer materials you understand that proper flowability and mixing is critical to creating a homogeneous product. Compaction granulation is an important tool to make sure your raw material ingredients behave optimally. Often time suboptimal particle size and density will impact flow rates or cause clumping and caking. Compaction granulation helps ensure that your materials fall into the correct size/density ranges to maximize how the material flows in the manufacturing process.
Another challenge with preparing materials for polymer mixing is that they can be a combustible dust hazard. This means compaction granulation must be conducted with specialized equipment and facilities to ensure proper safety.
At Stellar Manufacturing, we specialize in working with polymer raw materials and preparing them for manufacturing. We have dedicated equipment and suites for handling combustible dust hazard products. Stellar also has a variety of support services that compliment granulation such as blending, mixing and filling.
