In-line particle size measurement in a rotary fluidized bed agglomeration
Parsums patented measuring principle, called spatial filter velocimetry, has until now been content in various publications. Its benefit of particle measurement in process has been approved. Now this also has been investigated in a rotary fluid bed granulation process. Marcel Langner, studying at the University of Applied Sciences Anhalt has now written an article for the journal “Powder Technology” in the field of applied biosciences and process technology. He proves accuracy and practical benefit of the measuring method in a rotary fluid bed granulation process and shows that even larger agglomerates can be detected with a quantity proportion of 1%. Furthermore, he compares the quality of the inline measuring results with those of imaging off-line methods, such as Camsizer. For the measurement inline the Parsum probe IPP70-S and the disperser D12 had been used.
The article with the title “In-line particle size measurement and process influences on rotary fluidized bed agglomeration” will be published on 15th of March 2020, issue 364 of the “Powder Techology”. An abstract is available right here:
