Particulate systems are everywhere; they are responsible for bright red sunsets, the texture of chocolate and the rate of drug delivery in the human body. Particulate processing and size control originated back in prehistoric times where mixtures of pigments were finely pulverized and used in the painting of cavern walls. From those primitive beginnings, the use and processing of particulate matter has...

Plastics are most commonly produced and sold in pellet form due to the superior handling characteristics of pellets in downstream applications. From the moment the polymer is pelletized from its molten state, the pellets or granules undergo a series of handling steps as they move from the producer to the consumer. For instance, post-pelletization steps include: • Hydraulic conveying • Drying...
