Pelletising and Sintering

Pelletizing of raw material by combining agglomeration with thermal energy is increasingly being used as a method of value adding. Pelletizing is typically used in the iron ore industry to convert raw ore into pellets with characteristics appropriate for use in a blast furnace. It is also popular in the chemical and food industries and in the animal feed industry.


Moisture is particularly important in the formation of the raw pellet where it is critical in relation to the size and strength.


Similarly moisture plays a very important role in sintering
