Ir. Gelmer Bouwman (Kreber B.V.), presented some of the results of our R&D in Prilling Technology on the NL GUTS meeting held 12 December 2017.


On invitation of NL GUTS our colleague Ir. Gelmer Bouwman presented the results of one of our research topics in optimizing Prilling Technology. Prilling is the process of making small spherical beads from a melt, which yields a free flowing product with low dust and enhanced abrasive properties. Although prilling is a well-known proven technology, there is still room for R&D to further optimize the technology.

The Research initiated an improved design of our Prilling equipment resulting in enhanced (self) control and a narrower size distribution of the prills.

Kreber would like to thank NL-GUTS for the opportunity and the interactive discussions.
