1980 Shirley TVA 4213924 Granulation process water sprayer

An improved process for the granulation or coating of hygroscopic or nonhygroscopic materials where melt is sprayed onto cascading granules of common or uncommon substrate in an enclosed vessel, and where the heat given off by solidification of the melt is absorbed by evaporation of water. The water is atomized into the granulator as an extremely fine mist on granules or granulator internals. An equation is developed which mathematically represents the thermodynamics of the process and specific values are presented for variables when granulating sulfur or urea.
