Results of studies on agglomeration of powder material in drum granulators at drop-wise wetting of a bed with constant flow rate of supplied liquid are presented. The effect of process and equipment parameters, including drum diameter D, drum filling (p, rotational speed of the drum n, on granulation kinetics was determined. The effect of these parameters on mean diameter of granulated material d, and variability defined as the ratio of standard deviation of particle size distribution to the mean diameter (s/d) was discussed.
