Abstract

The tendency of particulate materials to separate into various zones depending on their various physical characteristics is called segregation. The phenomenon is widely encountered in nearly all materials handling situations and leads, quite often, to significant variations in quality. This paper reviews the mechanisms which contribute to segregation and demonstrates, by means of laboratory scale tests, that the particular segregation pattern likely to be encountered in a given situation is a function of both material and process-related variables.
