High-Purity Free-Flowing Chemical Salts
Our particle-size modification technologies and special packaging keep chemical salts free-flowing while meeting our customer’s specifications.
Contact our team of experts for a solution to your caking issues.
Caking, or time-induced consolidation, is the agglomeration of free-flowing particles into a large singular mass. These masses are difficult to discharge from the packaging, often requiring a “brute force” approach from operators, which may result in unproductive manufacturing time and increased risk of injury.
No anti-caking agents: Jost Chemical has addressed caking issues without incorporating anti-caking agents, which create adulterated products that cannot be labeled as USP, EP, etc.
Packaging: Utilizing our expert knowledge of product chemistry and climate controlled packaging suites, Jost Chemical prevents temperature gradients during packaging.
Particle sizing: Jost Chemical has a number of particle size modification technologies that keep materials free flowing. Jost Chemical’s technology can balance the need for free-flowing material with the need for a specific material performance such as dissolution rate.
Timing: In particularly difficult instances where material is prone to caking, such as a free-flowing, finely milled product, Jost Chemical can employ special packaging procedures and production schedules so the product is manufactured, shipped, and delivered before excessive caking occurs.
