Certain bulk materials that are “sticky,” “muddy,” viscous, or coagulant, may be referred to as “agglomerable.” Agglomerable materials, such as synthetic gypsum, are may be difficult to feed and reliably meter during the manufacture of Portland cement and wallboard.

SCB can provide a handling system for agglomerable materials which can reliably and uniformly feed and meter from a hopper. The handling system is well-suited for the consistent dispensing of synthetic gypsum in the manufacture of Portland cement.
