  • Patent number: 5739097
    Abstract: In the production of granules containing anionic surfactants and having a bulk density above 450 g/l by granulation of a surfactant preparation containing a non-surface-active liquid component, the water demand and hence the energy demand for evaporating the water can be reduced if the anionic surfactant in its acid form or a mixture containing one or more anionic surfactants in their acid form and an aqueous alkaline solution are separately treated with a gaseous medium, subsequently sprayed in substantially stoichiometric quantities into the granulation and drying zone either separately or together under a high propellant gas pressure and then granulated and, at the same time, dried, optionally with addition of one or more inorganic or organic solids.

  • Patent number: 5399287
    Abstract: The object of the invention was to provide a granulation process for the production of heavy zeolite granules in which the quantity of granulation liquid used would be a less critical factor, so that (co)polymeric carboxylates could be used as a dissolved constituent of the granulation liquid. This object is achieved by using a mixture of water, surfactants and (co)polymeric carboxylates as the granulation liquid, the content of surfactants in the granulation liquid being at least 10% by weight.

  • Patent number: 5318733
    Abstract: A process for the production of compacted granules for use in a detergent composition by providing a homogeneous, solid, free-flowing premix to which a plasticizer or lubricant is added, and extruding the mixture through a perforated die under a pressure of from about 25 bar to about 200 bar to form strands of the mixture.
