How does sticking and adhesion occur?

Sticking and adhesion occurs when hygroscopic products contain an excessive amount of moisture. Examples of hygroscopic products are powders, candy and table salt. This is, for example, why people put rice grains in salt jars: to prevent sticking and adhesion. Sticking and adhesion can create obstacles in the processing and it of these products. Quality loss during the production process is also a known problem with moist powders. These problems can lead to higher production costs, more downtime, lower quality and hygiene problems. 

How can sticking and adhesion be prevented?

To avoid the problems caused by sticking and adhesion, hygroscopic products must be stored and processed under lower humidity conditions. Drying of production lines ensures good and fast throughput, high quality, less residual material, less cleaning and a lower risk of bacterial growth and mold formation.
