and Development.

With satisfied customers for more than ten years, we have the global footprint
and network to deliver solutions to your needs.

We take immense pride in our fully dedicated Research and Development team. Our team consists of individuals with Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry, who are passionate about their field of agglomeration.

At our state-of-the-art laboratory, we have spared no expense in equipping it with cutting-edge tools and testing equipment, enabling us to conduct a wide range of tests, from lab scale to pilot scale.  

Our team can tackle even the most complex agglomeration challenges, providing tailored solutions that meet your specific needs and industry requirements. Innovation and excellence drive our pursuit of progress, and we are committed to delivering unparalleled results that set new standards in agglomeration technology.

Here is some of the work we do behind the scenes. 


Full chemical and physical analysis of samples are required to develop a suitable binder. Picko diligently analyses materials and we do an extensive range of analysis in our laboratory – both physical and chemical.

Samples are also sent to independent laboratories for XRD and XRF analysis to have a complete chemical perspective on what we work with. 

Optimum Compaction and Moisture Test Work.  

Before we begin with any binder research, we do in-house developed compaction and moisture test work. Without the moisture and compaction qualities optimised, the performance and strength of your product is compromised. 

Binder of Choice.  

With optimal moisture and compaction determined, the binder test work begins. Gathering information from the chemical and physical analysis, we can narrow down the binders that can be tested on the samples.

There’s a vast range of binders available. The binders that performed the best are then further developed using the same procedure until optimal performance have been reached. Here the ratios of the various materials from the client are optimised to maximise strength, water resistance and high temperature strengths.  

Pilot Plant Studies.

After initial laboratory test work we confirm our LAB results on a small scale pilot plant, which represents similar conditions as a full-scale high-output production plant.

It gives the true scope of what happens in full-scale plant conditions and is crucial to determine exactly what equipment is needed for a successful agglomeration process.
