This paper presents the results of research on improving the effectiveness of the agglomeration process. Improving effectiveness was obtained as a result of the application of the convergent sleeve. The sleeve is mounted before the multi-holes die in the dry ice agglomeration machine. The empirical part of the paper presents the results of research on which FEM model was based. The numerical part of research presents the FEM model of the agglomeration process. The FEM model with a known uncertainty level was used to determine the influence of geometrical parameters of the sleeve on the limit value of the agglomeration forces. The model will be one of the starting points for the design and construction of the machine for the compaction and granulation of dry ice.
Key words: dry ice / convergent sleeve / compaction / densification
