Creeping: an efficient way to determine the anticaking ability of additives for sodium chloride

Author affiliations

Abstract

This article investigates the relationship between additive induced creeping and anticaking activity in sodium chloride. Through a series of creeping experiments and powder flow analysis, we establish a clear correlation between the amount of creeping and the anticaking effect of an additive. Habit modification is found not to be a sufficient condition for an anticaking agent. The correlation is explained by the fact that both creeping and anticaking require blocking of crystal growth.
