The product

The Precipitated Silica marketed by Group Barcelonesa as a flow aid, is carefully designed to prevent compaction problems in various applications. The benefits of using Precipitated Silica are: 

  • Improves the fluidity and clumping properties of substrates that have flow problems and that clump in storage.  
  • Encapsulates the powder particles and absorbs environmental fluids, oils and fats from the surface to prevent clumping.  
  • Allows a uniform flow control throughout the entire production process, thus increasing packaging rates. They are pure, inert, GMO-free and approved for food use.  
  • The high power of absorption and anti-caking is ideal for food mixes, salts, drink mixes, spices, etc.  
  • Reduces obstructions and bonds during production 
  • Prevents packaging of particles and acts as a physical barrier when the mass moves
  • Covers and smooths the edges of bulk powder, reducing friction between particles.
