Agglomeration of SiC and other particles are studied in a water-based system. From theoretical consideration expressions for Hamaker constants are extracted from the data and further translated to the metallurgical system. In addition a theoretical model which can describe combined agglomeration and break-up is derived. The model is used to reproduce data from the water system and further used to extrapolate into the metallurgical system. The results are applied in a discussion about how stirring affects the different particle sizes during metal treatment.
