By understanding the mechanisms behind caking, identifying key process control variables and product specifications, and initiating a program where the gain in cohesive strength of a material over time can be predicted by obtaining small samples, caking problems can be successfully remedied.
Caking is a complex phenomenon that can be a significant source of problems. While there are solutions, they are very specific to the root cause involved, hence the need for a quantifiable approach informed by scientific knowledge of the characteristics of the material involved and the environment.
