ABSTRACT
Polish wheat cultivar Sakwa was used in compression experiments. Ground wheat samples were compacted applying compression chambers of different diameter, at pressure ranging from 50 to 170 MPa. The agglomerates obtained in the experiments were subjected to the quality assessment. Density and mechanical resistance of the agglomerates was determined for different compression conditions, i.e. sample mass, die diameter, and pressure applied.
