Introduction to Powder and Bulk Material Flow (PBE PowderShow)

This fundamentals workshop is for those new to the field of powder and bulk solids handling, or for those that need a refresher in the basic technology of bulk material flow.  This session will help the attendee to understand why powder or material flow problems occur, and what cost-effective steps can be taken to solve the problems.  The discussion focuses on the two types of flow occurring in bins, hoppers, and silos, as well as the basics of material flow testing.  The session is typically a complement to the more advanced session on step-by-step silo and feeder design.
