It’s that time again – a new year is upon us providing a fresh start. Our bellies are full of treats and our minds have had time to rest. We reflect on all that was accomplished in 2016 and plan … Continue reading
Fixed bed catalytic reactors, in which a gaseous reactant stream passes through a catalyst bed, is frequently used for synthesis, combustion, and effluent treatment. Radial flow reactors are preferred when a low pressure drop is desirable. Fixed bed reactors can … Continue reading
If you didn’t make it to the 2016 Powder Show you can catch up with our presentation at the center stage.
Your furnace feed bin maybe one of the most overlooked pieces of equipment in your glass plant! The bin serves as the main entrance to the value-added portions of your process, and is vital for continuous production and plant operation. … Continue reading
In my last post, I presented you with some basic information on mechanical flow aids along with recommendations on when and where they should be used. As the third entry in my series, this post will discuss the capabilities and limitations … Continue reading
It is not hard to imagine that early in our evolution the first people to store powder or ground material in a container very quickly found themselves hitting the container to get the stuff out. This was usually caused by … Continue reading
Clients in industries ranging from cement to pharmaceuticals often ask us: why is my powder flowing like a liquid? This liquid like behavior can be observed in processes across a variety of industries, including: loading finished cement onto a barge; … Continue reading
It’s been over fifty years since Andrew Jenike published Bulletin 123, which summarized how he used a direct shear cell tester to measure the flow properties of powders and then used the results to design reliable hoppers, bins, and silos. … Continue reading
Have you ever wondered how the data from your material testing report is being used? Take a few minutes and find out how the design of your hopper is informed by the testing of your materials in our labs!
