Co-Author: Jesús Chávez Sagarnaga My definition of “hopper” is a sloped wall converging structure suspended along its top edge from the vertical wall portion of the bin or silo. Hoppers can be conical, wedge, pyramidal or a combination of these shapes. … Continue reading
Pre-feasibility study, feasibility study, front-end-loading (FEL 1 and 2), whatever you might call the upfront work in deciding whether or not a bulk solids handling project should go through, we can help. A feasibility study is the analysis of how … Continue reading
Changing the oil in my car may be the least favorite chore that I have to do on a regular basis. Taking 30 minutes to sit in a garage while the oil is drained and replaced is a huge hassle, … 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
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!
Standpipes are included as a feature in most power plant solid fuel feed systems, and yet their function is often not well understood. We have encountered many situations where the original design basis was sufficient, but a change in fuel … Continue reading
