Those who deal with biomass know it can be very difficult to handle, but why? Let’s compare biomass to bulk materials/powders for a moment. Both bulk materials and biomass have internal friction, can form piles, are sensitive to pressure, and … Continue reading
I own all eight editions of Perry’s Chemical Engineers’ Handbook. The ninth edition will be issued this year, and Dr. John Carson and I have written the section on bulk solids flow and hopper design. The ninth edition will include our … Continue reading
Our Project Engineer Josh Marion about effective head and why we use it.
As one of the most remarkable structures from medieval era, Leaning Tower of Pisa is worldwide known not only as a symbol of national monument but also as a pleasant engineering mistake. The tower has leaned from the start because … Continue reading
I am old enough to remember the “new car smell” of the interior of a new automobile. Whenever my parents purchased a new vehicle, they seemed excited when inhaling alkanes and residual styrene monomers. I, on the other hand, … Continue reading
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
Elizabeth Bittencourt da Costa, an engineer in our Brazilian office, recently presented to the Centro Universitário da FEI during their engineering week. Here’s the course in her own words: No dia 14 de Outubro realizei uma apresentação na Semana da Engenharia do Centro … Continue reading
John Carson and Thomas Baxter all will be attending the annual AIChE meeting in Salt Lake City Utah next week. Our team will be presenting: Powder Characterization and Trouble-Shooting Methods for Successful Process-Scale up Manufacturing oral solid dosages involves several key powder handling steps, including blending, transfer, storage, … Continue reading
Are you using Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) in your bulk solids handling design or analysis? Take a few minutes and watch Dr. Andrés Orlando talk about the basics of DEM and how it is being used to model bulk material … Continue reading
In our first video blog, Vice President of Technology Tony Royal talks about discrete element modeling (DEM) and the types of projects we have modeled using our proprietary software. He discusses the importance of modeling a piece of equipment or a … Continue reading
