Caking is a natural phenomenon. It could happen to your powder product whether you want it or not. If the caking is a quality problem that is resulting in multiple complaints, here is how you can determine the caking behavior … 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!
Sometimes progress occurs so slowly that it appears that nothing is changing. Looking back over the last two decades, it is clear that the importance of characterizing and using the flow properties of bulk solids in design is becoming mainstream. … Continue reading
