Bins and feeder units must be designed based on the measured characteristics of the powder or granular bulk solid to be handled. Failure to take these characteristics into account will result in reduced safety and efficiency while increasing waste throughout the process. Attend this session to learn how to step-by-step process for bulk storage system design using the specific flow properties of the stored material and other handling requirements.
Topics covered include:
- Explore requirements that define the design process
- Discuss example flow properties utilized to guide the selection of the silo cylinder, hopper, and feeder equipment
- Utilize a proven, practical step-by-step procedure for designing a bulk storage system fundamentally based upon the measured characteristics of the powder or granular bulk solid
