In today’s competitive environment, just having a standard design for a silo, transfer chute, feeder, or stockpile may not be good enough. In fact, implementing a design that does not carefully consider critical bulk material properties can lead to costs far exceeding the initial capital costs for the equipment.
This is precisely where Jenike & Johanson adds value in your engineering process. Our conceptual and functional engineering designs are developed with thorough consideration of representative powder and bulk solids flow characteristics, and provide the critical information to convey the design intent.
Using our proven bulk material flow theories, cutting-edge analytical models (simulations of material and equipment interactions like discrete element method — DEM — modeling), and decades of experience, we determine the most cost-effective, safe, and practical designs to correct existing material handling problems, as well as to provide reliable equipment designs for new installations.
