Pilot Scale


Pilot Scale

Are you developing a unique process or design for a challenging bulk solid?  Jenike & Johanson has the experienced staff, knowledge, and specialized tools to perform both physical and real-world analytical modeling studies.  We understand the importance of making sure the models are accurately scaled geometrically and with respect to bulk material flow properties.

Our capabilities include:

  • Proof-of-concept prototyping, pilot-scale and unique solids process modeling
  • Powder fluidization and pneumatic conveying tests
  • Silo quaking, thumping, vibration testing, and analysis
  • Flow visualization experiments
  • High accuracy micro-feeding

Project Examples

  • Feeding a sticky, cohesive powder at extremely low rates (1 g/minute)
  • Micro-dosing a seasoning mixture uniformly
  • Aligning pharmaceutical tablets in a high speed filler
  • Filling of ammunition cartridges at high speeds
  • Feeding a reactor with biomass with continuous, high accuracy control
  • Operating powder fluidization model at high temperature
  • Testing of large particle bulk solids (e.g., coal and switch grass)
