By M. Morrissey –Solids flowmeters are an interesting solution to indicate flow rates in pipes and chutes. “Interesting” because they are only moderately accurate, costly, require a lot of tuning after installation and are usually only as good as the whole process around them. Nevertheless, the technology exists – because there isn’t anything else that can do the job. Continue reading Can you go with the Flow? Solids Flowmeters for Industrial Applications
By S. Roos – Bulk material storage is either used for buffering between different handling/processing steps (e.g. ahead of the washing plant in mines) or as an “equalizer” in batch-wise working processes. Associated problems and counter measures are described hereafter. Continue reading Bulk Materials Storage Design: Considerations for the Design of Materials Handling Storage Plants
Eric Maynard, Director of Education at Jenike & Johanson, quickly explains how our material testing reports are used to engineer the proper angles in a hopper to produce mass flow of a given material.
