Can you go with the Flow? Solids Flowmeters for Industrial Applications

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

Bulk Materials Storage Design: Considerations for the Design of Materials Handling Storage Plants

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

Jenike & Johanson: Eric Maynard discusses how to use material testing data

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.
