The velocity of material vertically entering the chute was estimated at 15 to 34 m/s depending on the fill height of the silo. A three-stage approach was taken. First the existing situation with the highest velocity was modelled with DEM (Discrete Element Simulations), and the results of the wear profile on the existing chute were compared with practice. Secondly, three configurations were designed and the performance of these configurations in terms of wear volume were tested by simulation. Thirdly, and lastly, the performance of the configuration in terms of ensuring material flow through the chutes for a cohesive coal was evaluated. Based on the results of the simulation, two chute designs showed an improved performance where less wear was observed while securing flow through the chute.

Lincoln (NE), United States – Operations processing powders, fine-grained, or coarse-grained bulk solids can add the BinMaster VR-90 vibrating rod or VF-95 vibrating fork to their arsenal of point level sensors for hazardous locations. The VR-90 and VF-95 are approved to ATEX, FM, CSA, and IEC standards for use in hazardous locations. Both the vibrating rod and fork are available with either an electropolished or precision-casted stainless-steel housing suitable for food or chemical processing environments.

Newcastle (QLD), Australia – During 9-11 July 2019, the Australian Society for Bulk Solids Handling (ASBSH) will hold its 13th International Conference on Bulk Materials Handling (ICBMH) in Surfers Paradise Gold Cost (QLD), Australia. Authors are invited to submit the abstracts of proposed papers until 30 November 2018.
Chatham Maritime, United Kingdom – In January 2013 experts came together at an event hosted by The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology, with the objective of trying to identify best practice of fire prevention and management for biomass storage systems. Research has progressed further, and more practical experience gained, so the organisers have decided to hold a third meeting to see how things have developed.
In the area of biomass handling, we offer high consistency of dosing for safe and precise feeding of the right amount of energy to the thermal process. With this, Geroldinger, with its system, has mastered all kinds of fuels with cellulose content from miscanthus and nutshells to wood chips, wood dust and shavings. Safe storage, discharge and constant feeding to the boiler result in fully automatic and extremely economical operation.

A.B.S. flex containers can be found, where bulk goods have to be stored quickly, efficiently and reliably. This includes the plastics and recycling industry, in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry as well as in the food, feed and confectionery sectors. As an international manufacturer, A.B.S. has installed over 50,000 silos across the world.

Optimisation, innovation and integrity define Rula Bulk Materials Handling‘s entrepreneurial approach. Locally owned since 2001, we have become a major player in the bulk materials handling sector, providing both pneumatic and mechanical solutions.
EP2M2C: an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach
Our focus lies in the energy, cement, mining and alumina sectors, where we supply turnkey conveying and storage plants from concept design to commissioning. We have integrated the supply chain to deliver a complete package to our clients. We describe this as EP2M2C – Engineering, Procurement, Manufacture & Management, Construction and Commissioning. We cover all disciplines in-house, with specialists in the following fields ensuring project-wide continuity: Mechanical, Civil, Structural, Electrical, C&I and Earthworks.
Storages which are set up in tight spaces yet need to handle high capacities are increasingly conceived as circular storage. SCHADE has helped drive forward developments in this very field and can demonstrate excellent references worldwide.
Shiploading Systems That Meet Stringent Requirements
Quickborn, Germany, July 2016 – The Quickborn-based company SMB International has commissioned two complex shiploading systems In the Algerian port city of Oran. With the development of a wholly interconnected system, the company, which has international experience, has set new benchmarks in terms of the flexibility and automation of ship loaders.
