A substantial proportion of the problems that prevent industrial processes from achieving acceptable levels of efficiency are directly linked to the bulk characteristics of the powders or granular materials being handled. An early understanding of the tendency of materials to cake in storage, degrade through transfer systems or de-blend when handled through multiple process steps can provide information to evaluate the potential for problems before entering into full scale production commitments.
Through the experience of our team of consultants a range of courses for industry have been developed to provide insight into characterisation techniques by which bulk behaviour can be predicted.
On the one day Segregation, Degradation and caking course you will to discover
Why a well mixed blend becomes a variable one due to separation in handling; (segregation)
Why materials suffer damage during conveying from one part of the process to another; (degradation)
Why free flowing powders can become solid lumps during transport; (caking)
