Dry, granular solids can be conveyed in a number of ways. Two common devices for transporting granular solids are the angular-pitch vibrating conveyor and the horizontal differential-motion conveyor. The variability in the design and performance between the two types stems from the differences in the kind of motion required to move the mass in one direction. The most significant difference between the two...

In the processing environment, powders often appear to exhibit variable flow behavior, which can be the cause of significant inefficiency in the form of unplanned shut downs or compromised product quality. However, the reality is that powder flow properties are influenced by a diverse array of parameters from air and moisture content to particle size, shape and surface charge.  Figure 1. The new...

For most solids-processing operations in the chemical process industries (CPI), particle-size reduction and screening (classification) to achieve the desired particle-size are required, since processes rarely produce the desired size directly. When designing processes, selecting equipment and looking for ways to increase efficiency, CPI engineers must understand the size-reduction behavior of the solid...
