Blending and segregation are two opposite and competing processes in solids handling that ideally fit the expression “two sides of the same coin.” But, if you think about it, coins have three sides and sampling completes the idiomatic expression perfectly. Blending is a necessary and essential process operation widely employed in many industries and materials, from nano-scale powders to...

The earliest application of the fundamental concepts of fluidization dates back to 16th century when a German scientist (Georgius Agricola) described a process to upgrade ores. However, it was not until the 1930s, with the development of the Winkler coal-gasification process, that commercial use of fluidized beds on an industrial scale was recognized. The need for gasoline during the World War II...

Quite often, during the design of conveying systems, not enough attention is paid to the design of the conveying pipeline and its components. This disregard often leads to some major conveying system problems such as low conveying rates, conveying line plugging, excessive wear and tear in the conveying line, high conveying system pressure drop, product breakage, fines and streamer generation and product...
