Process plants continually search for ways to improve quality while decreasing costs and labor. For powder processing facilities, uniaxial testing is a new option. The …
Tips for tracking external causes of variable feeder performance
Powder processing is widely recognized as being challenging, with unit operations often exhibiting lower reliability and greater variability than those only involving liquids and gases.
A common misconception is powder behavior can be described by just understanding its flowability and that flowability is a discrete property.
Introducing a compressed gas into a bulk powder via a porous media allows the powder “to behave like a liquid,” making for ease of movement.
