Any time you’re handling powder, dust, or granulate, you may have a serious problem on your hands. Why are bulk solids so problematic? Handling just one may not be an issue, but as you add a second, third, or even fourth to the mix, the problems begin to multiply because the ideal particle just doesn’t exist.
The issue at hand is that many particles vary in size and surface characteristics, and that can make it tough to predict filling behaviors. Precise characterization is an absolute must because getting it wrong leads to a disruption in the process flow. Looping in your testing and development center may help you know more about what you’re dealing with and how to prevent problems.
The Next Step
Not only does a proper understanding help to prevent any disruptions, but it can also create less wear and tear on the equipment.
