MATERIALS TESTING SERVICES
Our test facilities allow us to trial new materials under a wide variety of conditions. This enables us to optimise system design, utilising our experience in dense phase, pulse phase, dilute phase and vacuum systems to successfully handle even the most friable and delicate materials.
REASONS FOR TESTING:
We often find that materials, although similar in particle size and bulk density, will have differing conveying properties. We therefore test such materials thoroughly, in order to gain an understanding of what is the most effective and efficient means of handling and transporting the material.
Such variables include:
- Particle size and shape distribution
- Moisture content
- Pipeline length – vertical or horizontal
- Pipe bend radius
Testing of materials will result in correctly determining:
- Pipeline diameter
- Vessel sizing
- Compressor size
- Filter size
- Conveying velocities
