Bulk Handling Global - Bulk materials engineering services

Bulk solids and powder characteristics, as well as product strength and pressure limitations have to be understood, before effective silo and hopper design, feeder and conveying equipment design can be undertaken.

We measure the product characteristics and provide unrivalled engineering solutions to ensure your plant and equipment operates at maximum efficiency with our bulk solids testing and engineering design services.

From initial planning to development and implementation, covering – bulk solids and powder flow properties testing, silo and hopper design, and effectively interfacing bulk materials handling feeding and conveying equipment to suit the product flowability characteristics.

Our specialist capabilities are in the handling of cohesive, ideal plastic solids, high moisture (up to 65%), high fat, fibrous and flushing type bulk solids and powders, are unparalleled by any other bulk materials handling company. We effectively tackle the handling and discharge of problematic bulk solids and powders, as well as free flowing products.

Regardless of where you are located, we provide worldwide engineered solutions and designs to you. We carry out:

Bulk solids and powder flow properties testing - On site or in-house

Flow properties and characterization.

Wall friction angles, major principle stress, flowability, internal shear, yield Loci, cohesion, adhesion, angles of response, consolidated bulk density.

Silo critical arching dimensions and bridge diameters.

Porosity, surface area investigations, composition analysis and materials development services.

Bulk storage facilities-

Silo and hopper design, stockpile, bulk storage facility, intermediate bulk container (IBC'S), design and flow problem solving.

Silo and hopper structural design and verification, Determination of wall thicknesses, support legs and platforms. 3D modeling and detail drafting

Blending silos, mixing and proportioning technology.

Treatment and conditioning silos - heating, cooling and silo aeration.
