Very seldom is a product of desired size manufactured directly in a process. Size reduction, coupled with screening (classification), is commonly used to achieve desired particle size. In many instances, the final application dictates requirement of small particle size to enhance performance. For example, fine particles enhance dispersion of pharmaceutical ingredients, increase surface coverage of paints...

Question:  Besides rotary, fluidized-bed, and flash dryers, what other types of dryers can remove moisture and other volatile compounds from bulk solids? Answer:  For many applications, an efficient and cost-effective alternative is to dry the bulk solid in a silo equipped with heat exchangers or modified to permit injection of a gas. Compared to other dryers, drying silos have several...

Storing solid materials in hoppers, bins and silos is ubiquitous in the chemical process industries (CPI), as are challenges associated with dispensing them. In many cases, using vessels with steep cones and smooth walls is enough to provide reliable flow. However, it is not always feasible to design and install hoppers with the optimal geometry, and many solids have difficult or variable flow properties...
