In the processing environment, powders often appear to exhibit variable flow behavior, which can be the cause of significant inefficiency in the form of unplanned shut downs or compromised product quality. However, the reality is that powder flow properties are influenced by a diverse array of parameters from air and moisture content to particle size, shape and surface charge.  Figure 1. The new...

For most solids-processing operations in the chemical process industries (CPI), particle-size reduction and screening (classification) to achieve the desired particle-size are required, since processes rarely produce the desired size directly. When designing processes, selecting equipment and looking for ways to increase efficiency, CPI engineers must understand the size-reduction behavior of the solid...

Blending and segregation are two opposite and competing processes in solids handling that ideally fit the expression “two sides of the same coin.” But, if you think about it, coins have three sides and sampling completes the idiomatic expression perfectly. Blending is a necessary and essential process operation widely employed in many industries and materials, from nano-scale powders to...
