Conveyor Selection for Bulk Solids Processes

By Josh Marion, Jenike & Johanson Inc. |

Use this guide to aid the selection of conveying technologies for applications in powder and bulk solids handling Many sectors of the chemical process industries (CPI) — including chemicals, plastics, batteries, mining, power generation, plastics, food, agriculture, pharmaceuticals and others — handle a wide range of bulk solids and powders in manufacturing. Research has shown that more than 70% of all products contain ingredients that are handled in bulk solid or powder form at some point during the production chain. Each bulk solid tends to have its own unique characteristics, behaviors and requirements for getting it (and keeping it) flowing and moving through solids handling equipment. Solids-handling equipment, such as bins, silos, hoppers, feeders and chutes have their own set of difficulties and challenges for getting material flowing [1–3], and conveyors are no different. There are dozens of different conveying technologies, many of which may be marketed as a “one-size-fits-all” solution for moving bulk solids around. However, there can be significant consequences if you don’t get conveying “right.” Depending on your material, application, and conveying technology, you may experience production bottlenecks,…
