Knowing your product’s properties is key to running an effective operation. Product characteristics can be used to guide equipment design, conveyance methods, and even the best processes for your operation. Benefits include:
- Eliminate clumping, bridging and ratholing
- Control or prevent segregation
- Maintain consistent product
- Optimize flow and throughput
- Protect product and prevent loss to moisture or other factors
To deliver our product analysis services, Jim Robbins & Associates partners with Solids Handling Technologies, a specialized firm with over 35 years of experience in product testing and analysis. With SH Tech’s expertise and Jim Robbins’ knowledge of bulk solids handling, we can deliver customized tests and precise data to guide your operation.
We can perform comprehensive sample analysis or custom testing for the specific characteristics you have in mind. We are capable of creating a profile of your product that contains all data you’ll need for future process design.
Bulk Density Testing
Bulk density influences product flow and ratholding, and depends in large part on consolidation pressure. We can evaluate consolidation and other properties to give you precise, accurate bulk density data.
Your product’s flow characteristics determine what equipment you should use in the first place, as well as how efficiently your process moves through that equipment. We offer analysis for chute angles, pneumatic conveyance, wall friction and more.
We can also determine your product’s limiting discharge rate based on its permeability, or get you the data you need for air injection processes.
Explosion data is crucial to safety, performance, and protecting your investment. We can give a complete profile of your product’s explosibility, including parameters for safe operation of a process.
Particle Size Distribution
We use precision sieve analysis to determine particle size distribution. We can also test for product segregation, fluidization, or potential segregation.
