Powder & Solids

Dealing with bulk solids — materials than can range from fine powders to coarse particulates or even chunks — raises particular challenges compared to liquids and gases because such solid materials don’t necessarily respond consistently or as expected. Small changes in particle shape, composition, moisture or other parameters can have a big and sometimes surprising impact.
