CP Powder eHandbook: Effective Powder Processing

As many chemical processors know, processing powders can be tricky. Powder properties can be affected if the materials are stored for long periods. Powders can be compressed, vibrated, aerated and exposed to moisture. And specific processes like granulation, blending, drying, milling, lubricating and compression put requirements on how powders can be handled. In this Chemical Processing Powder eHandbook, we take a look at how to effectively process powder including:

  • Compression dryers – the case for choosing a solution that produces optimal air quality and low energy consumption
  • GHS – understanding the requirements and what it means to chemicals processors
  • Predicting powder flow behavior
  • Vibratory screen cleaning methods
  • Fine powder flushing - eliminating a common bin-afflicting problem caused by trapped air
  • Tubular Drag Conveying Technology – an alternative to pneumatic conveying
  • Addressing dust hazards – including explosions
