eHandbook: Don’t Stumble Over SolidsDownload Now
Powders pose problems. But if you address issues upfront you can sail over them. The keys are understanding that vendors aren't clairvoyant when it comes to your concerns; knowing that the interaction of powder and air cause flooding and flushing problems; and realizing that combustible dust is an accident waiting to happen.
To ensure you don’t stumble over solids, we’ve put together another Chemical Processing eHandbook. It includes insight on:
- Run a Pneumatic Conveyor Test -- Use a vendor’s facility to get information on a number of important parameters
- Prevent Fine Powder Flushing -- Trapped air can cause fine powders to shoot through cracks and crevices. Here’s how to eliminate this bin-afflicting problem.
- Properly Handle Combustible Dusts -- Specialized vacuum cleaning and pneumatic conveying systems can help prevent dust explosions
