We help you to avoid problems with your powder handling equipment like silos, feeders etc. For this, we offer a number of services such as:
  • Silo design for flow (e.g. according to Jenike's approach): The silo geometry (slope of hopper walls, outlet size, wall materials, inserts, feeders, discharge aids) which is necessary to avoid flow problems (arching, piping, irregular flow, flooding, segregation and silo quaking) will be predicted.
  • On-site analysis of existing silos and related equipment.
  • Elaboration of concepts for reconstruction (retrofits) of silos and related equipment (dosage devices, feeders) showing flow problems (flow obstructions, segregation, vibrations, etc.).
  • Comparison of flow properties, e.g. of bulk solid samples with different compositions (e.g. to investigate the influence of flow agents on the flowability and to find the optimal flow agent concentration); evaluation of the influence of temperature or humidity on the flow properties.
  • Measurement fo flow properties for silo design for strength according to actual silo codes (e.g. DIN 1055 part 6).

Further fields of the work of Schwedes + Schulze Schüttguttechnik:
  • Flow of bulk solids in any type of reactor, apparatus or machine (e.g. feeders, chutes, mills, fixed bed reactors).
  • Optimization of bulk solids handling equipment.
  • Development and selection of measuring methods for quality control, product characterization, measuring of stresses in silos.
  • Development of feeders, dosage systems etc. which have to be suited to special boundary conditions (e.g. uniform withdrawal of bulk solid, mixing).
  • Calculation of stresses in silos and feeder loads; development of computer programs suited to special types of feeders to calculate feeder loads and driving torques in dependence on silo geometry and flow properties.
  • Homogenizing and mixing of bulk solids in silos.
  • Segregation-free storage of bulk solids
  • Seminars and courses on bulk solids handling
