Silo design for flow: Determination of the silo geometry (slope of hopper walls, outlet size, wall materials, inserts, feeders, discharge aids) which will avoid flow problems like arching, piping, irregular flow, flooding, segregation, or product degradation.
On-site analysis of existing silos and related equipment, e.g., in case of problems with segregation or poor flow, and elaboration of concepts for reconstruction (retrofits) or optimization.
Development and optimization of feeders, dosing and conveying equipment, etc. which have to be suited to special boundary conditions (e.g. uniform withdrawal and feeding of bulk solid, mixing).
