Characterisation is a fundamental element in delivering successful bulk materials handling. Avoid costly mistakes in purchasing, process downtime, retrofits to equipment, wear, breakdown and blockages by knowing the material you are dealing with thoroughly.

Get a comprehensive overview of the measurable properties of powders and bulk solids, and how these can be used to prevent such problems at your plant.

Learning from a range of case studies, you will be able to demonstrate the value of knowing your enemy when it comes to dealing with a bulk solid – and the consequences for project failure, increased costs and wasted resources.
