Material testing is a crucial component of any dry process or bulk solids handling operation. It's always important to get accurate measurements, but sometimes doing things "by the book" can be less effective than using "street smarts."
Attend this session to see demonstrations of rule-of-thumb tests that can be performed on a sample of your material, without the need for expensive instruments.
You'l learn how these simple tests can determine basic properties for storage, flow, and conveying of powders and bulk solids.
