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
