BSE, bulk solids engineering
BSE makes silo designs for bulk solids on the basis of the characteristics of the product. Our work consists of:
* Measurement of bulk solid properties for various applications.
* Design of silos and transport equipment based on product characteristics.
* Advice concerning bulk solids and flow problems,
Measurement of product properties
BSE has an own laboratory, where relevant properties of the bulk solid, such as internal friction, wall friction, permeability, etc. can be measured. The Jenike shear cell is the most important tester in this respect.
Design of bulk installations
Based on measured properties bulk installations can be designed with greater dependability.
The design of bulk installations is based on product characteristics and applicable standards.
Advice is related to flow problems, arching or bridging in the silo, product degradation, irregular flow, silo quaking or shaking, etc.
