In-House Test Lab for Bulk Material Handling

Testing Your Bulk Material Handling Engineering Systems & Process

Your material, your process, our facility
Use our in-house testing lab and team of experts before you install a completely new system or enhance your existing bulk material handling engineering equipment. Preliminary materials testing will help ensure the integrity and long-term success of your process.

Our In-House Test Lab for Pneumatic Conveying

Our headquarters in Lino Lakes (Minneapolis), Minnesota, is home to one of the most up-to-date and modern materials testing facilities in the US. In the test lab, we can reliably and accurately determine your system’s rate, air consumption, material flow characteristics, product degradation statistics and more by replicating your field conditions.

After each test, our bulk material handling engineers carefully collect and analyze the data in order to design an optimal system specifically suited to meet your requirements. We will also supply you with a comprehensive test report indicating air usage, system settings, and other applicable information unique to your application. In addition, you may collect and retain the test samples for analysis.

We can perform any of these material tests in our lab for pneumatic conveying:

  • Dense Phase Pressure utilizing a transport vessel or Slow-Flow rotary airlock
  • Dense Phase Vacuum utilizing a surge hopper and vacuum blower
  • Dilute Phase Pressure utilizing a rotary airlock, screw feeder, or eductor
  • Dilute Phase Vacuum utilizing a rotary airlock or screw feeder
  • Pneumatic Blending (dry or wet) utilizing our Model 244 Blender
  • Bulk Bag Unloading
  • Air Activated Gravity Conveyor Metering or Transferring
  • Bulk Densities (loose, packed, or aerated)
  • Sieve Analysis
  • Moisture Content Analysis
