test lab

We have tested over 800 materials in our in-house, state-of-the-art test lab outfitted with full-size equipment and systems. We can replicate your exact field conditions and current bulk material handling process. We can reliably and accurately determine your system’s rate, air consumption, material flow characteristics, product degradation statistics, and more.

We can perform the following material tests in our lab:

  • 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 full-size blender
  • Pneumatic blending (dry or wet) utilizing our mini-blender for smaller applications
  • Bulk bag unloading
  • Air activated gravity conveyor metering or transferring
  • Bulk densities (loose, packed, or aerated)
  • Sieve analysis
  • Moisture content analysis

Common Materials Handled

Our team takes the time to understand the following material characteristics – bulk density, particle shape & size, distribution, moisture content, hygroscopicity, temperature, abrasiveness, cohesiveness and friability.

Complete Materials Handled Index

We have conveyed or tested all the materials in this index. We maintain an extensive material database that serves as a helpful resource for our team and clients. Whether you are seeking trusted data for a legacy powder or insight into a material you plan to introduce to the marketplace, we can help. With that said, if you don’t see your material on the list, we would love an opportunity to run it through our R & D program.
