establish product type and flow behavior

Classify with Feeder Scout

How do you make someone explain the properties of the bulk material when it is practically not measurable data such as product type and flow behavior? In order to select the right knowledge of a product feeder is indispensable. In addition to matters such as bulk density, particle size, temperature, pressure and dosing are mainly the product type and the flow behavior essential data. The product type and flow behavior are difficult to classify in practice; this are not specify any standards. What calls the n powder, calls the other grain. What is a normal flowing product in the perception of one producer, is the other manufacturer with a very good running product and so we can still mention a few examples. Feeder Scout as a tool for classifying product type and flow behavior The online program Feeder Scout is a simple tool to classify product type and flow behavior and capture. Thus it easier to select the correct feeder. Moreover, it is thus possible to communicate this information transparently with colleagues, suppliers and customers. How Feeder Scout?

Fluidizing restricted flow ability bridging sticky compressing electrostatic adhesive Photos, description and a film make clear what current behavior concerns. This allows you to properly compare and classify the flow behavior of your product. Often your powder is a mix of these categories; it is important to determine the dominant behavior and subordinate acts as additional effects of downgrading.
