Most of the articles published are in Dutch. Two of them were translated:

Silo design

Avoiding flow problems through adequate design.
To avoid problems in silos concerning flow, product ageing or decay, silo design is necessary. The design of a silo is based on the most economical case: gravity flow. Wall friction, internal friction and bridging properties determine the applicable hopper angle and opening diameter. In some cases through the design procedure it is found that a 'simple' silo is not possible. This however saves a lot of work and costs.


Screw feeder design
    Proper feeding through well designed pitch increase Screw feeder design
Proper feeding through well designed pitch increase
In solids handling processes screws are often used to feed powders from silos. This has a number of advantages: avoiding contamination, pollution and dusting; achieving proper feed rates; better flow. However, if a screw feeder is not designed properly, core flow, bridging, flooding or excessive wear can occur. A proper design prevents these problems.
