Bulk solids engineering

Consulting company for silo problems

BSE designs reliable installations 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.


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.


BSE has a laboratory with equipment at its disposal to measure relevant properties of bulk solids, such as internal friction, wall friction, permeability, etc. The Jenike shear cell is the most important tester in this respect.
Based on measured properties bulk installations can be designed with greater dependability.
