Put simply, bulk material handling is an engineering field that focuses on the design of equipment used to handle dry materials. The term “Bulk Materials” usually refers to dry materials which are powdery, granular or lumpy in nature, and are stored in large containers or bags. Bulk material handling is an important process for industries that process bulk materials, including: the food industry, the beverage industry, the pet food industry, animal feed industry, tobacco industry, chemical industry, plastics industry, rubber industry, ceramics industry, paint industry, paper and textiles industry, and more.
When it comes to the handling of bulk materials, there are certain important characteristics that one must consider: particle size, bulk density, moisture content, flowability, angle of repose, abrasiveness and corrosiveness.
Bulk material handling systems usually comprise of Bag Emptying Systems (25kg Bags), Bin Activators, Blenders and Mixers, Bulk Bag Unloaders, Bulk Bag Fillers, Dust Collection Systems, Vibratory Feeders, Screw Feeders, Screw Conveyors, Belt Conveyors, Bucket Elevators, Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveyors, Dilute Phase Pneumatic Conveyors, Silos and tanks, material crushers, and tote IBC Systems.
The purpose of bulk material handling may be to convey materials from one of several locations (silos, hoppers, IBCs, Bulk Bags, etc) to an ultimate destination in the process. Storage, inventory control, and possibly material blending are also often important aspects of bulk material handling systems.
