Bulk Flow Analysis

To get rid of chute blockage and conveyor spillage

Most problems with conveyor belts occur at loading and unloading points. In most cases, an inadequate design of the transfer chutes is the main source of these issues.

Our team uses powerful software to simulate bulk material flow. The Discrete Element Method (DEM) we use is the best method to validate transfer chute geometry and identify potential problems before construction.

  • Prevent Chute Plugging
  • Minimize Belt Wear
  • Minimize Chute Surface Wear
  • Mimimize Dust
  • Minimize Spillage
  • Minimize Material Degradation
