Coloured Gum - Free Flowing Materials

Free flowing materials, such as pastilles, powders, pellets, pills, granules and flakes, can sometimes present challenges in dry bulk solids conveying. Some of these materials, such as light bulk density fine powders, can be extremely free flowing when aerated and may tend to fluidize when conveyed. In these types of material applications, equipment choice is critical, together with precise integration to upstream and downstream equipment, to achieve consistent throughput.
