awdust - Non Free Flowing materials

Materials can be rendered non-free flowing due to a variety of factors, including irregular particle shapes, the presence of fats or oils, static attraction, or moisture absorption. When conveyed, these materials may tend to agglomerate into larger masses that can impede flow and create erratic throughput.
