CE 210: Flow of Bulk Solids from Silos

Print Ask to this Articlel

Flow of Bulk Solids from Silos

Product Details

Technical Description
This trainer was developed in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Schulze (from Braunschweig/Wolfenbüttel University of Applied Sciences). It permits observation of flow profiles as bulk solids flow out of silos. To that end, two identically shaped silos with transparent front walls and differing hopper wall materials are provided. As well as the influence of the wall material, the influence of the hopper wall angle of inclination on the outflow behaviour can also be investigated. It is possible to verify segregation processes during filling and emptying by means of sampling at the outlet and analysis using a sieve.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
- Influence of wall material and angle of inclination of hopper wall on flow profile (mass/funnel flow) and outflow time
- Segregation processes
- Arching

* Observation of flow profiles
[1] Investigation of the outflow of bulk solids from silos with wedge-shaped discharge hoppers
[2] 2 silos with differing hopper wall materials
[3] Angle of inclination of hopper wall stepwise variable while outlet cross-section remains constant
[4] Front walls of silos made of transparent material
[5] 2 coloured bulk solids with differing particle size ranges to visualise the flow profiles
[6] Sieve to examine the segregation
[7] Stopwatch to determine times taken to flow out
[8] Demonstration of arching by moistening of the bulk solid
[9] Practical verification of the design results obtained with CE 200 with regard to mass flow/funnel flow
