ON THE MACHINE DEPENDENCE OF FLOW PROPERTY MEASUREMENTS ON BULK SOLIDS.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The most widely used machine for measuring the flow properties of bulk solids in Australia is the Jenike Direct Shear Tester while in the U. K. the Walker Annular Shear Cell is used extensively. Comparing the flow property measurements on the same bulk solid using these two machines indicates that the differences in the results obtained may, to some extent, be machine dependent. Two aspects of this machine dependence are illustrated with flow property tests carried out on ordinary portland cement and coal. Care needs to be exercised when carrying out flow property testwork to ensure that the machine dependence is minimised.
