NOVEL METHOD FOR PRESENTING MASS-FLOW HOPPER GEOMETRY PARAMETERS.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The determination of the mass flow hopper geometry parameters based on the bulk solid flow properties is now well established and documented. However, with the current method of design data presentation the critical hopper geometry cannot easily be related to the experimentally determined flow properties. This paper details a new method developed to overcome this disadvantage by linking the flow properties and the hopper wall slope and outlet dimension design curves with a common independent variable. An example is provided to demonstrate the advantages of this presentation for the evaluation of mass flow hopper geometries.
