hopper design for sticky material

Designing a Hopper Material Properties and Size

Material with enough cohesive strength due to stickiness or sharp jagged edges can cause slow movement through a transition and possible bridging at the discharge.This may require a large opening or unique hopper design to allow for flow. Ideal hopper design A properly designed hopper produces uniform material flow to the feeder trough, with

Designing hoppers to optimize material flow : Powder and

The benefits of an ideal hopper design include uniform flow patterns, maximum capacity, optimized feeder size and performance, and reduced potential for material buildup and spillage. Particle size distribution, bulk density, shear properties, and cohesive strength are main material factors that dictate the ideal hopper transition design.

Hopper Design Principles Chemical Engineering Page 1

Jan 01, 2016· δ. φ. Jenike [1] found that the hopper angle required to allow flow along the walls depends on the friction between the powder and the walls, the friction between powder particles, and the geometry of the hopper.Design charts originally developed by Jenike [1] provide allowable hopper angles for mass flow, given values of the wall friction angle and the effective angle of internal friction

Hints and Suggestions for Designing Hoppers to Give

Even if the material does not form a stable arch, it may still form a 'rathole' in a conical hopper, to leave a large proportion of the contents un-discharged. To determine the opening size that will generate reliable flow it is necessary to measure the shear strength of the material in the 'relevant conditions' and apply a design

Ten Steps to an Effective Bin Design AIChE

Nov 25, 2013· of material in the hopper section. Because this design pro-cess is iterative, a reasonable estimate for cylinder height is sufficient at this point. Try to keep the height of a circular or square cylinder between about one and four times the cylinder’s diameter or width. Values outside this range often result in designs that are uneconomical.

Storage Bins and Hoppers for Bulk Materials UniTrak

Oct 25, 2016· Bin and Hopper Design. Proper design of a bin or hopper is essential for promoting good gravity-flow. Hopper walls should be steep enough to overcome the force of friction between the material and the hopper wall. Flow within the bin or hopper can be assisted by the use of flow aids such as a vibrator or agitator. The use of flow aids may be

Designing Hoppers, Bins, and Silos for Reliable Flow AIChE

In bulk solid storage discussions, the terms hopper, bin, and silo are often used interchangeably. Hopper and bin frequently refer to small storage vessels, while silo usually refers to tall vessels that store several tons of material. Examples of hopper, bin, and silo geometries are given in Figure 1. In this article, the term bin is used to
