AJAX Hoppers for Reliable Discharge of Bulk Solids
Throughout industry a prodigious variety of bulk solids are stored in hoppers or silos in quantities ranging from a few kilos to thousands of tonnes. It is an unfortunate fact that many installations are plagued by discharge problems. Common problems include inability to discharge on demand, a significant irretrievable inventory and the products unsuitability for subsequent process or purpose because of difficulties associated with segregation or uncontrollable 'flushing'.
This page links areas of our website that provide useful information relating to hopper design issues and promote good design based on an understanding of the flow behaviour of Bulk Solids.
