Supported Industrial Applications
Particle Analytics solutions have been tailored for organisations already using Discrete Element Method (DEM) software to design, build and operate material handling and processing plant and machinery.
The range of supported industrial applications is extensive but broadly falls into 6 categories – mixing, storage, transport, milling, excavation and soil movement.
The mixing of bulk solids is a key part of process manufacturing. Particle Analytics solutions enable companies to analyse the behaviour of the material as a continuum rather than a series of discrete data sets.
Interactions between different materials and between the materials and equipment can be analysed in order to determine the optimum mixing efficiency and minimise dead zones.y
The storage and discharge of bulk solids from infrastructure such as silos and hoppers can be critical for the whole manufacturing process and determine the quality of the final product.
Particle Analytics’ approach provides meaningful and easily understandable information to analyse problems, such as segregation, related to storage and discharge processes.
Transfer chutes are one of the primary transport methods for bulk solids. Particle Analytics solutions provide advanced analytics on flow behaviour and the interaction between materials and boundary surfaces in order to reduce dust generation and surface wear.
Particle size reduction is an important process in many industrial sectors such as chemical, pharmaceutical and mining.
Particle Analytics solutions enable customers to extract meaningful information related to impact to help improve the quality and efficiency of the process.
Of particular importance to the mining and mineral processing industry, Particle Analytics solutions help companies better understand the behaviour of bulk materials and equipment during the excavation process.
The performance of soil movement is an important aspect in construction and agricultural applications.
Particle Analytics solutions provide additional information to understand the soil flow and interaction with the machinery.
