Based within the School of Engineering at the University of Greenwich in England, the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology has extensive testing facilities to evaluate problematic bulk materials, ranging from a simple processing step through to a mock-up for a whole handling process or logistics chain, at full scale or near full scale.

Experts are also available to offer advice on powder and bulk materials handling, whether via a quick phone call (often at no cost), a remote ‘site visit’ via video or by completing a desk study using existing data to make outline evaluations on operation or plant design.

Areas of expertise include

  • Pneumatic Conveying
  • Storage and Discharge of powders and bulk materials
  • Material flow and characterisation
  • Plant and equipment design
  • Expert Witness services
