Practical and ultra modern
Which feeder is best for which bulk material? In order to provide customers with accurate answers to this question, Schenck Process GmbH are now offering tests at their new, modern TestCenter in Darmstadt that are based on real life situations. The specialist in measuring and process technologies invited its customers to the centre's official opening on 27 February.
More than 100 people attended the event to learn more about what the new centre has to offer. Just like at a trade fair, the event enabled them to view several highlights under one roof. More test rigs and an improved level of automation mean that the TestCenter can now run even more accurate tests, all very closely based on actual processing circumstances.
Just like real life
Tests in the four test labs can be run in parallel without impacting negatively on one another. Three of the test labs feature different equipment for filling the feeders with bulk bags or pneumatic feeding and complete cycle feeding. The fourth lab can be heated in a way that simulates different ambient conditions and can even simulate the environments of hot climates.
All this means that the test processes undertaken are very simple to run. For example, the centre includes:
- separate dust separation
