Particle Impact Analysis of Bulk Powder During Pneumatic Conveyance

Richardson, G. and Cooker, M. and Delaney, N. and Hanley, K. and Hjorth, P. and Mackey, D. and Mason, J. and Mitchell, S. and O'Sullivan, C. (2009) Particle Impact Analysis of Bulk Powder During Pneumatic Conveyance. [Study Group Report]



Fragmentation of powders during transportation is a common problem for manufacturers of food and pharmaceutical products. We illustrate that the primary cause of breakage is due to inter-particle collisions, rather than particle-wall impacts, and provide a statistical mechanics model giving the number of collisions resulting in fragmentation.
