Test center analyzes flow properties of bulk solids
JR Johanson's cohesive strength tester helps solve solids flow problems by discovering unusual strength properties of hard- to- handle materials.
JR Johanson Inc., a solids flow and processing consulting firm, operates a test center at its headquarters in San Luis Obispo, Calif. The center receives samples of bulk solids from companies all over the world. These samples are tested for cohesion [unconfined yield strength], friction, adhesion, permeability, compressibility, wear rate on handling equipment, degradation, dustiness, segregation potential, and drying parameters.
