Sample Analysis

The analysis of bulk materials plays a central role in many industries, from the food industry to mining. One of the main characteristics often examined in bulk materials is grain size. The distribution of grain size indicates which portions of the bulk material fall into specific size classes, which in turn can influence flow properties and compaction.

Another important characteristic of bulk materials is their flowability. If a bulk material does not flow well, it can lead to problems in production or during filling. Various factors, such as moisture, grain size and shape, as well as electrostatic charging, can influence flowability.

Bulk density indicates how much mass of a bulk material is contained in a specific volume when poured without external force. This is particularly important when considering storage capacity and transport. Different bulk densities can also provide clues about different grain sizes or impurities.

The moisture content of a bulk material is a crucial factor that can influence its flowability, shelf life, and other physical properties.
