This webinar presents how Rocky DEM can help engineers adjust their designs and improve product quality control.
Screw feeders are extensively adopted in the food, plastics, mineral processing and agriculture industries as an efficient and economical method of bulk material handling. Compositional variations and quality issues in the outgoing stream are related to varying residence times and can also arise due to non-uniform drawdown patterns.
To improve the Screw Feeder equipment, simulation tools help engineers evaluate the influence of design upon screw conveyor efficiency under different mass flow rates and speeds.
This webinar presents how Rocky DEM, the state-of-the-art Discrete Element Method (DEM) solver, can help engineers adjust their designs and improve product quality control, as well as reduce power consumption and wear on their conveying equipment.
