BISSELL is a family-owned company, a leader in the homecare business for over five generations. It is committed to understanding how proper cleaning can improve people’s lives, especially when it comes to pets.
As pet owners’ number-one choice in floorcare in the U.S.A., BISSELL focuses on cleaning products designed specifically for animal messes, such as carpet cleaners, vacuum cleaners, steam and hard floor cleaners, and sweepers.
BISSELL had previously performed tests using a variety of discrete element modeling (DEM) software, but none matched BISSELL’s established criteria for simulation efficiency and accuracy.
BISSELL needed something different and unique, so it turned to Rocky DEM to optimize the product design of a cyclone device, using a model capable of accurately predicting the behavior of pet hair.
We have been using Rocky DEM for almost one year and have found it essential to our process: It has proved to be the only one with flexible fiber model coupled with CFD — flow solution and real representation of the particles, being able to analyze our equipment with the exact number of particles and format.”
