Consulting - Material Processing
To be competitive, industrial companies improve process efficiency and optimize designs using numerical simulation, in addition to experimentation, to gain detailed understanding of each control parameter. For over 20 years, Itasca has provided software and services for the pharmaceutical, chemical, materials processing, mining, oil and gas, and agricultural engineering industries.
The conveying of granular materials is present in many industries: pharmaceuticals with helical screws, food processing with vibration systems, mining with conveyor belts, among other examples. These systems require many adjustments to achieve optimal performance, which also depends on the material used and environmental factors: size distribution, grain shape, water content, etc. It is experimentally impossible to consider and test all configurations in ...
One of the main advantages of the discrete approach as defined by Itasca (PFC) is that it allows to accurately reproduce the size distribution, the grain shape (rounded, angular, or elongated), the mineralogical composition, as well as the mechanical and thermal properties of each ...
