Test results you can rely on.
Schenck Process Group TestCenters around the globe.
No matter what materials you work with, chances are we have tested them. That’s
because we have tested more than 4,000 bulk materials in more than 40,000 tests
conducted in our labs throughout the world.
And, if your particular product hasn’t been tested yet, then the right tests in our
TestCenter will provide you with comprehensive answers. Proven bulk materials
technology from Schenck Process. Tested and approved so you can be certain
that our feeders, dust collectors or pneumatic conveying systems are perfectly
compatible with your material.
Which feeder is best for which bulk material? What needs to be considered for
pneumatic conveying and dust collection? Schenck Process operates TestCenters
around the globe which are tailored to your individual requirements. Two of these
centers are located in Darmstadt, Germany. Additional test facilities can be found
at our locations in the UK, Austria, the Czech Republic and the USA.
Our TestCenters are equipped to
simulate loss-in-weight feeding, refilling,
weighing, dilute and dense phase
conveying and filtration to help confirm
the configured design meets the
most efficient, economical method of
processing your material ahead of time.
Food handling solutions
Whether we are conveying 300,000 lbs. of sugar or feeding
small amounts of food additives, our experienced staff
will work with you to select the most appropriate, costeffective and energy efficient technology for your product.
We deliver all types of pneumatic conveying technologies
and have a complete selection of air filtration, weighing
and feeding solutions to solve your toughest bulk material
handling challenges.
