Paper Title:
Using Flow Properties to Solve Flow Problems with Hard-to-Handle Powders in the Ceramics Industry
  Abstract

Many processes in ceramic manufacturing require handling of fine powders with particle sizes down to sub-micron range. Problems that are often experienced with these powders, such as stoppages and/or surges, can be predicted and prevented by first measuring relevant flow properties of these powders, and then using these properties to design a handling system. In this paper we will review common problems with handling such powders and the relevant flow properties tests, such as permeability, compressibility, cohesive strength and friction, as well as how these properties can be used to prevent and solve problems. Issues related to handling titanium dioxide (TiO2) will be used as an illustration.
