Solids handling problems are common throughout many industries, thanks to a lack of focus around bulk solids training, and common trial-and-error approaches. 70% of all products contain at least some ingredients handled as bulk solids, and studies have shown problems around bulk solids handling has led to higher production costs and lower product quality.

This webinar will provide insights into common flow problems, and offer general steps on how to solve them.
