The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology is part of the School of Engineering at The University of Greenwich at Medway, Kent and has specialised in solving materials handling problems since 1973.

As well as being involved in the design of many new facilities, we are increasingly asked to troubleshoot various biomass handling problems which lead to unplanned shutdowns and often expensive plant modifications, seriously denting the marginal profitability of biomass processing and utilisation.

We are continually improving the understanding of the behaviour of particulates in handling and storage systems and can offer Consultancy services to industry in the fields of:

  • Hoppers and Silos
  • Pneumatic Conveying
  • Product Feeders
  • Product Quality (segregation, attrition and caking)
  • Environmental and Transport effects
  • Dosing and Dispensing
  • Instrumentation and Control
  • Abrasion and Wear
  • Overall system design and integration
  • Sampling
  • Dust prevention and control
  • Packaging
  • Processing of powders and bulk solids

We have the greatest collection of resources to tackle solids handling challenges all under one roof, anywhere in the UK or Europe, possibly in the world! Our industrial scale plant is available for your project, including pneumatic and mechanical conveying, hoppers and silos, screening, blending, feeding, dosing, pressing, transport, drying, environmental effects, control systems and all that you find in a real plant or logistics chain.  Many of the tests and models used have been developed here and are available nowhere else in the world!

The Centre also provides a comprehensive series of short courses which are delivered at the University’s campus or on site in a bespoke format.
