Description

Independent expertise and cost-effective solutions to industrial problems.

Our Mission: To help industry to get it's powders and bulk materials to behave in the way they need them to!

Our philosophy

Our key to getting material to behave as you want it to, is to measure its behaviour in a relevant setting, then use that information in a sound process model to design or select the right solution.  The same techniques can be used also to help in reformulating materials you make, so they behave better in your, or your customers', plants.

Our Services:

An important aspect of the work undertaken by The Wolfson Centre relates to its independent and impartial status.  This enables the evaluation of plant schemes and recommendations for equipment types to be made based purely on the basis of suitability for the application.

Our Clients:

Industries involved in the processing of powders, particulates and other bulk solids materials from across the spectrum including (but not limited to) food and drink, pharmaceuticals, minerals, renewable energy, chemicals, plastics, recycling, metals, household goods, paper, cosmetics, textiles and rubber.

Ranging from small local companies to international conglomerates.

Our industrial-scale pilot plant is available to test a processing step, or mock up a whole handling process or logistics chain, at full scale or near full scale. This can be used to find and solve the problems off-line, then when you transfer the same process or material to your own or your customers' plant, you can be confident it will work!

Our Experts have over one hundred man-years of experience in solving bulk materials handling problems. Along with a team of Researchers they concentrate on nothing else but the needs of Industry – and are at your disposal.

Our location offers excellent transport links within the UK and EU enabling us to provide a prompt and flexible response to site visit requests and client meetings.
