Testing helps determine the most efficient technique for your application

    TestCenter for pneumatic conveying and dust collection in the USA.

    Tests boost efficient design for your systems. Hundreds of materials and airborne particulates are tested annually in the four ultramodern Mac Process TestCenters for pneumatic conveying, dust collection and feeding. These tests form the basis of our vast database of material properties and performance data. Testing helps determine the most efficient technique and configuration for your specific application.

    Tests improve results

    Our TestCenters simulate real world conditions of pneumatic conveying or dust collection systems. Testing provides essential information for specifying equipment, making incorrect applications a thing of the past. Benefit from:

    • Calculation of material handling characteristics

    • Particle size analysis

    • Bulk density measurement

    • Calculation of horizontal and vertical pick-up velocities

    • Information on flow characteristics and storage

    • From small random sample examinations to tests of any size

    In addition to the standard equipment warranty, lab testing may allow us to provide enhanced emissions and performance warranties. You are more than welcome to attend tests in person.
