PSRI has state of the art facilities to do research on an industrial scale. As a result, PSRI’s research is relevant to your problems and your bottom line. That is because wall effects matter, pressure effects matter, and temperature effects matter. With PSRI’s research, the data is relevant and applicable.
Experiments are tailored to represent the granular-fluid hydrodynamics experienced in industrial operating conditions. In short, size, particle drag, fines level, and bubble hydrodynamics all need to be managed in order to provide relevant experimental data.
Data also need to be useful for engineering applications. Thus, PSRI employs a wide range of techniques to get reproducible, accurate, and quantifiable data. Some of these technique and analysis methods include fiber optic backscattered probes, ultrasonics and acoustics, capacitance tomography, wavelet decomposition, gas and solid tracers, etc.
