Conveyor transfer systems account for a small percentage of the infrastructure cost of a plant or mine but poorly-performing transfer points are often responsible for significant operational challenges, resulting in unplanned down-time, reduced throughput, and lost productivity.

Discover EDEM BulkSim - specialized bulk material flow simulation software for transfer chute design & optimization.

EDEM BulkSim simulation enables engineers to evaluate and verify the design performance of transfer points and chutes. By predicting bulk material flow and interaction with equipment components, it enables design engineers to identify and remedy potential problems in a design, such as material build-up and blockage, flow dispersion, spillage, size segregation, and excessive belt and chute wear — before commissioning.

"Over the past several years Hatch has been integrating EDEM simulation technology and services into design projects and has achieved a high level of confidence in materials handling equipment designs. This results in substantial benefits around design robustness, equipment reliability in plant start-up and commissioning, and increasing plant quality, yield and performance…"

Simulate Material. Deliver Results.

EDEM is the market-leading software for bulk  and granular material simulation.

Powered by Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) technology, EDEM quickly and accurately simulates and analyzes the behavior of bulk materials such as coal, mined ores, soil, tablet, and powders.

EDEM simulation provides engineers with crucial insight into how bulk materials will interact with their equipment during a range of operation and process conditions.
