Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperScientificpeer-review


Two different forest chip assortments were treated in an air-blown cyclone. Through cyclone treatment, particle sizes and particle distribution widths were decreased. For one of the assortments, due to splitting along the grain, particle sphericity was decreased and flow properties were impaired. For the other assortment, as a consequence of rough edge wear-off of particles, sphericity was increased and flow properties improved.
