About K-State Bulk Solids Innovation Center

The nearly 13,000-square-foot facility, is located in Salina (KS), USA, and used to study and develop the understanding of bulk solids materials handling, in turn enhancing the businesses that use these materials or manufacture the systems that convey, store and dispense them. This university-level research center is the only one of its kind in North America. K-State is the key tenant in the center, while two local companies, Coperion K-Tron and Vortex Valves, supplement the facility by serving as anchor occupants.


Bulk solids make up more than 80 percent of items transported around the world, yet formal education and research about the science of these materials is not completely understood. How they transport and how they behave during processing require more examination. The Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center is a valued resource to companies that design and utilize systems for bulk solids. The center is used to study and gain understanding of how to handle these materials, and in turn, will enhance efficiency and productiveness in those businesses’ operations.
