Overview of Particulate Handling Technology

October 22 - October 24

£1260

This is an intensive, two-day short course designed to introduce the technology of storing and handling bulk materials. It also covers the problems that can result from incorrect equipment selection, and looks at appropriate design methodologies for safe and reliable plant. Specially prepared by the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling, this course has already been attended by over three hundred engineers from industry and is regularly updated to reflect new developments and changes in industrial practice.

You will learn:
  • Techniques for reducing product degradation during handling
  • How to troubleshoot problematic systems
  • Ways to reduce maintenance, repair and unplanned stoppages to material handling hardware
  • Design fundamentals for specifying equipment
  • Characterisation of materials
  • ATEX Directives
  • Relevant case studies from industry
Format

This is a two-day course, with an emphasis on practical aspects of technology. You’ll begin with a comprehensive introduction to materials handling, before moving on to the more detailed subjects. A third (optional) day is offered to spend time in the laboratory, using some of the equipment and techniques discussed in the theory session.

Subjects covered
  • Introduction to storage and handling of bulk materials
  • Hoppers and silos
  • Pneumatic, screw and belt conveying
  • Characterisation of bulk solids
  • Dust Control
  • Sampling
  • Discharge aids
  • Feeders
  • Segregation, degradation and caking
  • Operational problems and troubleshooting
  • Case studies are used throughout to illustrate the presentations, and substantial discussion periods are included to permit the analysis of specific problems experienced by attendees
