Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Solids

June 4 - June 6

£825

This intensive, two-day course was originally prepared at the request of the Department of Trade and Industry and first held in 1981. Since then over three hundred engineers from industry have attended. The course is regularly updated to reflect changes in industrial practice and new developments in pneumatic conveying technology.

During the course we’ll cover subjects including system components, design techniques, operation and control of blow tank systems, explosion hazards and operational problems. The course also deals with the important but often neglected area of interfacing storage bins with conveying systems.

You will learn:
  • Techniques for reducing product degradation during conveying
  • Ways to reduce maintenance, repair and unplanned stoppages to pneumatic conveying equipment
  • Methods of reducing energy consumption
  • How to troubleshoot problematic systems
  • How to eliminate blockages in pneumatic pipelines
  • Explosion Hazards including ATEX Directives
  • Operation and control of blow tanks
  • System selection and operation
  • Interfacing storage bins to conveying systems
  • Relevant case studies from industry
Format

It’s a two-day course, with an emphasis on practical aspects of technology. We’ll begin with a comprehensive introduction to give a basic understanding of the operation of pneumatic pipelines, before moving on to more detailed work.

We’ll use case studies throughout to illustrate the presentations, with plenty of discussion periods so that we can analyse any specific problems experienced by attendees.

A third, optional, day is offered for delegates to use the equipment and processes discussed in the theory session
