Tewkesbury, UK – Powders play an integral part in the production of many products and it is widely acknowledged that they are challenging to handle. It is therefore vital for engineers and processors to have a good understanding of powder behaviour in order to optimise productivity and improve quality. This is particularly applicable in powder metallurgy, where the flowability of metal powders is crucial to efficiency, including enhancing performance of Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes.

A new conference on particulate materials (PARMAT2017) is organized by eight Working Parties of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) in the frame of the WCCE10-ECCE11-ECAB4, which will be held from 1st to 5th October 2017. This initiative started in ECCE10 aiming to be a meeting point for academia and industry to share the latest scientific progresses and technological advances in fields were particulate materials are involved. More specifically, PARMAT2017 is devoted to all the aspects related to the chemical and mechanical processing, handling and characterization of particulate materials in industry, including hazards and risks that are usually presented during these operations. This International Conference will provide a unique opportunity to integrate academic/scientific research and industry issues and requirements from researchers and industrialists around the world.
Which are the benefits of participating?
- Increased awareness of academic/scientific researchers in the areas of industrial applications, problems, requirements, equipment and instrumentation
- Future Research and Development directions and projects
- Increased awareness of industry users/ suppliers in the areas of “academic” achievements, expertise and capabilities
- Increased academic/industry networks, linkages and relationships
Deadline for abstract submission: 30th January 2017.

Utica, NY, USA – A new sanitary, high-intensity continuous blender, Model HIM-124-S316, from Munson Machinery provides low to high shear as required for high speed blending and/or homogenising of dry solids, agglomerates, slurries or pastes when processing food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals or other contamination-sensitive materials.
Bulk Material Blending System Aids In Process GMP Validation; Provides Precise, Automated Performance; Improves Operator Safety
Holland, Michigan, USA (October 1, 2016) – This fully automated, self-contained, bulk material mixing system by National Bulk Equipment, Inc. (NBE) blends a combination of five, highly caustic, free flowing powdered additives with a sluggish flowing, high dusting base ingredient. The base ingredient is automatically introduced into the system from a single, 64 cubic-foot surge hopper that feeds either of two horizontal screw conveyors; depending on the blend recipe and the material requirements of downstream packaging operations. The caustic, free flowing additives; previously manually added to the process, are input to the system using five, NBE Lift-and-Seal™ drum dumper units. Each NBE drum dumper unit has an automatic centering system to ensure a precise seal of the drum to the dumper unit’s custom-designed discharge hood.
Mixing, coating and drying with high-performance mixers
Detmold/Germany, March 2016 – Where surfaces of inorganic recipe components have to be homogeneously, completely and reproducibly coated with functional coatings in batch processes, high-performance universal mixers of the Uni tec® series from MTI Mischtechnik offer significant advantages over conventional systems.
