Bulk Materials Handling Training Returns to the Classroom

Bulk Materials Handling Training Returns to the Classroom
These two popular courses cover a variety of essential topics, giving a good base knowledge to the new recruit, or a valuable learning experience to the more experienced engineer.

Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Materials; A general short course covering some of the most common issues encountered by process engineers when handling bulk materials including material build-up in hoppers and unreliable discharge of the contents.

Taking place in April you will learn about

  • Basics of hopper and silo design and function
  • Dealing with potential problems
  • Discharge aids and interfacing to feeders
Bulk Materials Handling Training Returns to the Classroom

Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Materials; A basic level course covering 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.

Taking place in May you will learn about

  • Techniques for reducing product degradation during conveying
  • Ways to reduce maintenance, repair and unplanned stoppages to pneumatic conveying equipment
  • Explosion Hazards including ATEX Directives

These courses are being offered in two formats: online or face to face.

The course content is the same on either course.

  • Online: delivered over 5 morning sessions,
  • If you prefer to attend in person, you can now do so for a two day course at our premises in Chatham, Kent.

Attendees on either course are also invited to join the Practical Workshop following the campus-based courses, where some of the theoretical aspects are demonstrated in our on-site laboratories.

Who should attend?
All courses are written with the engineer in mind.  They are recommended for operators who handle bulk materials daily, for maintenance, Health & Safety officers, plant or equipment designers, and manufacturers, or management of such staff. Anyone who handles any form of bulk material could benefit from attending.

Fees and Registration:

Starting at £675 online/ £825 on campus, discounts are applied for group bookings and multiple registrations.
