Although many pneumatic conveying equipment advances have been made, costly problems – including wear, attrition, rate limitation and line plugging – continue to occur.
Learn how to apply practical design and troubleshooting principles to improve the efficiency, safety and reliability of pneumatic conveying systems transporting powders and bulk solids.
Ensure trouble-free flow
In one day, you’ll review the fundamentals of gas/solids flow and address common pneumatic conveying problems, modes of transport in a pipeline and scale-model tests and their use in designing and evaluating poorly operating systems. You’ll discuss line chargers (feeders), proven pipeline layout rules and criteria for elbow/bend selection. The instructor also will cover more specialized topics including dense phase conveying systems and gas/solids separators such as cyclones, filters and bag houses.
Real-life industrial case histories will help increase your understanding of the theory and application taught.
What you will learn
- Define the types of systems and the four primary system components.
- Explain key terms like saltation and pickup velocity.
- Apply safe handling practices for the pneumatic conveying of combustible solids.
- Inspect common conveying problems like wear, attrition, rate limitation, and line plugging.
- Contrast implementation vs. construction.
Engineers involved in designing, selecting, troubleshooting, maintaining or purchasing pneumatic conveying equipment – including:
- Plant and project managers
- Operation and process managers
- Project, process and maintenance engineers
- Unit operators and superintendents
- Professionals new to the field of pneumatic conveying
