Having encountered frequent similar problems through providing consultancy services, experts at the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology have put together some essential presentations to help delegates identify potential issues before they become a major headache, and advise on how to help solve or avoid the problems that may otherwise occur.
Courses start in January and continue through February in short sessions from 14:00 – 17:00 hrs UK time each afternoon, allowing plenty of time to discuss operational issues with the presenters and other delegates.
20 – 21 January: Measurement of the Properties and Bulk Behaviour of Particulate Materials – an overview of methods for determining bulk behavior of particulate materials.
Subjects covered include: Particle size and density measurement techniques / Flow property measurements / Moisture uptake / Propensity for de-blending, degradation or caking issues / Explosability / Pneumatic conveying properties / Dustiness testing
27 – 28 January: Undesired Deblending and Separation in Processes and Equipment – identification of common segregation mechanisms and how to minimize the effects
Subjects covered include: air-induced, rolling and surface effect segregation as well as percolation- how and why they occur and how to prevent or minimize the disruption caused.
17 – 18 February: Dust Control for Processes – dust prevention, capture and extraction methods
Subjects covered include: Characterisation of bulk particulates/materials handling/dust control/plant audit
24 – 25 February: Electrostatics in Powder Handling – the cause and effect of electrostatic charging in bulk solids handling
Subjects covered include: Electrostatic charges / Hazards encountered
If you work with powders or particulate materials, these courses could be of benefit.
Course fees are £450 per delegate per course. Discounts are applied for group bookings and multiple registrations.
