We support industries that are seeking to resolve process problems, develop design schemes for plant expansion, or simply improve product quality.
Who should attend?
*plant designer *plant manager * maintenance staff * operational staff * senior management *anyone actively involved in design or troubleshooting of pneumatic conveying systems *
These courses will improve your ability to deal with the design and troubleshooting of different systems. They aim to provide a better understanding of potential problems and how to make your plant as efficient and trouble-free as possible
2 – 3 November: Commissioning and Troubleshooting ‘Hands-on’ Pneumatic Conveying Systems; a look at the practical challenges of starting up systems on-site and making sure they work as the designer intended
16 – 20 November: Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Materials; components of pneumatic conveying systems, selection, and design techniques.
Subjects covered include: dilute and dense phase conveying / Selecting the correct hardware for your application / Matching appropriate feeders to pneumatic systems / Dust control methodology / Practical design considerations / Elimination of explosion hazards / Positive and negative pressure systems
7 – 11 December: Pneumatic Conveying System Design; in-depth exploration of detailed calculations for design of pneumatic pipelines and specifying plant
Subjects covered include: Lean versus dense phase pneumatic conveying/obtaining conveying information/equations for predicting pipeline pressure drop and throughput / how stepped bore pipelines enhance system performance and reduce problems / a detailed look at bends/air humidity effects / Practical details – choice of coupling systems, pipe specification systems, etc.
15 – 16 December; Rotary Valves: Design, Selection and Operational Issues; an exploration of the different valves and features available
Subjects covered include: Basics of rotary valve performance / Seals and bearings, options, functions, and selection / Features for cleaning and preventing contamination / Venting – needs, options and ensuring success / ATEX requirements and responsibilities
