Bulk Solids Handling & Processing Innovations
We have been delivering short courses for over 25 years, both at the university and in the workplace. Over this time we’ve developed strong links with industry, offering consultancy, research projects and short courses that combine technological excellence with personalised teaching. We have now included practical sessions with some of our courses, to help delegates consolidate the theory.
All our courses are designed to suit the needs of engineers, whether in the pharmaceutical, food processing, minerals, power generation or recycling industries; in fact anyone involved in the handling of bulk solid materials or the flow of powders will benefit. They are designed for engineers, managers, skilled operatives, maintenance crew or anyone involved in using or handling powders or particulates.
You don’t need advanced qualifications either – a basic technical education and/or industry experience is enough.
Our courses cover different aspects of bulk materials handling:
Overview: An exploration of the different methods for dust prevention, capture and extraction.
Course fee: £520 per delegate
Venue: Chatham, Kent
Contact: Caroline Chapman Wolfsonemail@example.com , +44 20 8331 8646
Overview: Bulk materials handling and safety issues at ports and at sea.
Course fee: £1200 per delegate (ABTO members £1100)
Overview: Understanding the storage and handling requirements of bulk materials when drawing up specifications and designing hoppers and silos is of fundamental importance for the optimal operation of the plant. This course guides delegates through Best Practice to ensure the full potential is reached.
Course fee: 825 per delegate
Overview: An explanation of key principles for each method and how to relate them to particle and bulk characterisation.
For each modelling technique the course will cover
Course fee: £825 per delegate
Overview: This intensive 2 day course looks at system components, design techniques, operation and control of blow tank systems, explosion hazards and operational problems, as well as the important but often neglected area of interfacing storage bins with conveying systems.
Course fee: £825 / £1260 per delegate
This course is organised by the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology in conjunction with LPW Technology, the Fraunhofer IFAM Institute, Bremen and the Knowledge Transfer Network (AM section).
Reason to attend: you will be guided through the critical aspects of powder management for metal and plastics powder-based AM processing
Course topics include:
Course fee: £520 / £825 per delegate
Venue: LPW Technology, Cheshire
Overview: Facilities storing bulk solid materials sometimes experience operational problems – often because they have been designed without knowledge of the flow characteristics of the material to be stored. This course advises on preventing such problems.
Overview: This is an intensive course designed to introduce the technology of storing and handling bulk materials. It also covers the problems that can result from incorrect equipment selection, and looks at appropriate design methodologies for safe and reliable plant.
Overview: The ultimate aim is to share the most up-to-date knowledge on how to obtain pipeline designs that work reliably, delivering the required throughput without unplanned maintenance and undesired impact on quality of the powder being handled.
Course fee: £825 per delegate
Overview: This course will help delegates understand the reasons for the many hundreds of different options of rotary valves available and how to choose them.
