The drawing up of specifications and correct design of hoppers, silos, bunkers and other large scale bulk storage schemes is of fundamental importance for the optimal operation of plant. Many processes fail to reach their designed throughput or suffer from 'unforeseen' handling problems. The root cause of a very large proportion of these issues can be traced back to a failure to understand the storage and handling requirements of the bulk materials and hence installations that do not incorporate bulk characteristics into the design process may encounter these issues.

This course has been developed with specification writers and equipment designers/suppliers in mind. Practical and 'hands-on' exercises will feature in the course structure.
