Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Materials

24 September - 26 September

| £825 – £1260
Non-premium event

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.

Day 3 is an optional day in the on-site laboratories using some of the equipment and seeing the processes discussed in the theory section.

Subjects covered:

  • An introduction to the storage and flow of bulk solid materials in hoppers, bins and bunkers
  • Determining the flow properties of bulk solids
  • Determination of hopper geometry
  • Predicting discharge rates
  • Feeders and feeding
  • Hopper discharge aids
  • Prediction of wall loadings and their effect on structural design
  • Discussion/troubleshooting period

Course fee: £825 / £1260 per delegate
