Learn the techniques to predict and solve bulk materials handling problems
The course calendar for 2019 is now out – book early to secure your place.
Look out for the new courses below, designed due to an increase in the number of problems we are asked to help with:
|14 – 15 February||Pneumatic Conveying System Design; in-depth exploration of detailed calculations for design of pneumatic pipelines and specifying associated plant|
|6 March||Dust Control for Processes; dust prevention, capture and extraction methods|
|12 – 13 March||Port and Terminal Operations for Bulk Cargoes; bulk materials handling and safety issues at ports and at sea|
|1 – 2 May||Design of Equipment for Storing and Discharging Bulk Materials; developed with specification writers and equipment designers in mind|
|22 – 23 May||Numerical Modelling of Solids Handling and Processing; explanation of key principles for each method and how to relate them to particulate and bulk characterisation|
|4 – 6 June||Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Materials; components of pneumatic conveying systems, system selection and design techniques|
|2 – 3 July||Powder Handling and Flow for Additive Manufacturing; a guide through the critical aspects of powder handling and management for powder-based additive manufacturing processing|
|24 – 26 Sept||Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Materials; basics of hopper and silo operation, design and specification, including storage and flow of materials, and selection of feeders and discharge aids.|
|22 – 24 October||Overview of Particulate Handling Technology; introduction to the storing and handling of bulk materials, equipment selection and design methodologies for safe and reliable plant|
|12 – 13 November||Pneumatic Conveying System Design; in-depth exploration of detailed calculations for design of pneumatic pipelines and specifying associated plant|
|14 November||Rotary Valves: Design, Selection and Operational Issues; an exploration of the different valves and features availableboo|
