Learn About the Flow of Bulk Solids in Bins, Hoppers, Feeders and Their Pneumatic Transport

Jenike & Johanson engineers will be presenting their popular powder and bulk solids handling courses for ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 6-8, 2006 and in Chicago, Illinois on April 17-19, 2006 (visit www.asme.org/education for complete details). The training will include discussion of hopper flow patterns, testing of powder flow properties and their relation to bin design, feeder design principles, handling of fine powders and fluidization, segregation of bulk solids, transfer chute design, and the proper use of flow aids. The third day will include a discussion of the fundamentals of pneumatic transport and how to troubleshoot and solve problems with a poorly operating pneumatic conveying system.

Proper training of personnel involved in solids handling and processing is essential to operating an efficient and reliable bulk solids handling system. Since the theory of bulk solids handling is seldom a part of formal engineering training, many in industry lack an understanding of why solids handling problems occur and what practical steps can be taken to diagnose, alleviate, or prevent them. Training helps to foster greater awareness of operating efficiency, safety, and process improvement, along with an understanding of the reasoning behind required equipment modifications or upgrades.
