This is an intensive short 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. Specially prepared by the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling, this course has already been attended by over three hundred engineers from industry and is regularly updated to reflect new developments and changes in industrial practice.
You will learn:
- Techniques for reducing product degradation during handling
- How to troubleshoot problematic systems
- Ways to reduce maintenance, repair and unplanned stoppages to material handling hardware
- Design fundamentals for specifying equipment
- Characterisation of materials
- Relevant case studies from industry
- Introduction to storage and handling of bulk materials
- Hoppers and silos
- Pneumatic, screw and belt conveying
- Characterisation of bulk solids
- Dust Control
- Discharge aids
- Segregation, degradation and caking
