Understanding the Causes of Powder and Bulk Material Handling Problems

This session will discuss the causes of common flow problems that arise when powders and bulk solids are put into silos, hoppers, and feeders.
  • Review differences between bulk solids and liquids.
  • Learn about causes of arching and ratholing
  • Discuss fine powder flooding and blend segregation
  • Examine two types of storage vessel (e.g., silo, hopper, bin) flow patterns
Presenter: Eric Maynard, Senior Consultant, JENIKE & JOHANSON INC.  

Practical Solutions to Costly Bulk Solids Flow Problems

This session provides solutions to costly flow problems that normally occur with silos, hoppers, and feeders. Methods to characterize a bulk material's flow properties will be presented, along with a proven step-by-step storage vessel design process.
  • Learn about key flow properties test measurements
  • Examine critical design requirements for a storage vessel (e.g., silo, hopper, bin)
  • Review proven process for selecting and designing a silo or bin
Presenter: Eric Maynard, Senior Consultant, JENIKE & JOHANSON INC.

Solving and Preventing Costly Segregation Problems with Your Powders and Blends

Maintaining a uniform blend of dry bulk solids is a problem faced daily by engineers and operators in industries as varied as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, foods, plastics, and battery production. Even if a "good" blend is achieved, often the major problem is how to maintain that blend through downstream powder handling in equipment. The inability of maintain a blend (i.e. segregation) at the point where it is needed, is always costly in terms of rejected material, extra blending time, and defective end products.
  • Learn about mechanisms of segregation
  • Examine segregation test methods to quantify separation potential
  • Review proven solutions to reduce or prevent segregation problems

Critical Lessons for Mixing, Blending, and Sampling Operations

Obtaining a uniform blend of dry bulk solids is a common problem in many industries, especially pharmaceuticals, foods, chemicals. Poor blending, or the inability of maintain a blend (i.e. segregation) at the point where it is needed, is always costly in terms of rejected material, extra blending time, and defective end products.
  • Review types of blending mechanisms
  • Discuss various batch and continuous blenders
  • Examine solutions to common blending problems
  • Learn about proper sampling techniques
