Jenike & Johanson Exhibits and Presents at Powder & Bulk Solids Texas 2013

2013-10-14 | - | Houston, Texas, USA

Join Jenike & Johanson as we present four separate sessions at the Powder & Bulk Solids Texas show, and exhibit at booth #114.

Monday October 14, 2013
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Fundamentals of Powder Flow Technology

This session will discuss the cause of common flow problems that arise when powders and bulk solids are put into silos, hoppers, and feeders. A fundamental understanding of powder handling technology is essential to solving costly material handling problems.
  • Common flow problems (e.g., arching, ratholing, flooding, segregation)
  • Flow patterns (funnel and mass flow) through storage equipment
  • Measuring vital bulk solids flow properties
  • Review of powder test equipment
  • Interpretation of common test results
Eric Maynard, Director of Education / Senior Consultant, Jenike & Johanson, Inc.
 
1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Material Handling and Storage

With the knowledge of material properties, proper design of storage, handling, and feeding equipment can be made. This session will review an example flow properties test report with consideration to applying the results to silo and feeder design. This session will also cover a step-by-step storage vessel design technique, which has been effectively used for over 60 years.
  • Understanding an example powder flow test report
  • Step-by-step design process for a storage vessel and feeder
Dr. Andrés Orlando, Project Engineer, Jenike & Johanson, Inc.
 
1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Troubleshooting Common Pneumatic Conveying Problems

Problems such as pipeline wear, particle degradation (i.e., fines generation), reduced throughput, and plugging frequently occur during pneumatic transport of many bulk solids. These issues negatively affect system efficiency and create costly bottlenecks and possibly safety hazards. By understanding the fundamental causes of these problems through effective troubleshooting, practical solutions can be realized and effectively implemented. This session will cover the following key topics:
  • Types of problems (wear, fines generation, plugging, rate limits)
  • Causes of problems
  • Troubleshooting techniques
  • Solutions to pneumatic conveying problems
Eric Maynard, Director of Education / Senior Consultant, Jenike & Johanson, Inc.
 
Tuesday October 15, 2013
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Understanding Mixing, Blending, Sampling and Segregation of Bulk Solids

Obtaining a uniform mixture of blend can be challenging with dry powders, especially if cohesive. Many blending options are available, and selecting the correct equipment will ensure efficient mixing operations. This session will provide the fundamental information for mixing and blending practices, as well as coverage of effective sampling practices. Additionally, coverage of post-mix handling to avoid segregation will be presented to ensure maintenance of a uniform product through the process. This session will cover the following key topics:
  • Types of mixers and blenders
  • Mixing mechanisms
  • Key sampling practices
  • Mechanisms of segregation
  • Solutions to segregation problems
