Jenike & Johanson engineers will be presenting their popular bulk material handling and pneumatic conveying training courses through AIChE in Toronto, Canada on June 18-20 (click here to register and review conference details). Course will be held at the Canadian Management Centre in downtown Toronto. Special room discounts offered at nearby Toronto Hilton hotel.
The training will include discussion of hopper flow patterns, testing of powder flow properties and their relation to silo and hopper 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.
Continuing education units (CEU) or professional development hours (PDH) are received upon successful completion of this vital training.
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.
