Powder & Bulk Engineering Magazine will be sponsoring the 2013 Midwest Conference and Powder Show May 21-23 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.
Eric Maynard, Director of Education/Senior Consultant with Jenike & Johanson, will be presenting an all-day workshop on “Designing handling equipment for powders and bulk solids” on May 21. This session will focus on common flow problems that arise when powders and bulk solids are put into silos, hoppers, feeders, and chutes. Methods to characterize a material’s flow properties will be presented along with proven, practical, and cost effective equipment design solutions. Special attention will be given to common flow problems, measuring vital bulk solids flow properties, powder test equipment, flow test reporting and step-by-step design process for storage vessel, feeder and transfer chutes.
