Eric joined Jenike & Johanson in 1996. He has published over 50 articles on the storage, flow, and pneumatic transport of bulk solids. He is the principal instructor for the “Flow of solids in bins, hoppers, chutes, and feeders” and “Pneumatic conveying of bulk solids” courses sponsored four times per year by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Continuing Education Program. Eric has presented bulk material and pneumatic conveying technology at over 300 training events world-wide. He has designed more than 750 bulk material handling and conveying systems for various powders and bulk solids, with a special focus on the cement, power, and mining industries. Mr. Maynard is responsible for internal training of engineers at Jenike & Johanson. Eric has particular interest in crushing technologies for minerals, as well as in the safety aspects of dust explosions and powder electrostatics. He has received certified training on dust hazards analysis (DHA; per NFPA 652 chapter 7 requirements) and can perform inspections on the unique hazards with combustible dusts such as foods, plastics, metal powders, and agricultural materials/wood. He is a member of ASME, AIChE, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Eric received his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Villanova University and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
