Commissioning and Troubleshooting Pneumatic Conveying System
Overview: Delegates will look at the setting up and commissioning of pneumatic conveying systems. This course is a ’Hands on’ fully practical session using the pneumatic conveying lines and rotary valves in the on-site laboratories in Chatham. Subjects covered: •The practical challenge of starting up systems on site and making sure they work as the designer intended; •Understand the key signals to look out for that tell you how the system is operating; •Avoiding pitfalls that can lead to slow start up, blockages etc; •How to know when the system is operating as intended; •Ensuring the system is optimised around the users priority requirements eg. minimum energy usage/ particle blockage / system wear; •It also covers lean and dense phase, rotary valves, blow tanks and various air supply types Course fee: £825 per delegate Venue: Chatham, Kent Contact: Caroline Chapman

Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Solids
Pneumatisch transport van bulkgoed De diverse aspecten van pneumatisch transportsystemen, systeem keuze criteria en ontwerptechnieken worden tijdens deze cursus behandeld. De cursus is speciaal ontwikkeld voor ingenieurs, fabrieksmanagers, ervaren operators en systeemleveranciers op het gebied van poeders en bulkgoed. De cursus bestaat uit een twee daagse theorie/discussie sessie en eventueel een derde dag in het onderzoekscentrum met praktische opdrachten en demonstraties. De kosten voor deze cursus bedragen £825 voor de twee daagse sessie en £1260 voor de volle drie dagen. De voertaal tijdens de cursus is Engels. De twee daagse sessie is ook beschikbaar als een in-house training

Rotary Valves: Design, Selection and Operational Issues
Rotary valves are widely used to feed pneumatic conveying pipelines, and for feed metering, explosion isolation, atmospheric isolation etc. However there are a multitude of combinations of different feature options available covering choice of materials of construction, rotor type, drive type, venting arrangements, bearing pattern, seal choice, clearances, cleaning features etc. Faced with this bewildering choice, how does an engineer decide what to specify? This course will help understand the reasons for the different options and how to choose them. Topics will include:- Application areas for rotary valves, and their different demands (feeding, explosion protection, isolation etc) Basics of rotary valve performance – air leakage, feed rate etc Materials of construction linked to issues of wear and build-up Seals and bearings, options, functions and selection Special consideration for explosion isolation ATEX requirements and responsibilities Features for cleaning and preventing contamination Venting – needs, options and ensuring success Review of practical application issues This will be a classroom-based course but using a selection of components of different patterns for illustration, and many case studies of failures and successes to demonstrate the importance of correct specification. The course is aimed at engineers, system designers, maintenance personnel who have responsibility for sourcing, specifying and keeping operational rotary valves in all industries. Course fees are £520 per person but discounted when attended in conjunction with the Advanced Course: Pneumatic Conveying System Design on 8 - 9 December 2020

Caking and Lump Formation in Powders and Bulk Materials On-line short course
Caking and Lump Formation in Powders and Bulk Materials
On-line short course 23 July; 9am – 2pm and 24 July; 9am – 12pm On-line delivery Join us for this on-line short course to discover why some bulk materials and powders can form lumps during storage. You will learn: •Occurrences of caking in processes: A discussion of the methods that can be useful in predicting or trouble shooting unintended agglomeration of bulk materials in industry •Types of caking and methods for laboratory evaluation: A review of the range of caking mechanisms that can occur in processes and options for quantifying the ‘strength’ of agglomerates. •Common plant and operational issues: A session focussing on how many types of caking problem are created or exacerbated by the use of some types of standard equipment for handling bulk solids. Common design mistakes are highlighted and the impact of these errors explored. Counter measures and design best practice is discussed. Course leader Richard Farnish has over 20 years’ experience dealing with the problems of caking

Safe handling and storage of bulk materials in ports and on the sea Short Course
Safe handling and storage of bulk materials in ports and on the sea
Short Course 10 - 11 March at The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology, Chatham Maritime, Kent UK Take a look at the issues surrounding the safe handling and storage of bulk materials in ports and on the sea. Delegates are given the chance to discuss real life issues and to determine best practice for future developments. 12 March: Optional practical session in the on-site Labs where delegates can test same cargoes under different conditions, to see the potential dangers presented at port by not knowing about the materials before handling/transporting them. Course presentations include: •Ship unloading technologies (Grabs vs CSUs, different CSU technologies) •Conveying technologies (pneumatic vs belt) •Storage and discharge technologies (silos, flat stores, stacking etc) •Loading/unloading control (weighing, controlling ship bending etc) •Rail and road outloading equipment and control •Explosion and fire risks and management (ATEX, fire control and management) •Mobile
