Design of Equipment for Storing and Discharging Bulk Solids
Overview: Understanding the storage and handling requirements of bulk materials when drawing up specifications and designing hoppers and silos is of fundamental importance for the optimal operation of the plant. This course guides delegates through Best Practice to ensure the full potential is reached. Subjects covered: •Minimising project risk through characterisation of bulk materials; •How to characterise bulk materials using firmly established methods and the latest test equipment; •How to use shear cell measurements to design for reliable discharge; •Detail design for storage equipment; •Best Practice for bulk handling plant design and operation; •When should discharge aids be applied and appropriate types; •Methods for correct interfacing. Course fee: 825 per delegate Venue: Chatham, Kent This course is delivered in English.

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
