Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Solids

Course

Overview: Facilities storing bulk solid materials sometimes experience operational problems – often because they have been designed without knowledge of the flow characteristics of the material to be stored. This course advises on preventing such problems.

Subjects covered:
• An introduction to the storage and flow of bulk solid materials in hoppers, bins and bunkers
• Determining the flow properties of bulk solids
• Determination of hopper geometry
• Predicting discharge rates
• Feeders and feeding
• Hopper discharge aids
• Prediction of wall loadings and their effect on structural design
• Discussion/troubleshooting period

Course fee: £825 / £1260 per delegate
Venue: Chatham, Kent

Do your bulk materials experience discharge problems? Come on our short courses to learn how to solve these problems.
Do your bulk materials experience discharge problems?
Come on our short courses to learn how to solve these problems. Hoppers, silos, bins and bunkers are widely used in industry for storing bulk solids materials. To ensure regular discharge from these storage systems, it is important to understand the flow characteristics of the materials being handled, and to ensure that the bins have been designed accordingly. Attendance on the following 2 courses will help delegates gain the knowledge to do just this. Basic course: Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Materials 15 - 17 March 2016 This course includes an optional 3rd day in the on-site laboratories in Chatham. Advanced course: Design of Equipment for Storing and Discharging Bulk Materials 26 – 27 April 2016
