Electrostatics: erratic, unpredictable and dangerous
Effects of electrostatics in bulk materials handling. When handling powders and particulates, you may have experienced the generation of electrostatic charges causing unwanted cohesion or adhesion of materials. This may have then resulted in difficulties such as particle agglomeration, segregation, material build-up on equipment or ignition causing explosions. To help industry understand the reasons for this occurrence experts at the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology have pooled their knowledge and experience to deliver a one day short course which discusses how and why this happens, the resulting hazards, and possible solutions to reduce the risk of repetition. Split into 3 sessions, the following topics will be dealt with during the course of the day.

Does Electrostatic Charging cause problems with your Powder handling?
Short Courses in April. If you would like to learn more about the causes and effects of Electrostatic charging in Powders, you would benefit from attending the one day short course at the University of Greenwich in Kent, UK. Course date: 16 April 2013. Electrostatic charges generated during industrial powder handling processes may give rise to unwanted particle cohesion or adhesion, which in turn results in difficulties such as particle agglomeration, segregation, material build-up on equipment and ignition of explosion, etc. Its impact is felt in terms of lower production yields and increased process downtime, or high risks to safety in manufacture. The course discusses the causes and effect of electrostatic charge in bulk solids handling, and the hazards caused to product quality control and risk assessment. Topics include: o Influences of electrostatic charge on physical properties of powders o Charge hazards in material handling processes o Evaluation and measurement techniques
