Measurement of the Behavioural Properties of Powders
Measurement of the Properties and Bulk Behaviour of Particulate Materials
Short course: 28 - 29 June 2016 ( two days)
This course is designed to give delegates an overview of various methods for determining the bulk behaviour of powder and granular particulates. It includes laboratory demonstrations using selected methods covered by the course.
The range of measurement techniques covered by the presenters will:
Introduce relevance to real-world industrial scenarios
Describe how the particular technique works and support this through laboratory demonstration, if appropriate
You will learn about:
Particle size measurement techniques
Particle Density (solid and bulk)
Flow property measurements
Propensity for Segregation/de-blending
Degradation/friability of bulk through handling systems
Caking/agglomeration of bulk materials in storage
Pneumatic conveying properties
Is this for me?
Plant operators and designers, plant managers and maintenance personnel will all benefit enormously from attending this course, through improving their understanding of the behaviour of powders to learning techniques to overcome the problems encountered.
The course will be of great interest to personnel that are new to materials handling, or require an update on the subject.
This course is delivered on the University of Greenwich Medway campus, in the Short Course Centre, Chatham Maritime, Kent.
The course leader is Richard Farnish, Consultant Engineer, with nearly 20 yearsí experience in commercial design work related to materials handling
Also contributing will be Mike Bradley, Professor of Bulk and Particulate Technologies and Director of The Wolfson Centre. He has worked internationally on design and troubleshooting of bulk solids handling as a commercial consultant and research expert for over twenty years
and Dr Rob Berry, a Research Fellow with several yearsí experience in bulk solids handling technology.
Please note that The Wolfson Centre reserves the right to substitute leaders of equal quality should this be dictated by circumstances beyond their control.
