Flow of Bulk Solids

In this one-day course, participants will gain a strong, fundamental understanding of bulk solids and their behavior, along with the general principles and practical applications of material flow. Participants will find out how and why typical bulk material flow problems occur, and what simple, practical steps can be taken to solve them.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Cover a wide range of equipment types and the solutions to flow problems commonly associated with each of them
  • Gain a better understanding of how wall friction, cohesive strength, compressibility, permeability, and other properties affect the flow of solids through various types of feeders, blenders, chutes, bins, and hoppers
  • See how to specify and select hardware best suited to various bulk solid flow problems and objectives; including how to retrofit equipment to correct flow problems.
  • Solve flow problems involving lost production, plant downtime, extra labor, poor quality control, wasted material, and unreliable equipment.

Who Should Attend

Design, project, formulation and research engineers, as well as any plant operation personnel who are responsible for solving and preventing flow problems or purchasing powder and bulk solids handling equipment.
