Segregation, Degradation and Caking of bulk materials during transport and storage
Short course: 26 September 2013 (one day)
This is an intensive, one-day course designed to deal with issues relating to maintaining or improving product quality.
A large percentage of the consultancy work undertaken at the Wolfson Centre relates directly to the segregation, spoiling and/or solidifying of powders and particulates during their various handling, storage and discharge processes. In order to pass on this knowledge and expertise, the one day course on 'Segregation, Degradation and Caking' has been developed to provide process engineers with the information they need to predict and avoid the many common materials handling problems that cost the company valuable time and money.
- Maintaining and improving product quality
- Correct design of equipment to minimise segregation
- Handling and storage of materials to reduce degradation issues
- Approaches to minimise caking of material
This is a one-day course, with an emphasis on the practical aspects of technology. We begin with a comprehensive introduction to give a basic understanding of materials handling, before moving on to more detailed work.
We’ll use case studies throughout to illustrate the presentations, with plenty of discussion periods so that we can analyse any specific problems experienced by attendees.
Is this for me?
If you are a plant designer, plant manager or work in maintenance, this course will improve your ability to deal with the design and troubleshooting of plants.
You’ll also benefit if you are from operational staff or senior management through a better understanding of what can go wrong and how to make your plant as efficient and trouble-free as possible. The course is ideal for those new to materials handling, those who require an update on the subject, or those who need a working knowledge of a wide variety of materials handling technologies.
The course will be held at the University of Greenwich Medway Short Course Centre, Chatham Maritime, Kent
The course leader is Mike Bradley, Professor of Bulk and Particulate Technologies and Director of the Wolfson Centre. He has worked internationally on design and troubleshooting for bulk solids handling as a commercial consultant and research expert for over twenty years.
Also contributing will be Richard Farnish, Consultant Engineer, who has over ten years’ experience in commercial design work related to materials handling.
Please note that The Wolfson Centre reserves the right to substitute leaders of equal quality should this be dictated by circumstances beyond their control.
