Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Solids - April-2013

Although many pneumatic conveying equipment advances have been made, costly problems – including wear, attrition, rate limitation and line plugging – continue to occur.

Learn how to apply practical design and troubleshooting principles to improve the efficiency, safety and reliability of pneumatic conveying systems transporting powders and bulk solids.

Ensure trouble-free flow

In one day, you’ll review the fundamentals of gas/solids flow and address common pneumatic conveying problems, modes of transport in a pipeline and scale-model tests and their use in designing and evaluating poorly operating systems. You’ll discuss line chargers (feeders), proven pipeline layout rules and criteria for elbow/bend selection. The instructor also will cover more specialized topics including dense phase conveying systems and gas/solids separators such as cyclones, filters and bag houses.

Real-life industrial case histories will help increase your understanding of the theory and application taught.
