Although many pneumatic conveying equipment advances have been made, costly problems – including wear, attrition, rate limitation and line plugging – continue to occur.
Ensure trouble-free flow
Here’s a preview of what you’ll learn:
- Modes of conveying: Dilute phase and dense phase
- Types of systems: Positive pressure, vacuum, pull/push and closed loop
- The science underlying gas and solids flow through pipelines
- Understand key terms – like “saltation and pickup velocity” and “solids loading ratio”
- How to read a state diagram illustrating system performance
- The four primary system components: Gas mover, silo/feeder, pipeline/bends and separator
- How to select elbows, line chargers and other key primary system components
- Know the features of solid separators – cyclones, filter/collectors and bag house
- Dense phase conveying technology – what you need to know
- Troubleshooting common conveying problems – including wear, attrition, rate limitation and line plugging
- Applying safe handling practices for the pneumatic conveying of combustible solids
You should attend if …
- Plant and project managers
- Operation and process managers
- Project, process and maintenance engineers
- Unit operators and superintendents
- Professionals new to the field of pneumatic conveying
