Course ID: CH033 Type: Public (classroom) CourseLanguage: English Skill Level: Intermediate Duration: 1 day CEUs: 0.80 PDHs: 8.00 Share This Post: Developed by: AIChE 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.
