Flow of Solids in Bins, Hoppers, Chutes and Feeders

Course ID: 
CH032
Course Type: 
Instructor-led (classroom) Course
Course Length: 
2 Days

Too often, bulk solids are being handled without a good understanding of how to correctly design, select, troubleshoot, maintain and purchase bulk solids handling equipment.

As a result, costly flow problems occur that slow production. In this course, you’ll learn proven design and troubleshooting principles for handling bulk solids in bins, hoppers, feeders and transfer chutes for safe and trouble-free plant operation.  
 

Ensure equipment operates efficiently, safely and reliably

 
In two days, you’ll review the fundamentals of bulk material flow and examine common flow problems, types of flow patterns in equipment and how flow properties of bulk solids are measured. You’ll consider feeder design, learn proven troubleshooting techniques and gain insight into flow problems that occur when handling fine powders. The instructor also covers common mechanisms of segregation and solutions to these costly problems and gives practical advice for using flow aid devices.
 
Throughout the course, real-life industrial case histories illustrate the complex concepts you’ll learn. In addition, workshops help increase your understanding of the theory and application.
