- Solving Moisture Problems in Powders
- DryPro 2014 Webcast Series - Air and Particle Flow in Pipelines
- View the archived event here.
- This webinar was moderated by Powder & Bulk Solids Editor-in-Chief Kevin Cronin. David Mills, pneumatic conveying consultant, reviewed pneumatic conveying from a rather different viewpoint. The webinar explained how particles flow and why pipelines block, why it is so easy to convey vertically up, and why upward inclined pipelines should be avoided.
-The fundamentals about dilute phase conveying and low velocity dense phase conveying were explained, together with everything users needed to know about conveying air velocity to keep the material moving in any mode of flow, with the minimum power requirements. Bends (or is it elbows?) that are so convenient, yet so problematical, were dealt with in detail, as is the need for stepped pipelines for high pressure and high vacuum systems. A particular feature of the lecture is the highlighting of some of the problematic areas that exist in pneumatic conveying with pipeline layouts, material feeding and ‘difficult’ materials.
- DryPro 2014 Webcast Series - Reducing the Risk of Dust Explosions by Controlling Electrical Ignition Sources
- View the archived event here to view this free webinar.
- This webinar is moderated by Powder & Bulk Solids Editor-in-Chief Kevin Cronin.
- Justin Bishop, Ph.D., P.E., CFEI, managing engineer with Exponent Failure Analysis Associates will talk about how dust explosions are a potential hazard in bulk solid manufacturing and process facilities. Electrical ignition sources are routinely identified as a possible cause during dust explosion investigations. Attend this webinar to learn about:
Selecting the correct electrical equipment for dusty environments, and why the installation of the equipment must be directed by the manufacturer.
Applicable national codes and standards information you need for guidance when selecting electrical equipment.
Real world examples of appropriate and inappropriate electrical equipment installations.
