Webinars/Online Events

- Developing a Comprehensive Combustible Dust Safety Program

- Available on demand on April 24th. Register here for the archived webinar.

- Kevin Jeffries, vice president/combustible dust consultant, Lewellyn Technology, expert will discuss how to get help identifying the elements of a comprehensive combustible dust program including, but not limited to, the wide range of engineering and administrative options for risk mitigation. Learn about regulatory and consensus standards designed to help build the compliance framework for your combustible dust program.

- This free, hour-long webinar is moderated by Powder & Bulk Solids Editor-in-Chief, Kevin Cronin.

- How to Minimize Unplanned Downtime & Lost Production in Baghouse Operations

- View the archived event here. 

- Kyle Nannenga, strategic accounts manager/industrial filtration expert will discuss how to reduce planned and unplanned downtime, how to improve baghouse performance, enhance environmental health and safety of employees, and how to realize the potential for significant cost savings. Plant operations managers, plant maintenance managers, environmental safety engineers, manufacturing/production engineers, plant purchasing managers, and plant owners are invited to attend.
- This free, hour-long webinar is moderated by Powder & Bulk Solids Managing Editor, Joe Florkowski.

- Solving Moisture Problems in Powders

- View the archived event here. 
- Brady Carter, research scientist with Aqua Lab by Decagon will speak and the webinar will be useful to anyone striving to control or improve the stability of powders. This webinar will explain the difference between water activity and moisture content and define a moisture sorption isotherm. It will also highlight the moisture sorption properties of several different powders and show how moisture sorption can be used to determine hygroscopisity, find the critical humidity for glass transition, observe crystallization, predict moisture migration, and determine shelf life in package.
- This free, hour-long webinar is moderated by Powder & Bulk Solids Managing Editor, Joe Florkowski and is sponsored by Aqua Lab by Decagon.    

- 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.
