Jenike & Johanson Offers Bulk Solids Handling Course in India

September 15, 2008
Jenike & Johanson engineers will be presenting their bulk solids handling course in Mumbai, India on November 17–18 and Chennai, India on November 20–21.

The training will include discussion of hopper flow patterns, testing of powder flow properties and their relation to bin design, feeder design principles, handling of fine powders and fluidization, segregation of bulk solids, transfer chute design, and the proper use of flow aids.

Proper training of personnel involved in solids handling and processing is essential to operating an efficient and reliable bulk solids handling system. Since the theory of bulk solids handling is seldom a part of formal engineering training, many in industry lack an understanding of why solids handling problems occur and what practical steps can be taken to diagnose, alleviate, or prevent them. Training helps to foster greater awareness of operating efficiency, safety, and process improvement, along with an understanding of the reasoning behind required equipment modifications or upgrades.

The course fee is $1050 (U.S.) and registration is made entirely through Talec Engineers, Ajay Baliga (intsys@rediffmail.com; phone 022-28483198).
