Jenike & Johanson to Present Solids Handling and Pneumatic Transport Course in Brazil

August 24, 2009
Jenike & Johanson engineers will be presenting their popular bulk solids handling and pneumatic transport course in São Paulo, Brazil October 1-2. The training will include discussion of hopper flow patterns, testing of powder flow properties and their relation to silo and hopper design, feeder design principles, handling of fine powders and fluidization, segregation of bulk solids, transfer chute design, and the proper use of flow aids. The second day will include a discussion of the fundamentals of pneumatic transport and how to troubleshoot and solve problems with a poorly operating pneumatic conveying system.

Proper training of personnel involved in solids handling and processing is essential to operating a safe, 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.
