Three-Part Online Agglomeration Training Series Announced

January 4, 2011

Offered by The Center for Professional Advancement (CfPA), this training series is intended for professionals in fields such as pharmaceuticals, specialty chemical processing, mineral operations, food processing, animal feeds, fertilizers, candies, cement, and biochemical.

Engineers and scientists who are employed in these industries and who are involved with agglomeration would benefit from this course. The novice will be quickly brought "up to speed" and the expert will be exposed to a detailed review of the subjects.

Agglomeration I: A Practical Approach to Particle Size Enlargement
January 12, 2011, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (EST)

Agglomeration and size enlargement are important processes used in many areas involving solids processing, fines processing and handling, solids transport, storage, and feeding. Applications of agglomeration and size enlargement are important factors to many facets in industry.

This session will provide an in-depth introduction to agglomeration including a clear overview of the principles of agglomeration.

Upon completion of this training, you will be able to:
* Explain the basic concepts and theory of agglomeration
* Outline the basics of the agglomeration processes and their advantages
* Describe the basics of tumble agglomeration and pressure agglomeration

Agglomeration II: Tumble Agglomeration Basics
January 26, 2011, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (EST)

This session offers a clear overview of the principles of tumble agglomeration and mixing agglomeration, and includes discussions on binders and screening.

Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to:
* Explain the basic concepts and theory of tumble and mixing agglomeration
* Describe the tumble and mixing agglomeration processes and their advantages, their equipment, and their operations
* Explain the use of binders and screening that support tumble and mixing agglomeration

Agglomeration III: Press & Pressure Agglomeration Basics
February 9, 2011, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (EST)

A clear overview of the principles and equipment used in press and pressure agglomeration will be given with discussions on the machines used for press and pressure agglomeration, the processes involved in roll press operations, and details on briquetting, extrusion, and pelleting techniques.

Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to:
* Explain the basic concepts and theory of press & pressure agglomeration
* Describe press & pressure agglomeration terms such as compaction, die pressing, reciprocating machines, rotary machines, die design, lubricants
* Explain the mechanisms of roll presses and double roll presses including feeding, densification, gap characteristics
* Provide a review of briquetting machines, extrusion and pelleting machines, and their operation
