The Advanced Manufacturing and Bulk Solids Technology Center at Kansas State's Olathe campus is now offering its popular pneumatic conveying courses to better serve industry.

 

Courses

Basics of Pneumatic Conveying provides a broad education about everything related to pneumatic conveying. Students receive an expert lecture about each topic, and then take part in hands-on demonstrations using working components and actual conveying systems.

Topics include:

  • How does pneumatic conveying work?

  • When is it appropriate, and when would a different type of conveying be better?

  • What are all the components and how do they work?

  • What is the difference between a pressure system and vacuum system, and what are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

  • Dilute phase, dense phase, medium phase, vacuum sequencing – which type is the right one for various applications?

Workers in engineering, maintenance, operations, service, and sales; and management personnel who need a basic understanding of pneumatic conveying should consider attending.

This is an in-person course over two full days. This course is offered at K-State Olathe campus (Olathe, KS) with lab demos at a local industry lab. An optional industry tour and dinner are included at the end of the first day.

The two-day courses are February 20-21, 2024 or March 26-27, 2024. Both run 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Register here for the February Basics of Pneumatic Conveying course or here for the March Basics of Conveying.

Advanced Pneumatic Conveying

If you already have the basics down, you might find this advanced course helpful. It provides a brief overview, and then dives into specifying, designing, and sizing a pneumatic conveying system.  It involves a combination of theory, calculations, and practical hands-on application.

Topics include:

  • Material properties, and how they affect system design

  • Detailed calculation for all types of dilute phase conveying

  • What to do when something changes, wears out, or doesn’t work

  • Troubleshooting

  • Handling difficult materials

  • When to use dense phase conveying, how it works, and how to troubleshoot

This is an in-person course across two full days. This course is offered at K-State Olathe with lab demos at a local industry lab. An optional industry tour and dinner are included at the end of the first day.

The three-day course is April 23-25, 2023. Register here for the Advanced Pneumatic Conveying course.
