On Wednesday, November 9, 2022 at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific, Todd Smith, business and strategy manager, and Kevin Solofra, lab manager, Kansas State University’s Bulk Solids Innovation Center, will present "An Explanation of the Various Types of Pneumatic Conveying" as part of Powder & Bulk Solids' DryPro webinar series.

There are many types of pneumatic conveying systems. This webinar will describe each method and explain which one to use in various applications. It will explain both vacuum and pressure pneumatic conveying systems, as well as dilute phase (high velocity) and dense phase (low velocity) systems. The advantages and disadvantages, as well as do’s and don’ts, will be discussed for each method.

Attendees of this webinar will learn:

  • Dilute phase (high velocity) pneumatic conveying

  • Other major variations

  • Dense phase (slow velocity) conveying

  • Material properties testing necessary for pneumatic conveying design

  • How to choose which type is best for your application

Smith has helped lead Kansas State University’s Bulk Solids Innovation Center since 2019. KSU-BSIC is the only university-based facility and staff in North America dedicated to helping industry with powder and bulk solids challenges. Smith spent 38 years in the bulk solids industry, first at DuPont, then as engineering manager at MAC Equipment (now Schenck Process), and then general manager of Coperion K-Tron Salina and vice president of the company’s Global Systems Group. 

Solofra is the lab manager for Kansas State University’s Bulk Solids Innovation Center. After earning his BS and MS in Ceramic Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla (now Missouri S&T), he has spent 25 years in research, industry, and manufacturing.
