My Pneumatic Conveying Line is Not Performing- What Can I Do?
Eric Maynard, vice president, Jenike & Johanson

On Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific, Eric Maynard, vice president, Jenike & Johanson, will present "My Pneumatic Conveying Line is Not Performing as Needed - What Can I Do?" as part of Powder & Bulk Solids’ 2020 DryPro Webinar Series, taking place June 2-4, 2020.

Moving powders and bulk solids with air or gas has its challenges. In some cases, difficulties with line plugging, wear, particle damage, or rate restrictions can occur. Solving these problems can be costly if a trial-and-error approach is taken. The purpose of this webinar is to review the causes of common difficulties and to provide a pathway to solutions. This session will:

  • Cover pneumatic conveying difficulties

  • Review basics of system operation, whether dilute or dense phase transport

  • Learn about ways to reduce or solve problems

Maynard received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Villanova University and his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. During his 23 years at Jenike & Johanson, he has designed handling systems for bulk solids including cement, coal, limestone, plastic powder, food products, and pharmaceuticals. He is the cement industry specialist at Jenike & Johanson, as well as the technical specialist for dust explosions and powder electrostatic behavior. He routinely lectures on the storage, flow, and pneumatic conveying of bulk solids for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) continuing education series, private companies, in-house courses, and the Powder & Bulk Solids Conference.
