On Tuesday May 11, 2021 at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific, Eric Maynard, vice president, Jenike & Johanson, will present "Proven Solutions to Four Common Problems in Pneumatic Conveying System Operations" as part of Powder & Bulk Solids' DryPro webinar series.
Many powders and bulk solids present costly problems in pneumatic conveying systems. Issues such as abrasive wear, line plugging, particle attrition, and throughput limitations can impact operational efficiency, safety, and maintenance needs. This webinar will help the attendee learn about causes of these problems and what typical measures can be put in place to reduce or eliminate their effects.
Attend this webinar and learn:
- Learn about pros/cons with pneumatic conveying vs. mechanical conveying
- Understand fundamental reasons for wear and particle attrition in conveying lines
- Determine causes for line plugging
Maynard received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Villanova University and his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. During his 25 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.
