On Wednesday, May 7, at the International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference in Rosemont, IL, Mark Jones, PhD, director of TUNRA Bulk Solids Handling Research, professor of engineering & built environment, University of Newcastle, will lead Understanding Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying – When to Use it and When Not to, a fundamental Technical Workshop from 10:15-11:45.
“Dense-phase pneumatic conveying is frequently misunderstood,” says Jones. “The workshop will identify the key elements required for reliable dense-phase conveying. It will provide methods to assess bulk materials for their suitability for dense-phase conveying and look at applications where the risk of using dense phase is very small compared with cases where the use of dense-phase would pose a very significant risk.”
Dense-phase conveying can be extremely attractive in many applications, leading to reduced power requirement and overcoming many operational problems. However, there are many applications where dense-phase is just not suitable. This session will look at these issues and provide advice on when to use dense-phase technology and when to steer clear of it.
