On Tuesday, February 15, 2022 at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific, Eric Maynard, vice president, Jenike & Johanson, will present "Expand Your Knowledge of Size Reduction Technologies" as part of Powder & Bulk Solids' DryPro webinar series.
Reducing the size of bulk solids can be tricky depending upon the size and characteristics of the material to be processed. Some solids require high impact forces to break them apart, while others may need shearing forces to accomplish size reduction. This webinar will review basic considerations for size reduction technology selection and cover common pitfalls to help you avoid selecting equipment that may not be suitable for your processing needs.
Attendees will learn about mechanisms for particle size reduction, discover key factors that should be considered when selecting a size reduction process, and learn more about features and suitabilities of various size reduction machines.
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.
