On Wednesday, February 15, 2023, at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific, Eric Maynard, vice president, Jenike & Johanson, will present “Break it Down! How to Effectively Choose Size Reduction Equipment” as part of Powder & Bulk Solids' DryPro webinar series.

Comminution, which is the process of reducing the size of particles, can be complex. There are many types of equipment that can crush, grind, and mill bulk solids and powders, yet there is no universal machine that can do it all - and that is not even necessary in most cases. This webinar will help the attendee to understand the basic mechanisms of particle breakage, along with common technologies that impart the critical forces needed for effective comminution. Key pitfalls are also discussed to educate the attendee on this complex subject matter.

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.
