On Wednesday, December 13, 2023, at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific, Eric Maynard, vice president, Jenike & Johanson, will present “How Do I Choose Between a Silo Fabricated from Metal or Concrete?” as part of Powder & Bulk Solids' DryPro webinar series.
This webinar explains factors that consider selection for silos fabricated from metal or concrete. Both types of construction are used throughout the world, though in some applications one type of construction is preferred over the other. Coverage of material-induced loading, discharge arrangements, and bulk solids considerations will all be presented.
Maynard received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Villanova University and his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. During his 27 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. Maynard is also a subject matter specialist on multiple National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) combustible dust explosion committees, including 652, 654, and the pending 660, which is the combination of several of the combustible dust standards into one standard. 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.
