On Wednesday, December 7, 2022 at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific, Eric Maynard, vice president, Jenike & Johanson, will present "Go with the Flow! You May Have Storage, But Will You Have Reliable Flow?" as part of Powder & Bulk Solids' DryPro webinar series.
Many storage systems do an acceptable job of storing powders and bulk solids, but they may not always ensure reliable flow and discharge. This webinar explains the important concepts for flow problems that can prevent reliable flow, as well as methods to ensure consistent material discharge.
Attend this webinar to learn:
- Common types of storage systems like silos, bins, stockpiles
- Differences between storage and flow
- What causes common flow and discharge problems
- Solution approaches to either avoid or solve problems
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.
