On Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific, Eric Maynard, vice president, Jenike & Johanson, will present "Key Considerations to Develop a Basis of Design for an Effective Bulk Material Storage System" as part of Powder & Bulk Solids' DryPro webinar series.
Selecting storage and handling equipment for powders and bulk solids can be challenging without a general knowledge of key factors that can affect the selection and design of a silo. This webinar will review considerations for development of a basis of design document that can be shared with equipment vendors to ensure they know parameters required for your operational success.
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.
