On line Short Course Biomass Operations and Handling Technology
Delegates will learn the basics of: Biomass macro-economics, subsidies and potential; Material types, flow properties and handling equipment requirements; Self-heating, fire, explosion and safety; Dust and degradation, pneumatic conveying and wear. Case studies are used to illustrate the presentations where applicable, and substantial discussion periods are included to permit the analysis of specific problems experienced by attendees. Is this for me? Engineers, maintenance personnel, managers and procurement executives with responsibility for obtaining and operating equipment for handling of biomass either alone or mixed with coal, in solid-fuel-fired power stations. Manufacturers of said equipment could also benefit by attending. The course is held over 5 x 3 hour sessions. All sessions need to be attended to complete the course.

Course Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Solids
Overview: Facilities storing bulk solid materials sometimes experience operational problems – often because they have been designed without knowledge of the flow characteristics of the material to be stored. This course advises on preventing such problems. Subjects covered: * An introduction to the storage and flow of bulk solid materials in hoppers, bins and bunkers * Determining the flow properties of bulk solids * Determination of hopper geometry * Predicting discharge rates * Feeders and feeding * Hopper discharge aids * Prediction of wall loadings and their effect on structural design * Discussion/troubleshooting period Course fee: £675 per delegate The course will delivered in English over 5 x 3 hour sessions

Bulk Materials Handling in Ports and at Sea
The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology at the University of Greenwich offers short courses about safe transportation of bulk materials in ports and at sea. The issues surrounding the safe handling and storage of bulk materials at port and at sea is examined during 2 on-line short courses; one looking at general safety issues, the other concentrating on the difficulties encountered when handling and transporting biomass materials. We invite you to attend. Port and Terminal Operations for Bulk Cargoes 8 - 11 March; This course, delivered in association with ABTO: Association of Bulk Terminal Operators, will take a look at the issues surrounding the safe handling and storage of bulk materials in ports and on the sea. Delegates are given the chance to discuss real life issues and to determine best practice for future developments. Subject areas covered include: * Ship unloading technologies (Grabs vs CSUs, different CSU technologies) * Conveying technologies (pneumatic vs belt) * Storage and discharge technologies (silos, flat stores, stacking etc) * Loading/unloading control (weighing, controlling ship bending etc) *

On line learning; Pneumatic Conveying of Powders and Bulk Materials Short Course; 6 - 12 January
On line learning; Pneumatic Conveying of Powders and Bulk Materials
Short Course; 6 - 12 January An intensive course looking at the components of pneumatic conveying systems, system selection and design techniques. Day 1: Introduction to pneumatic conveying / Components Day 2: System design / Economic design Day 3: Interfacing / Explosion hazards / ATEX-DSEAR Day 4: Operation and control of blow tanks / Blow tanks and transport Day 5: Uprating systems / Case studies Each session will include time to discuss operational issues with the presenter and other delegates. A previous delegate said of the course: This course demonstrated to me that an appropriate scientific approach can help to understand this art of pneumatic transport. I recommend this training to engineers who want to tackle powder conveying problems (design and operation) in their factory. Should I attend? If you are a plant designer, plant manager or work in maintenance, this course will improve your ability to deal with the design and troubleshooting of plants. You’ll also benefit

PHD Studentship Sponsored by Schenck Process UK Ltd Join a study into Improving the efficiencies of manufacturing through the implementation of digital systems in pneumatic conveying pipelines
PHD Studentship Sponsored by Schenck Process UK Ltd
Join a study into Improving the efficiencies of manufacturing through the implementation of digital systems in pneumatic conveying pipelines Experts at the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology, University of Greenwich, UK have joined forces with Industry giants Schenck Process UK Ltd to offer a fully paid 3 year studentship to look at how the digitalisation of pneumatic conveying systems can help improve the manufacturing process. Constantly pro-active or re-active “Industry 4.0” is a defined term indicating the ability of a process to be constantly pro-active or re-active in response to the process conditions or material characteristics, as opposed to the traditional approach of commissioning at a set point and left to operate with the same settings or occasionally reset by the process supervisor. Pneumatic conveying The key application here is pneumatic conveying, the transport of particles through a pipeline by a gas flow. This is universally applied to in-plant transport of particles between process steps in the power, cement, minerals, food, pharmaceuticals, petro-chem, fines
