Informa Exhibitions Ltd regrets to announce the closure of Solids & Bulk Handling magazine.

Solids & Bulk Handling magazine has been affected by the ongoing downward trend of on-the-page marketing spend. This combined with the economic pressures that the loose and solids handling industry face has ultimately led to the sad and difficult decision to cease publishing the magazine.

The November/December 2017 issue of Solids & Bulk Handling will be its last edition.


Quality in Powder Handling short course January 05, 2011

For the first time we will be featuring the new Brookfield Powder Flow Tester, a small piece of equipment designed for manufacturers who process powders daily and want to minimize or eliminate the downtime and expense that occur when hoppers/silos fail to discharge. 

Prof Mike  Bradley and Dr Rob Berry, our course presenters, led the development team of industrial specialists to trial the invention which is now on sale around the world.

Other topics to be covered on this one day course include:

  • Correct design of equipment to minimise segregation (de-mixing) effects;
  • Handling of materials to reduce particle breakage and dust generation;
  • Approaches to minimising caking of material;
  • Re-design of particulate materials to make them less prone to these problems;

If you handle powders in your line of work, or if you manufacture equipment for the handling or storage of powders, you will find this course most useful.
