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.
