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.

Short courses on the Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Materials

Hoppers, silos, bins and bunkers are widely used in industry for storing bulk solids materials. To ensure regular discharge from these storage systems, it is important to understand the flow characteristics of the materials being handled, and to ensure that the bins have been designed accordingly.

Attendance on the following 2 courses will help delegates gain the knowledge to do just this.

Basic course:  Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Materials
15 - 17 March 2016
This course includes an optional 3rd day in the on-site laboratories in Chatham.

Advanced course: Design of Equipment for Storing and Discharging Bulk Materials
26 – 27 April 2016


Course fees will be reduced for delegates attending (or who have previously attended) the basic course first.

If you are a plant designer, plant manager or work in maintenance, these courses will improve your ability to deal with the design and troubleshooting of plants.


Full details on both courses and on-line booking is available here
