The Wolfson Centre, part of the School of Engineering at the University of Greenwich, is running a programme of Short Courses throughout 2011 designed to attract engineers from Industry in the area of Bulk Solids Handling. In the past we have welcomed delegates from all over the world and from a variety of industries, particularly pharmaceuticals, food processing, mining, ceramics, power generation, plastics, chemicals and recycling, to name but a few. They are aimed at managers, skilled operatives and maintenance crew or anyone involved in the handling, processing and storage of powders and bulk solids, including manufacturers of such machinery. The course/s content includes, amongst other topics, the basics of operation of powder and bulk solids handling equipment, understanding materials, causes and solutions to common problems, design and selection of plant components. Our courses aim to provide delegates with the knowledge to identify bulk solids handling problems and to teach them the techniques to overcome them.
Course fees include the course handbook with copies of the presentations, refreshments and a course dinner after Day 1 (where the course is 2 days in length)
Many of these courses will feature demonstrations of the new Powder Flow Tester, ideal for manufacturers who process powders daily and want to minimize or eliminate the downtime and expense that occur when hoppers/silos fail to discharge. With the new Powder Flow Tester customers can also perform Quality Control checks on incoming materials, quickly characterize new formulations for flowability and adjust composition to match the flow behaviour of established products.
In order to allow individual attention, numbers on the courses are limited. Early registration is recommended.
On-line booking, along with further information on these courses, is available from www.bulksolids.com. To contact the centre email Wolfsonemail@example.com. A discount of 5% is available for 3 delegates booking onto the same course from the same company at the same time.
In-company courses can be arranged to cater for larger numbers or a variation of topics. Please call us for details.
