Intensive training for effective design and troubleshooting for handling bulk solids in silos, stockpiles, feeders.
This course provides participants with a thorough review of basic principles and practices for selection of bulk material equipment and handling systems.
The course starts with an overview of bulk
material handling considerations, including the important discussion of key material properties required for effective equipment/system selection and design. An emphasis is made upon mining and mineral materials, such as coal, iron ore, bauxite, and ores that are routinely handled in Australia.
A review of bulk material flow fundamentals will be presented, including common flow problems, types of flow patterns in storage equipment, including silos, bins, and stockpiles. Feeder selection is discussed, with an emphasis on applications involving high tonnage rates and abrasive bulk materials.
