Attend this course to effectively arm yourself with a solid working knowledge of identifying & troubleshooting common transfer chute problems such as plugging, wear, spillage & dusting.
Implement proven solution methods required for reliable transfer chute operation
This course provides participants with an overview of transfer chute problems and their costly implications, along with an introduction to general design principles required to have effective chute operation.
Basic chute components are reviewed so that a complete understanding of the transfer chute system is achieved. Bulk material flow properties required for chute design are presented, as well as discussion of key chute design inputs.
Review of material stream trajectory calculations is covered, as well as estimation of chute capacity assuming throughput requirements and stream velocity. Example chute designs are reviewed, especially in cases where DEM technology has been effectively utilised to solve or prevent chute problems.
