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.

7 – 9 March 2017: Storage and Discharge of Powders and Bulk Materials
This course includes an optional 3rd day in the on-site laboratories in Chatham.

25 – 26 April 2017: Advanced course: Design of Equipment for Storing and Discharging Bulk Materials

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

Course fees: £765 for each 2 day course / £1185 to include the practical session
