Is it possible to predict segregation in large-scale industrial silos?
Presenter: Dr. Susantha (Jeff) Dissanayake
Predicting segregation is important to reduce sudden peaks of fines when unloading silos. Jeff, in collaboration with experts from the Wolfson Center for Bulk Solid Handling Technology, recently developed cellular automata (CA)-based modeling to predict segregation in industrial hoppers and silos. Early results showed promising results. This session will discuss this technique and research conducted in the industry.
Prediction of bulk flow properties using a mechanical surface energy tester.
Presenter: Dr. Vivek Garg
Measurement of forces between particles and surfaces in cohesive powders
The webinar will focus on elucidating a unique testing technique to measure forces between particles and surfaces using cohesive powders in a mechanical surface energy tester developed by Vivek in collaboration with experts from the Wolfson Center for Bulk Solids Handling Technology at the University of Greenwich. The technique focuses on the prediction of powder flow function using this novel technique in conjunction with common particle attributes, with the aim of predicting flowability problems at an early stage of formulation using only a small amount of powder sample. This session will discuss this technique and research conducted in the industry.
Use of simulation models to help identify areas of high dust concentration.
Presenter: Dr. Stefan Zigan
Is your factory exposed to a dust explosion hazard?
Industries handling biomass such as wood pellets should consider strategies to avoid the concentration and accumulation of fine particles (smaller than 40 microns) in their handling and storage equipment that could cause dust explosions.
In this session, we share our experience in setting up experiments with the aim of calibrating and validating simulation models to identify areas with high dust concentrations in handling and storage equipment. We also discuss strategies and challenges faced by practitioners.
We look forward to welcoming you to one or more webinars.
Feel free to share these events with your colleagues so they can register.
