In depth exploration of detailed calculations for design of pneumatic conveying pipelines and specifying plantThe ultimate aim will be to share the most up-to-date knowledge on how to obtain pipeline designs that work reliably, delivering the required throughput efficiently and effectively without impacting on quality of the powder being handled. 

Subjects covered include: 

  • Lean versus dense phase – relative advantages in practical application, and applicability to different materials; 
  • A detailed look at obtaining conveying information for the material to be handled, and how to scale this up for pipeline design; 
  • Different equations for predicting pipeline pressure drop and throughput; 
  • Stepped bore pipelines – how they enhance system performance and reduce problems, and how to design them; 
  • Differences in powder behaviour; 
  • A detailed look at bends; radius, pressure drop, wear, particle damage and material build-up; 
  • Air humidity effects – psychrometry and moisture calculations, and controlling interaction or airborne moisture with the powder; 
  • Practical details – choice of coupling systems, pipe specification systems etc; 

The course enables plant designers, plant managers or maintenance to improve their ability to deal with the design and troubleshooting of pneumatic conveying systems.
