Overview of Particulate Handling Technology

This is an intensive, two-day short course designed to introduce the technology of storing and handling bulk materials. It also covers the problems that can result from incorrect equipment selection, and looks at appropriate design methodologies for safe and reliable plant. Specially prepared by the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling, this course has already been attended by over three hundred engineers from industry and is regularly updated to reflect new developments and changes in industrial practice.

Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Materials

This intensive, two-day course was originally prepared at the request of the Department of Trade and Industry and first held in 1981. Since then over three hundred engineers from industry have attended. The course is regularly updated to reflect changes in industrial practice and new developments in pneumatic conveying technology.

During the course we'll cover subjects including system components, design techniques, operation and control of blow tank systems, explosion hazards and operational problems. The course also deals with the important but often neglected area of interfacing storage bins with conveying systems.

SPS IPC Drives

Meet suppliers of electric automation technology from around the world. Inform yourself about all products, trends and innovations within the industry from 28th - 30th November 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany.

The trade fair offers a perfect platform to search the right solutions for automation tasks.

The topic of Industry 4.0 is developing from a vision to reality and once again will be a main focus of the exhibition.

In the age of digital transformation, IT and automation are increasingly merging and this will be reflected at this year's event as never before.

Alongside topic based special display areas, presentations, many products and examples of applications devoted to digital transformation, hall 6 has a new thematic focus, which will address these new challenges in production technologies. Take this chance to achieve intelligent production.

Ranging from young companies to the industry’s key players, 1,605 exhibitors took advantage of SPS IPC Drives 2016 as a business platform for expanding their customer networks and strengthening their existing business relationships.

They were particularly excited about the high percentage of 70% decision-makers among those in attendance.

“SPS IPC Drives has been on a unique run, and exhibitors like us are reaping the benefits,” says Michael Reiter, CEO of eddylab GmbH. “The high level of inquiries you get there often leads to interesting new business relationships with a lot of potential, which is exactly what we’re looking for.”

Judging by the growing number of visitors and exhibitors attending from outside of Germany, electrical automation is a prominent topic all around the world.

Companies from a total of 45 countries took part in SPS IPC Drives 2016.

Following Germany, the top five exhibitor countries were Italy, China, Switzerland, Austria, and the United States.

Further, the year’s international visitors hailed from 87 different countries and accounted for 24% of those on hand.

Pneumatic Conveying System Design

There is a tradition of different companies using different design equations and assumptions. There has in recent years been a lot of new information generated using improved methods for measurement of material conveying properties, the use of these for design and the effects of design details such as bends and stepped bore sizes. The 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 without unplanned maintenance and undesired impact on quality of the powder being handled.

The event is intended to be interactive; delegates are asked to bring along and discuss the approaches they use in their own company and the practical difficulties they face, with a view to establishing a shared vision of best practice to boost the competitiveness of the UK's supply industry and minimise warranty claim costs and user complaints.

There will be a heavy emphasis on case studies to illustrate the issues under discussion.

Rotary Valves: Design, Selection and Operational Issues

Rotary valves are widely used to feed pneumatic conveying pipelines, and for feed metering, explosion isolation, atmospheric isolation etc. However there are literally thousands of combinations of different feature options available covering choice of materials of construction, rotor type, drive type, venting arrangements, bearing pattern, seal choice, clearances, cleaning features etc.  Faced with this bewildering choice, how does an engineer decide what to specify?  This course will help understand the reasons for the different options and how to choose them.

Bauma Conexpo Africa 2018

Bauma Conexpo Africa will take place from March 13th–16th, 2018 at the Johannesburg Expo Centre (JEC), South Africa.

According to the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African economy has turned the corner: as of next year, a positive economic recovery is anticipated on the back of infrastructure investments.

The President of the AfDB, Akinwumi Adesina, announced in an interview in September 2016 that the African economy is set to grow by 3.5% in 2016; for the year after expectations were for 3.7%, and 4.2% for 2018.

He said that there were 19 African countries whose growth was between three and five percent, and 21 countries whose economy would grow by more than 5%.

The previous Bauma Conexpo Africa in September 2015 was attended by a total of 616 exhibitors from 42 countries and approximately 14,300 visitors from 75 countries.

A total of 13% of visitors came from outside South Africa with a significant percentage increase from the sub Saharan region.

The organisers are expecting more than 600 exhibitors and 15,000 visitors for the forthcoming event.

More than 68,000 square metres of exhibition space is available.

Registration is now open. For more information, click HERE.
