Particle Transport & Storage Day 2022


Particle Transport and Storage day 2022

On Tuesday June 14, 2022 we will organize in close collaboration with a number of partner companies the Transport and Storage day covering different themes associated with transport of powders and granules and the storage thereof.
Institutions that have confirmed to contribute to the lecture program are ESI Eurosilo, TSC silos, Innofour, TUDelft, AZO, Volkmann, and Delft Solids Solutions.

Lectures and case studies delivered during this seminar will be devoted to e.g.

  • On the necessity of solids transport and storage including logistics
  • Pneumatic transport in dilute and dense phase
  • Modelling particle transport
  • Prediction and testing of particle wear during pneumatic conveying
  • Powder flow and hopper design
  • Construction of hoppers and selection of wall material
  • Practical implementation of silos in industry
  • Caking during transport and storage of solid materials

The seminar offers an interactive program designed for anyone who is working in the field of powder and particle handling, processing, formulation, drying, particle performance, and related unit operations. As we have scheduled overview lectures that are applicable to all industries ranging from food, feed, pharmaceutical and cosmetics to chemicals, this seminar is of interest to a very broad audience. The main goal of this event is sharing knowledge on this theme. We have also scheduled an interactive hands-on part in the afternoon where the participants will work in teams on various case studies associated with the topic. The seminar ends with a networking event in the hotel bar.
