Event Details

W1. Powder Flow I: Measuring Powder Flowability & Its Applications
January 15-16, 2018
An intense 2-day powder flow & handling workshop, for those involved in industrial chemical, pharmaceutical or
solids processing issues in which flow properties are critical, including material handling, segregation, feeding,
roll pressing and tabletting. This course lays the groundwork for understanding the unique nature of powder
flow properties, & its impact on processing & compaction, through team design problems & hands-on
measurements by shear & permeability cell, fluidization/segregation testing, & roll press/tabletting demos. 

W2. Powder Flow II: Industrial Solids Handling & Mixing
January 15-16, 2018
By popular request, a follow-on companion workshop treating industrial solids flow principles of Powder Flow I,
& commonly encountered design & operational issues of powder systems and mixing. Topics include unassisted
mass/funnel flow discharge; flow promoting devices, aeration and vibration; feeders; conveying of powders;
processing of segregating blends; solids blending & mixing, mixer selection and mixture quality. This course is
useful for anyone optimizing current or designing future solids handling systems. It presumes a requisite
knowledge of powder flow principles such as Powder Flow I, or equivalent experience.

W3. An Introduction to Powder Processing
January 17-19, 2018
A first powder technology workshop introducing participants to the unique attributes of powders, contrasted to
more well understood liquids, and the impact of these complexities on solids processing. Topics include powder
characterization; segregation & powder sampling; and an overview of key unit operations of mixing, grinding,
agglomeration, classification, fluidization, & drying, as well as solids transport between operations.

W4. Granulation & Compaction Processes for Enhanced Product Performance
January 17-19, 2018
This agglomeration workshop is a relatively advanced course drawing heavily on the interaction between powder
properties and unit-operations, covering a variety of granulation (fluid-bed, discs, pans, mixers) and compaction
processes (roll pressing, tabletting, extrusion) as well as formulation techniques. It emphasizes the marriage
between formulation properties, characterization techniques, and engineering scale-up in controlling granule &
compact quality.
