A technical publication devoted to readers in the bulk solids market, worldwide.

Webinar Details: One of the decisions that needs to be made when someone is considering the design or specification of a pneumatic conveying system is which “mode” of conveying is required. The “mode” refers to the nature of the interaction between the solids and the transport gas inside the convey line. The selection of the “mode” takes into account many parameters such as the abrasive nature of the material, the potential of the material to become damaged while moving through the convey line, the need for having a continuous, uninterrupted flow of solids vs intermittent flow, etc. The physical characteristics of the material to be conveyed also play a significant role in the selection process. This webinar will review all of the issues to be addressed with respect to dense-phase conveying and provide the participants with the knowledge and awareness of what dense-phase conveying really is and when it should be applied and, more important, when it should not be applied.

Presenter Information: Jack D. Hilbert, PE, is a pneumatic conveying expert with Hatch Associates based in Schnecksville, PA. He has more than 45 years of experience in the application, design, engineering, installation, and operation of pneumatic conveying systems and has written numerous papers and given many presentations at technical conferences. Jack is a graduate of Penn State University with undergraduate and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering.
