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

Webinar Details: The design of a pneumatic conveying system takes into account many different factors including the material characteristics, the overall system requirements with respect to capacity, distance, current as well as future considerations, etc. There are several different approaches available for calculating the system parameters for dilute-phase conveying — some that are more acceptable for budgetary or preliminary type analyses and others that are better suited for final designs. This webinar will provide the fundamental steps to take in developing a design basis for a dilute-phase pneumatic conveying system as well as provide alternative design approaches for determining the actual system pressure drop requirements.

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.
