The Wolfson Centre offers a range of very popular and useful short courses designed specifically for industry.
We have been delivering short courses for over 25 years, both at the university and in the workplace. Over this time we’ve developed strong links with industry, offering consultancy, research projects and short courses that combine technological excellence with personalised teaching. We have now included practical sessions with some of our courses, to help delegates consolidate the theory.
All our courses are designed to suit the needs of engineers, whether in the pharmaceutical, food processing, minerals, power generation or recycling industries; in fact anyone involved in the handling of bulk solid materials or the flow of powders will benefit. They are designed for engineers, managers, skilled operatives, maintenance crew or anyone involved in using or handling powders or particulates.
You don’t need advanced qualifications either – a basic technical education and/or industry experience is enough.
Short Courses in April
During April the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology is holding a selection of courses aimed to inform process engineers and professionals involved in the bulk solids industry of the technologies and techniques available to address their manufacturing issues.
Dust Explosions: How to demonstrate DSEAR/ATEX Compliance
6 April: An introduction to the subject discussing the simple measures that can be taken to reduce the hazard of a dust explosion. It includes a brief overview of current legislation and the safety precautions required to demonstrate compliance and provide a safe working environment for employees.
Caking and Lump Formation in Powders and Bulk Materials
13 April: Discuss the issues relating to keeping powders and granules in a free-flowing, lump-free condition during storage and transport. Case studies are used throughout to illustrate problems encountered in Industry.
Advanced course: Design of Equipment for Storing and Discharging Bulk Materials
26 – 27 April: Hoppers, silos, bins and bunkers are widely used in industry for storing bulk solids materials. To ensure regular discharge from these storage systems, it is important to understand the flow characteristics of the materials being handled, and to ensure that the bins have been designed accordingly.
All courses are held at the University of Greenwich, Chatham campus
Course details, including the full calendar of events, is available at www.gre.ac.uk/engsci/research/groups/wolfsoncentre/coupro/sc along with on-line booking.
