Course description

View Course Outline

Dry blending is a key process in a number of industries. It is very important to understand the bulk solid properties that are present in an operation and how this affects process effectiveness. A lack of understanding can lead to excessive downtime and unnecessary expense to a company.

A number of key areas will be covered including bulk solids properties, mixing technologies, and bulk solids handling. Further, many of the challenges around mixing products will be addressed such as cohesiveness, blending accuracy, segregation, and particle breakdown.

This training will follow a lecture/discussion/video presentation format. Demonstrations of the various types of mixing equipment, cleaning, troubleshooting, and maintenance procedures will be shown.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • State the key bulk solids parameters that are most important in the blending process
  • Explain the design and operating variables and their effects on performance in the dry blending process
  • Conduct proper equipmentselection, optimization, cleaning and maintenance for an application
  • List the parameters which can create challengesin blending
  • Conduct process analysis and troubleshooting
  • Perform scale‐up from the pilot plant to production.
