Overview: The ultimate aim is to share the most up-to-date knowledge on how to obtain pipeline designs that work reliably, delivering the required throughput without unplanned maintenance and undesired impact on quality of the powder being handled.

Subjects covered:

  • Lean versus dense phase – relative advantages in practical application, and applicability to different materials;
  • A detailed look at obtaining conveying information for the material to be handled, and how to scale this up for pipeline design;
  • Different equations for predicting pipeline pressure drop and throughput;
  • Stepped bore pipelines – how they enhance system performance and reduce problems, and how to design them;
  • Differences in powder behaviour;
  • A detailed look at bends; radius, pressure drop, wear, particle damage and material build-up;
  • Air humidity effects – psychrometry and moisture calculations, and controlling interaction or airborne moisture with the powder;
  • Practical details – choice of coupling systems, pipe specification systems etc;
