Rotary Valves; Design, Selection and Operational Issues; on-line Short Course
The course will discuss the different options available, highlighting reasons for specific choices to be made for rotor or drive type, seals, bearing patterns, materials of construction as well as cleaning features and venting arrangements.
It is highly recommended for engineers involved in the design of pneumatic conveying systems as well as maintenance personnel who have responsibility for sourcing, specifying and keeping operational rotary valves in all industries.
Bulk Solids Handling Expert Prof Mike Bradley, of the Wolfson Centre, University of Greenwich, will deliver the course over 2 sessions.
- Day 1: Introduction and application areas / Solids flow, valve sizing and filling factors / Air leakage and venting
- Day 2: Feature options / Dust explosions and explosion isolation / Explosion protection / Interfacing with Storage Bins
Case studies of failures and successes will be used to demonstrate the importance of correct specification.
Each session lasts 3 hours and provides the opportunity to discuss choices of valves and their features as well as operational issues with the presenter and other delegates.
A previous delegate said of the course: The Rotary Valve short course is a densely packed rundown of rotary valve design, selection and applications. I found Prof Bradley to be an excellent educator who is delighted to answer any question with great in-depth knowledge.
