Training via skype to help resolve your bulk materials handing problems: The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology is still open for business

You may have read that Universities around the UK have closed their campuses, so I want to reassure you that we were still open for business, working remotely so we can still help with equipment design and selection, problem solving and training.

We can be contacted

  • Advice
  • Training delivered remotely
  • Teleconference or video conference about your challenges or project needs
  • Materials characterisation and analysis

All our basic material characterisation facilities such as flow property measurements, size and moisture analyses etc are fully operational.  Larger scale tests like pneumatic conveying trials are still continuing unless a complete curfew comes into play.  Site visits for system reviews and surveys are a little more difficult, but we can still do these with the use of a live video link via your mobile phone.  So please, continue to call us with your challenges, problems and requirements in relation to materials handling, we are here to help you keep your businesses running through this difficult period and beyond.

All our scheduled short courses are continuing, except the “Commissioning of Pneumatic Conveying Systems Hands-On Course”.  These will be delivered live by our usual expert presenters, via remote means until such time as travel is back to normal.  We are currently offering a reduced fee of £675 per delegate for the following 2-day courses:-

  • 28 – 29 April: Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Materials
  • 9 – 10 June: Pneumatic Conveying System Design
  • 15 – 16 July: Powder Handling and Flow for Additive Manufacturing

In-company courses are also continuing to be arranged, tailored to your needs, if you have a number of delegates interested in the same topics.  Remote delivery brings some advantages; it is possible to split the training into smaller, more digestible segments (rather than two full days continuous) and we can deliver to many different locations simultaneously – these options will be discussed with potential delegates parties to provide the most convenience and best training outcomes.

In many ways, now is the perfect time to invest in training your people.  Live, remote delivery keeps the interpersonal experience, but saves their time and your money in travelling, and is a productive use of their time especially if they are a bit limited in what they could normally do or if business is a bit quiet.

The Commissioning and Troubleshooting ‘Hands on’ Pneumatic Conveying Systems course will be rescheduled at a later date.  Please still register your interest on line.

Keep safe and keep in touch
