Powder Handling & Granular Flow Seminar

Handling and processing of powders and particulates remains to date one of the biggest challenges in plant operations. The IAgrE Engineering for Food & Drink group hosts a seminar in which new technologies in this field were presented, helping us to operate plants more safely and more efficiently.

Our panel of expert speakers covered: measurement, caking, adhesion, operational instability and avoiding foreign body contamination.  The PDFs of the presentations are linked on the titles in the programme below and the recordings may be viewed on the IAgrE Videos YouTube Channel on the Powder Handling & Granular Flow Playlist.
