CD of live Broadcast 2/10/2009Feeders are used to control the rate of bulk material discharge from a hopper into a process. Unanticipated costs can routinely be incurred from poorly operating feed systems. These costs can be a result of increased labor, reduced output, process downtime, lost or off-specification product, or energy costs. The correct selection and implementation of feeders, such as screws, belts, or rotary valves, is not trivial, as many engineers have discovered. Poor implementation and operation can lead to problems such as erratic discharge, flooding, particle damage, or abrasive wear. The content covered in this webinar will help a participant understand the fundamental principles of common bulk solids feeders and the cost savings that can result from pragmatic efficiency gains.
CDs are non-returnable/non-refundable
Some important topics to be covered during the Webinar:
Introduction – what is a feeder
Industry-wide systematic problems with bulk solids processing and handling
Simple economics of feeder operation
Examples of common feeding problems and general costs
Improving feeding efficiencies with screws, belts, and rotary valves
