13/01/2016: University of Greenwich offers one-day course: Electrostatics in bulk materials handling

When handling powders and particulates, you may have experienced the generation of electrostatic charges causing unwanted cohesion or adhesion of materials. This may have then resulted in difficulties such as particle agglomeration, segregation, material build-up on equipment or ignition causing explosions.

The behaviour can be erratic, unpredictable and dangerous.

This one-day course discusses how and why this happens, the resulting hazards, and possible solutions to reduce the risk of repetition.

Section 1
  • Electrostatic charge phenomenon
  • Understanding the electrostatic charge
  • Fundamental theory of electrostatics 
  • Electrostatic charge of particulates
Section 2
  • Charge influences on physical properties
  • Electrostatic hazards 
  • Charge evaluation and measurement techniques
Section 3
  • Charge assessment and control 
  • Application of the electrostatic charge
The day ends with a workshop/discussion period relating to your own electrostatic issues.
 

Date: 10 February
Fee: UK£490 per delegate
Venue: Chatham Maritime, Kent
