UBM Canon, in association with Powder Bulk Solids, has recently announced the release of the 2012 International Powder and Bulk Solids Conference program set for May 8-11 in Rosemont, Illinois.  Running alongside the PTXI International Expo, it is the largest conference in North America that focuses on material handling, processing and storage.  The bi-annual conference and expo brought over 5,400 attendees in 2010.

Eric Maynard of Jenike and Johanson, a featured presenter at the International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference says,  "This May's Powder & Bulk Solids Conference has well-recognized presenters poised to deliver proven, practical, and insightful educational content in the areas of material storage & handling, pneumatic conveying, particle technology, and dust collection and safety.  The conference has been structured to meet the needs of engineers new to the field of solids handling, as well as seasoned plant or research personnel.  The program will provide both first principles theory for processing and handling of bulk solids and effective operating practices that will help established engineers to further improve plant operating efficiencies."

Kevin Cronin, Editor-in-Chief of Powder Bulk/Solids describes, "The Powder & Bulk Solids Conference is comprehensive, thorough, and all-encompassing, and includes presentations from some of the most experienced and expert minds in the dry processing and bulk solids handling industry."

Notable speakers include: Dr. David Mills and Prof. Mark Jones, who will offer sessions which will cover fundamental techniques for pneumatic conveying operation, process selection and troubleshooting; Dr. Vahid Ebadat will lead two sessions which explore the management of electrostatic problems during powder processing as well as the nature and control of dust explosions; Remi Trottier of The Dow Chemical Company will speak about the fundamentals of particle characterization; A research group from Air Products will offer am interactive workshop on the cryogenic grinding of polymers.

The International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference  offers a three-day, four track conference program, which allows attendees the opportunity for either a broad or narrow content focus.

Below are the four conference track options:

  • Pneumatic Conveying
  • Material Storage & Handling
  • Particle Technology
  • Dust Collection & Safety

Registration for the 2012 International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference is now open.
