Powder mixing technology course to take place in Amsterdam

April 26, 2016

A two day course on the principals and techniques of mixing free flowing or cohesive powders is scheduled to take place May 25-26, 2016, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Organised by the Center for Professional Advancement, the course is designed for professionals who are concerned with blended powder R&D and production technology in managerial, operational and supervisory positions involved in such industrial applications as powder metallurgy, food, pigments, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, propellants, ceramics, plastics and fertilisers.

The course presents the principles and techniques of mixing free-flowing or cohesive powders. Selection of suitable industrial equipment for particular mixing duties will be discussed analysing mixer performance in terms of process advantages, mixture quality and the flexibility of the mixer for multi-product manufacture.

Other topics to be covered include powder sampling techniques, a practical discussion of the statistics of mixing, the significance of statistics in powder formulation, the aggregation of mixtures, and the use of lubricants and flow aids for powders.

There will be special emphasis on the mixing of cohesive powders and the opportunities this can present to produce superior quality mixtures. The handling, packaging and marketing of powder products will also be discussed. Throughout the course, the faculty will relate principles to specific industrial problems.
