Powder Technology course to run at Lund University
March 17, 2015
A three day course on Powder Technology in Pharma, Food, Chemistry and Metallurgy is scheduled to take place at Sweden’s Lund University, September 9-11, 2015. The aim of the course is to provide participants with a better understanding of powder products and processes and to supply tools to stimulate new ideas for development and improvement of powder products and processes.
The course format includes round table discussions focusing on specific themes such as rheology, powder characterisation, granulation, agglomeration and processing of metal powders.
The first two days of the course will focus on:
- Particle properties and physical behaviour: measurements and definitions
- Properties of powder: definitions, important properties, what and how to influence powder properties
- Particle size enlargement: granulation, agglomeration and tableting.
The third day allows participants to choose between the following based on their area of interest:
- Powder processing: fractionation, mixing, redispersion in liquid, conveying and storing or
- Metallic powders and their applications.
The metallic powders and their applications programme discusses methods for producing metal powders, microstructure control and powder preparation. Shaping and consolidation, including sintering, HIP and full density processing is covered along with the characterisation of powder products and material properties.
