The Wolfson Centre, part of the University of Greenwich School of Engineering in Medway, UK, is holding a two day course entitled “Practical Powder Characterisation and Sampling for Industry”, 21 – 22 May 2013.

The course has been designed to give delegates an overview of various methods of measuring the behavioural properties of powders.

The course aims to identify powders behavioural properties by:

  • Particle size measurement (manual and automated)

  • Density (solid and bulk)
  • Flow property measurements
  • Moisture mechanics
  • Segregation, degradation and caking
  • Explosability
  • Pneumatic conveying properties
  • Dustiness
  • Sampling

An optional practical session in the centre’s laboratories on 23rd May will allow delegates the chance to test their own powders using the equipment and techniques discussed during the course.
