Topic

Particle segregation is a major problem in many industries, such as pharmaceuticals, and roofing granules. If the particles segregate (fines separating from coarse), you and your customers will experience problems with quality control, process variations, etc.

In this online session, Joseph Marinelli discusses the mechanisms that cause segregation — such as sifting, fluidization, air entrainment, etc. He also presents several case histories and ways to resolve the problems experienced.

Presenter

Joseph MarinelliJoseph Marinelli, president of Solids Handling Technologies, is a bulk materials handling expert who has taught hundreds of highly acclaimed engineering seminars. Since 1972, he has been active in testing bulk solids and consulting on materials handling systems design. With Jenike & Johanson, Inc, Mr Marinelli received his Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering, from Northeastern University in Boston, MA.

Mr Marinelli has also worked for manufacturers of solids handling equipment, such as feeders and silos. This background provides a unique blend of consulting and manufacturing experience to solve solids flow problems. He lectures frequently, teaching courses on solids flow principles and flow property testing, and has authored several papers and an encyclopedia section on the subject. Since 1997, he has been involved with very popular seminars at the University of Wisconsin in the areas of bin and feeder design and solids flow property testing.

Format

A one-hour online session: 30–40 minutes' presentation + 20 minutes' Q&A.
