Bulk Solids Handling for Chemical Engineers
Jenike & Johanson
Since joining Jenike & Johanson in 1996, Maynard has published over 50 articles on the storage, flow, and pneumatic transport of bulk solids. In addition to being responsible for internal training of new engineers at Jenike & Johanson, Maynard is the principal instructor for the 'Flow of solids in bins, hoppers, chutes, and feeders' and 'Pneumatic conveying of bulk solids' courses sponsored four times per year by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Continuing Education Program. He has also presented bulk material and pneumatic conveying technology at over 300 training events world-wide and has designed more than 750 bulk material handling and conveying systems for various powders and bulk solids, with a special focus on the cement, power, and mining industries.
Eric is a special expert on NFPA committees 654, 91, and 655 and an active member of the ASME, AIChE, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Eric received his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Villanova University and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Jenike & Johanson
Corin is the Operations Manager for Jenike & Johanson in Perth, Australia, and is passionate about applying the science of bulk solids handling to help people and organisations succeed, especially those in the resources sector.
The flow behaviour of bulk solids is deceptively complex and often treated with contempt during the design stage hence there are plenty of “opportunities for improvement”, in almost every industry. As a bulk solids handling engineer with 15 years’ experience, Corin therefore gets plenty of opportunity to indulge his passion, which he enjoys sharing with others. This deep practical experience combined with his accomplished and entertaining presentation style ensures that you won’t be disappointed!
