Troubleshooting and Commissioning Pneumatic Conveying System


Overview: Delegates will look at the setting up and commissioning of pneumatic conveying systems.

This course is a ’Hands on’ fully practical session using the pneumatic conveying lines and rotary valves in the on-site laboratories in Chatham.

Subjects covered:

  • The practical challenge of starting up systems on site and making sure they work as the designer intended;
  • Understand the key signals to look out for that tell you how the system is operating;
  • Avoiding pitfalls that can lead to slow start up, blockages etc;
  • How to know when the system is operating as intended;
  • Ensuring the system is optimised around the users priority requirements eg. minimum energy usage/ particle blockage / system wear;
