M a y 2 0 1 4 58 Conference Program Track C Standards Compliance - OSHA's Combustible Dust NEP Update - Region V's Perspective Mark Knezovich, M.S. Industrial Hygienist, OSHA - Region V Enforcement Programs, Chicago, IL 1:30 PM - 3 PM This session will review the fundamental ele- ments of OSHA's Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program reissued in 2008, provide Region V specific data and statistics as to the nature of OSHA enforcement under the gen- eral duty clause, and highlight the current status of OSHA's rule making process re- lated to a combustible dust standard. Track D - Innovation on the Show Floor Facilitator: Joe Marinelli, President, Solids Handling Technologies Inc. 1:30 PM - 3 PM Facilitated bulk storage and feeding tour of the show floor to stop and speak with exhibi- tors and discover what is new at the Powder Show in 2014. Track A What's New in Tech - Solving Powder Challenges Using Particle Size and Particle Shape Analysis Ian Treviranus, Product Line Manager, Horiba Instruments Inc. 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM Measuring the particle size and shape of powders is a common requirement for the development and quality control of count- less products. This workshop will feature two technologies, laser diffraction and dy- namic image analysis, to explore challenges associated with powder measurement in- cluding sampling, data interpretation, data quality, and verification. Laser diffraction is a well-known sizing technology suitable for most R&D, QC, and production environ- ments. Dynamic image analysis is a disrup- tive technology capable of providing very high resolution size and shape data. This workshop will be suitable for anyone wish- ing to make higher quality powder size and/ or shape measurements. Track B Industry Case Studies - Integrating Processes for Food Production Panelists: Par Almhem, President, Modwave Jeff Chambers, PE, PMP, Senior Engineering Capital Project Manager & Engineering Leadership, Rodem Ryan Sausser, Senior Process Engineer, Kellogg Co. 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM This session will provide an understanding of how to implement processes and solu- tions that meet Good Manufacturing Practices for food production. Track C Fundamental Technical Workshop - Dust Collection System Maintenance and Troubleshooting Gary Q. Johnson, Chemical Engineer & Consultant, Workplace Exposure Solutions 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM Dust collection systems are a main line de- fense against fugitive dust accumulations in the workplace. Predictive maintenance princi- ples can be applied to anticipate the common failure modes of the systems and the individ- ual components and provide long term, sus- tained system performance. Maintenance and troubleshooting can be accomplished with pressure measurements alone. • Dust collection system measurements • Common dust collection system component failure modes Track D Fundamental Technical Workshop - Volumetric and Gravimetric Feeder Design to Ensure Reliable Flow Joe Marinelli, President, Solids Handling Technologies Inc. 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM Feeders are used to control the rate of ma- terial discharge from a bin, silo, or hopper. Improper design of volumetric and gravi- metric bulk solids feeders can lead to flow problems, process upsets, and downtime. In this session, these topics will be dicussed: volumetric and gravimetric feeder design such as design techniques for screw feed- ers, belt feeders, rotary valve feeders, and others. • Volumetric screws, belts, and rotary valves • Gravimetric feeding such as weigh belts, loss-in-weight • Feeder and bin interaction WEDNESDAY MAY 7 Keynote Technology Panel - Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) Concepts and Applications Moderator: Shrikant Dhodapkar, Research Fellow, Process R&D, Performance Plastics Division, The Dow Chemical Co./Adjunct Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, University Of Pittsburgh Panelists: Richard LaRoche, Vice President Of Engineering & US General Manager, DEM Solutions Alan Roberts, Professor Emeritus, University Of Newcastle | Founding Director, TUNRA Bulk & Solids (Australia) Andre Katterfeld, Professor, Institute Of Logistics & Material Handling Systems, Universitat Magdeburg (Germany) Tim Donohue, Engineering Manager For Modeling & Simulation, TUNRA Bulk & Solids Yutaka Tsuji, Professor Emeritus, Osaka University/ Chairman Of Appie (Japan) 9 AM - 10 AM • Proper uses and applications • Limitations of DEM – including particle number, size, and shape • Understanding the output and inputs – the importance of calibrated parameter inputs • Parameter calibration – from particle scale to site modeling • Devising an optimum design and using DEM tools to fine-tune that design • Advanced features of DEM such as wear modeling and force exports • Coupling of DEM with additional tools such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Track A Advanced Technical Workshop - Troubleshooting Pneumatic Conveying Systems David Mills, Pneumatic Conveying Consultant, UK (United Kingdom) Vijay Argawal, Professor, Industrial Tribology, Machine Dynamics & Maintenance Engineering Centre, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (India) 10:15 AM - 11:45 AM For engineers who are experiencing opera- tional problems with an existing pneumatic conveying system, or who want to know SIZES: 20-750 HP MATERIALS PROCESSED: • Food • Plastics • Minerals • Chemicals • Recycling • Fibers • Wax • Cellulose Complete Systems Single-source Responsibility Testing Station on site Process Verification PULVERIZING FLASH DRYING AIR CLASSIFICATION IPEC pulverizing systems feature carbon steel/stainless steel construction, with long-wear, abrasion resistant parts, explosion resistant designs INTERNATIONAL PROCESS EQUIPMENT COMPANY Toll-Free: 800-414-4995 • Tel: 856-665-4007 • Fax: 856-665-3991 E-mail: rotormill@aol.com • www.rotormill.com ROTORMILL ROTORDRYER ROTORSIZER Visit us at the Powder Show booth #1020 We put technology in motion.™ www.sweco.com info@sweco.com Patented In 1942.
