K-State Basics of Pneumatic Conveying Course

Feb 20th, 2024Feb 21st, 2024

Pneumatic conveying is the most widely used method for transporting bulk solid materials, but frequent problems occur because few people receive formal training about the technology. This course provides a broad education about everything related to pneumatic conveying. Students receive an expert lecture about each topic, then take part in hands-on demonstrations using working components and actual conveying systems.

This is an in-person course across two full days. This course is offered at K-State Olathe with lab demos at a local industry lab. An optional industry tour and dinner are included at the end of the first day. This course will also be offered from March 26-27, 2024.
