One-Day Workshop: Bulk Materials Handling - Presented by TUNRA Bulk Solids

Bulk Materials Handling

Presented by TUNRA Bulk Solids


The storage, handling and transportation of bulk solid materials are major activities for a vast number and variety of industries throughout the world. These range from the gentle handling of very small quantities of material in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries to the vast quantities handled and processed by the mining and mineral companies. This diversity is particularly evident in Australia where the wide-ranging nature and scale of operations is somewhat unique.

Considerable advances continue to be made in research, development, application and implementation of the technologies associated with various aspects of bulk solids handling. 

TUNRA Bulk Solids are pleased to present  a one-day workshop which will provide delegates with an overview of current state-of-the-art materials handling techniques and their application to industry. 

Topics Covered

  • Flow property testing and understanding of material behaviour under varying conditions
  • Transfer chute design principles and advanced simulation techniques including Discrete Element Modelling
  • Understanding the types of flow and appropriate design of bins and hoppers
  • Belt conveyor design and latest testing available for the correct selection of conveyor belts and idlers
  • Environmental testing for the design of dust-free operations

Why Attend

  • Diversify your expertise and further knowledge of materials handling concepts
  • Increase awareness of material behaviour on site
  • Learn methods for troubleshooting, optimisation and best practice design
  • Networking with experts in the field of materials handling
  • Stay up to date with the latest developments in industry and bulk solids research
