Industry Training and Professional Development

The Bulk Solids Innovation Center provides professional development courses to further industry and employee education. 

Upcoming Courses

Storage and Flow of Bulk Solids

This course has been postponed due to conditions stemming from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The course will be rescheduled for summer 2020. A date will be announced in the coming weeks.

Reliable flow and storage are an issue at many plants. This course addresses how to prevent those problems and how to address them if they occur. Students will receive a combination of instruction via design, theory, and hands-on application.

March 31-April 2, 2020 | 21.25 PDH/2.1 CEU | $1,300 through Feb. 21

Foundations of Pneumatic Conveying

Hands-on learning will show the advantages and disadvantages of each type of pneumatic conveying system. All components will be shown and discussed. Case study examples and reference materials will be provided for selecting the correct system and components. 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.
