Course offering number:1101-701
Agglomeration II: Tumble Agglomeration Basics (Second in a two-part series)
AN ON-DEMAND ONLINE TRAINING FORMAT
Who Should Attend
This training is intended for professionals in fields such as pharmaceuticals, specialty chemical processing, mineral operations, food processing,
animal feeds, fertilizers, candies, cement and biochemical.
Engineers and scientists who are employed in these industries and who are involved with agglomeration would benefit from this course. The
novice will be quickly brought "up to speed" and the expert will be exposed to a detailed review of the subjects.
Engineers involved with solids, solids processing, fines processing, solid waste stream manufacturing, mining, ore production, specialty
chemical manufacturing, reactor & pilot plants process, project design and waste processing and waste minimization should attend. Engineers
involved with plant operations and maintenance will also benefit.
Typical job titles of those who should attend include: Process chemist, Agricultural engineer, Project engineer, Food technologist, Process
engineer, Manufacturing engineer, Mechanical engineer, Maintenance engineer, Mining engineer, Chemical engineer and Research engineer.
A clear overview of the principles of tumble and mixing agglomeration is given. This 90-minute accredited training course is the second of a
series of courses on agglomeration. This course offers a clear overview of the principles of Tumble Agglomeration, Mixing Agglomeration and
includes discussions on Binders and Screening. For maximum training benefit, the course director recommends attendance at the first course
of this series, Agglomeration I: A Practical Approach to Particle Size Enlargement.
