Note:
This two day course is an overview of most aspects of the equipment and methods used in bulk materials handling from the pit to the port. The course is designed to give an introduction to the practical engineering aspects of bulk materials handling design, and an awareness of the many types of equipment and their application. The course provides some practical design considerations for engineers and designers, and leads to better outcomes for the industry.

We will review:
  • types of equipment that is available, why we use various equipment in certain applications, how they function, including tips and experiences
  • design considerations for materials handling systems
  • the available science for design of bulk materials handling systems
  • issues that make for safe, operable and maintainable systems
 
The course is a PowerPoint session, but participants are expected to contribute questions and experiences.
 
Course Objectives
 
The course is designed to give an introduction to the practical engineering aspects of bulk materials handling design, and an awareness of the many types of equipment and their application. The course provides some practical design considerations for engineers and designers, and leads to better outcomes for the industry.
 
This information is not readily available in any learned institution or in texts, yet many of our projects involve the design and construction and operation of materials handling systems that are often 50% or more of the total capital cost.
 
Poor design can lead to poor construction and operation, unsafe works, higher cost of operation, environmental issues and other aspects that can be addressed with some knowledge and research given the right starting point.
 
Target Audience
 
Anyone with an interest in learning about bulk materials handling. Steve has presented to new graduates, engineers and designers with over 30 years’ experience, merchant bankers, equipment suppliers and many others.
