Advanced training at ProSpare


The University of Greenwich Wolfson Centre comes to ProSpare to deliver an advanced training programme

ProSpare recently had the privilege of hosting Richard Farnish, a senior research fellow and consultant engineer from the Wolfson Centre at the University of Greenwich, who delivered the prestigious ‘Overview of Particulate Handling Technology’ training programme.

The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology is internationally recognised for its expertise in fields associated with bulk particulate handling and in the science and practical application of technologies to deliver improved process efficiencies. Their aim is to help the industry make powders and bulk materials behave predictably through production processes.

The well-respected training seminar focused on the technology behind the flow and transfer of bulk materials, and was held at the ProSpare offices over two days. The programme perfectly compliments the ProSpare objective of helping companies handling bulk powders and raw materials to improve manufacturing processes to deliver better plant efficiency and safety.

Delegates from numerous companies attended, along with a number of ProSpare’s engineering and technical sales team. ProSpare project engineer and continuous improvement specialist, Tom Bullock, who has a first class honours degree in mechanical and manufacturing engineering from the University of Warwick, commented:

“The course was excellent and explained in very precise detail why companies face such challenging problems handling bulk materials. This just goes to show why there’s such a demand for our products. Identifying the root cause of these problems helps us understand how to solve them more effectively from a technically informed perspective.”

We would like thank Richard Farnish and the Wolfson Centre for their extensive knowledge and insightful training.
