BHR Group, the independent contract research, technology and product development organisation, today announced another of its specialised fluid engineering courses, “Slurry Handling, Pumping and Pipeline Design”, 19th-20th June, Cranfield, Bedfordshire.

The challenges of handling solid/liquid mixtures such as suspensions, dispersions, slurries and pastes are commonplace throughout industry.  Such handling operations include in-plant transfers in pipelines, plus feeding and discharge to and from agitated storage vessels.  These processes provide cost-effective, economic and efficient methods of transporting products with the minimum of maintenance and low environmental impact.

Whether you use the design techniques for in-plant transfer of minerals, bulk chemicals, food, or pharmaceutical products, or the secure transportation of effluent and waste products, this training Course will focus upon aspects critical to the effective operation of your processes.

BHR Group, the independent contract research, technology and product development organisation, today announced the first of its residential specialised fluid engineering courses, “Fundamentals of Rheology”, 29th-30th May, Cranfield, Bedfordshire.



This course will be of interest to those in industry who have responsibility for product formulation, or quality and process control, and working in the areas of product formulation and process plant design, selection and operation.



This course aims to provide an understanding of the rheological properties of a wide range of fluid types, including: high viscosity liquids, slurries, pastes, emulsions, polymer solutions and melts.  The properties to be explored include viscosity and yield stress, as well as complex viscosity, extensional viscosity, normal stress, and other viscoelastic properties.  The course will provide details of the various methods to measure many of these properties.
