AIChE is the world’s leading organization for chemical engineering professionals, with over 45,000 members from over 100 countries.

Founded in 1908, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is a nonprofit organization providing leadership to the chemical engineering profession representing 45,000 members in industry, academia, and government.

By the invitation of Tom Maddox of T.L. Maddox, our very own Joel Swieringa had the honor of being a presenting speaker at the 2015 April meeting, held at the Engineers’ Club of Saint Louis, together with members of the AMSE. Joel gave a presentation on the “Fundamentals of  Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying”. This presentation covered the theory of operations and the fundamentals of dense phase conveying advantages and features of the various types of equipment, and the selection of the best equipment for various applications. Dense phase low velocity is well suited to handle problematic materials like ash, EAF Dust, sugar, sand, fish food pellets, rice puffs, lime, cullet, cement, and others.  The benefits of dense-phase conveying include increased operating efficiency and reduced maintenance costs.  All very important issues when designing a system to fit your unique requirements.

Macawber is an expert in dense-phase pneumatic conveying, having focused on this process for over 40 years. The company continues to provide solutions to customer-specific material handling requirements and appreciated the opportunity to share its know-how and experience with an attentive group of mechanical engineers. Thank you Joel for a job well done.
