BinMaster to be part of K-State Storage and Flow of Bulk Solids course

The training will be held in Salina, Kan. and is open to students and professionals interested in furthering their knowledge in bulk solids handling.

BinMaster is joining the Kansas State Bulk Solids Innovation Center as it shapes the future for bulk solids industry professionals. The company has been asked to educate students about level measurement at the upcoming three-day course on Storage and Flow of Bulk Solids taking place March 31 to April 2, 2020.

BinMaster's session will cover the types of point and continuous level measurement sensors with a focus on how each technology works and is applied in a plant environment. It will demonstrate how to integrate an inventory management system into a plant using wireless communication devices and software to make their operation more efficient. It is designed to provide practical knowledge that can be applied immediately upon course completion.

"It is a privilege to have been asked to participate and be able to contribute to the educational mission of the BSIC," says Nathan Grube, course instructor and regional vice president of BinMaster. "The coursework provided by the Bulk Solids Innovation Center prepares industrial professionals to tap into the power of the latest technology, and it's an honor to be part of that."

The training will be held in Salina, Kan. and is open to students and professionals interested in furthering their knowledge in bulk solids handling. Registration for the course is open to both domestic and global attendees. The cost for the three-day course is $1,300.

The BSIC provides innovative solutions in bulk solids storage, flow, conveying and handling. Bulk solids make up more than 80% of items transported around the world, yet formal education and research concerning these materials is not completely understood. How solid materials behave in transport and processing requires more examination. The Center provides a wide range of value-added solutions and services to enhance efficiency and productivity to variety of industries - food, chemicals, minerals, pharmaceuticals and plastics. From research, education, training, access to technology and bench to full-scale testing of dry bulk solids, the Center identifies and solves real-world industrial problems.
