Direct Drying and Dryer Operations

  March 31, 2011  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
April 20, 2011 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend
Plant process and design engineers and scientists who are employed by the chemical, petrochemical, biochemical, food and pulp and paper and other high tech industries and who are involved with direct drying would benefit from this course. Engineers involved in specialty chemical manufacture, reactor and pilot plants, process and project design, waste processing, food, processing pulp and paper processing and waste minimization should attend.

Types of dryers studied include direct dryers: Tray, Conveyor or Belt, Flash, Fluid Bed, Rotary and Spray Dryers.

This 90-minute accredited online course is a detailed introductory course to direct drying and dryer operations which occur in processing in the numerous industries. This training will include opportunities for learning assessment.

Question and answer session

Organized by: CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Dr. Gary Tatterson, Professor, Chemical Engineering, North Carolina A&T State University

Dr. Gary Tatterson is a professor of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University (NC A&T SU) where he teaches full time. Specializing in plant design and various unit operations, Dr. Tatterson has taught individual specialized courses in drying and has been teaching and consulting since 1972.

His scaleup and two plant design courses at NC A&T SU follow a philosophy of fundamental and practical understanding that is important to the proper operation of multiphase processes.

Gary Tatterson has written extensively in the area of multiphase processing and the application the theories of fluid and solid mechanics to such work. He has over 40 refereed publications and three texts. One text is on scaleup of processes in general.
