Book Aims to Aid Mechanical Engineers in 'Bulk Material Handling'

Michael Rivkin, PhD, believes that thousands of mechanical/mine engineers involved in bulk material handling (design, maintenance, upgrading and optimization) do not have special background in this field. Such situation prevents them from choosing the optimal technical solution for their daily operations and for new projects.

Drawing on his decades of experience in design, construction, upgrading, optimization, troubleshooting, and maintenance throughout the world, Rivkin releases a guidebook titled “Bulk Material Handling: Practical Guidance for Mechanical Engineers” (published by Partridge Singapore), to help those without an extensive background in material handling find optimal solutions to everyday problems.

Filled with graphs, charts and case studies, the book includes analysis of various bulk material handling systems (advantages vs. disadvantages) and interdependency between type of the equipment and characteristics of the bulk material to be transported. Recommendations are also given on how to turn the existing transporting terminal into efficient, low-maintenance and environmental friendly terminal.
