Wednesday 16 november


10h30 – 11h20

Hein Timmerman, EHEDG & Diversey
Cleaning techniques for dry production


11h20 – 11h50

Johan Roels, J-Tec
Speed of dry cleaning in food factory handling dry materials

13h30 – 14h00

Ben Van Tichelen, ATHEX Industrial Suppliers
Static earthing of bulk and tankers

If static electricity builds up on process equipment, the energy content of a static discharge can cause fires and/or explosions in ATEX environments. Grounding objects and components reduces the build-up of electrostatic charges, thus also preventing potential danger. Loading trucks in fire and explosion-prone ATEX environments also poses static electricity risks. During this presentation, ATHEX explains good practice, based on guidelines and standards, which aims to mitigate the risks.

14h00 – 15h00

Jeanne Desconclois & Johan Verdeyen, Endress+Hauser Improving quality and cutting costs is easy

Endress brings “peace of mind” by ensuring the quality of your product, saving energy , and simplifying logistics
This through easily implementable online measurement systems and automated documentation management.
The talk demonstrates this through practical examples.


15h15 – 15h45

Frederik Norman, Adinex
Working safely with flammable solvents

A number of experiments are used to explain the fire and explosion risks when using solvents.

Thursday 17 november

11h00 – 11h30

Thomas Eules, Daxner Fully automated solutions for the production of baking and spice mixtures –

The seminar will deal with the description of a real plant for a company producing spice mixes. Daxner will explain the different production areas of the plant and what customers have to bear in mind when installing such a system.

11h45 – 12h15

Frederik Blancke, Uptimise

More production gains through targeted tuning of rotary valves and diverter valves.

This is a concrete case demonstrating how the targeted overhaul of rotary valves or diverter valves in bulk transport produces a significant reduction in environmental impact and an increase in production profits.


13h30 – 14h00

Massimiliano Sacchi, F.lli Sacchi
Robotics: the future of powder handling technology

Solids dosing, handling, filling technology has reached maturity in terms of technical solution. The traditional material handling systems show their limits due to changing market demands such as flexibility, quick change over and ability to adapt to different supply sources and packaging. Recently consolidated robotics systems replicate the human work by using industrial articulated robots. These high tech systems deliver the advantages of human like flexibility beside typical machine capacity in terms of speed, accuracy and reliability. Innovative robotic solutions are real and are revolutionizing the powder recipe preparation, micro ingredient dosing and bag filling.


14h15 – 14h45

Munters Belgium nv

15h00 – 15h30

André van Zutphen, Munters
Energy efficiency of processes

Moisture is a familiar problem for many companies. It can cause clumping of dry substances, bacterial growth in refrigerated production areas or instability of a spray-drying process. Dehumidifying efficiently prevents downtime and even bacterial growth. During this lecture, André will also elaborate on topics such as energy savings with spray dryers and how the right dehumidification solution can increase the efficiency of your process.
