Eric Maynard is a Vice President at Jenike & Johanson, a world-renowned engineering consulting firm specializing in the storage, flow and processing of powder and bulk solids. During his 24 years at Jenike & Johanson, he has designed handling systems for bulk solids including cement, coal, limestone, plastic powder, fertilizers, food products, and pharmaceuticals.
He has gained valuable hands-on experience from working on over 750 solids handling and pneumatic conveying projects. Mr. Maynard has specialized knowledge in the areas of dust explosions, static electricity generation, and crushing technologies. Eric’s working knowledge of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards for safe handling of combustible dusts helps him provide valuable advice to his clients to ensure safe handling of materials prone to explosions or fires. He is on NFPA committees 652, 654, 655, and 91. His expertise also includes designing new pneumatic conveying systems and troubleshooting systems that are poorly operating and experiencing costly problems with abrasive wear, line blockages, throughput limitations, and particle attrition.
Eric has authored over 50 technical articles, with many published in periodicals including Chemical Engineering, Powder & Bulk Engineering, Chemical Engineering Progress, World Cement, and Global Cement magazines.
He is the company’s principal instructor for training on the storage, flow, and pneumatic conveying of bulk solids presented through the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). Additional subject areas of expertise include stockpile and feeder design, mixing/blending, particle segregation, sampling, and caking of bulk materials. Eric received his Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Villanova University in Pennsylvania and his master of science in mechanical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts.
