Powder flow tester

February 1, 2010




Used to analyze powder flow behavior in industrial processing equipment, the powder flow tester (PFT) is suitable for manufacturers who want to minimize or eliminate downtime that occurs when hoppers and silos fail to discharge. The unit also allows users to perform QC checks on incoming materials, characterize new formulations for flowability and adjust composition to match the flow behavior of established products. It features a variety of test options including: flow function, time consolidation, wall friction and bulk density.  Time estimates for duration of each test are automatically calculated before start of test, and operators can choose graphical or tabular data output format for each test.
