Powders exhibition and education high on Freeman Technology agenda for May 2014

publication date: Apr 2, 2014
author/source: Freeman Technology

Early May provides two opportunities to meet with the Freeman Technology team and learn how the latest advances in powder testing can help solve processing and handling problems.

Freeman TechnologyFreeman Technology’s US team will be showcasing the capabilities of the FT4 Powder Rheometer® at the PTXi/Powder & Bulk Solids show in Rosemont IL, from 6-8 May 2014. At the same time Operations Director Jamie Clayton is an invited speaker on the ‘Analytical Methods for Powder Handling and Processing’ course organised by Powder Info News in Copenhagen on 6 May.

The FT4 Powder Rheometer combines dynamic, bulk and shear testing capabilities in a single instrument. It is used to deliver the understanding required for efficient product development and effective process design, operation, troubleshooting and optimisation. Dynamic testing in particular continues to prove especially useful for industrial studies. Inherently sensitive and having  high repeatability and reproducibility, dynamic testing  can be carried out on consolidated, aerated or even fluidised powder samples to directly assess how a powder responds to air. This is a critical feature for many processes. Visitors to the Freeman Technology booth at PTXi can learn how these capabilities are being used to address specific processing issues in order to optimise productivity and quality across a range of industries.

Jamie Clayton’s talk at the Powder Info News course in Copenhagen covers the ‘Measurement of powder flow properties’. The ability to achieve desirable flow characteristics in a powder, whether a finished product or in-process material, is often crucial in reaching product performance goals and/or acceptable manufacturing efficiency. In this presentation, Jamie Clayton will review some of the techniques routinely used for flowability testing, emphasising the features of a method or instrument that make it especially useful for solving powder handling problems. The need to generate process-relevant information, to measure properties that directly correlate with process performance, will be a major focus.
