Powder Flow Analyser bulletControlled Flow* Measurement

Test virtually any material capable of flow and displacement - not just free flowing powders

Tests dry powders through to wet slurries and all stages in between

Impose extremely gentle through to aggressive flows, and measure the resulting force to characterise the sample under those controlled conditions.

User defined sample flow to suit the sample type and characteristic of interest, or to be complimentary to the process conditions experienced by the sample.

Powder Flow Analyser bulletRepeatability & Reproducibility

Repeatable Test Settings and sample flow programs - exactly the same test again and again. See Test Applications

Independence from operator sample loading technique. Controlled Sample Flow enables the powder column sample to be preconditioned before the actual test cycle.

Precision borosilicate glass or stainless steel test vessels. Test vessels of similar specification give the same test result.

Data can be captured up to 500 points per second (PPS).

Precision machined and surface finished rotor and blade form for displacing the powder. Blades of similar specification give the same test result. Blades can be made in most engineering materials capable of being machined (Standards are stainless Steel and Anodised Aluminium)

Rotors of specific dimensions and materials can be precision machined for the Powder Flow Analyser

Powder Flow Analyser bulletSample Size

From less than 20ml to over 200ml

Where samples of bulk solids are extremely rare or very expensive, e.g. in the pharmaceutical industry, samples down to 20ml can be analysed.

Powder Flow Analyser bulletCleaning

Test vessel bases are easily removed to enable thorough, simple cleaning.
Only test sample contact parts are vessel and rotor which are easily replaced if used with highly toxic or radioactive materials.

Powder Flow Analyser bulletEase of Use

Samples can be pre loaded into sample vessels and pre conditioned for humidity and temperature.
Texture Expert Exceed with Plug -In software extends the renowned Exceed software to include full Powder Flow Analyser control and analysis whilst Exponent software (for use with the TA.XTplus Texture Analyser) has rotational control as standard.

Powder Flow Analyser bulletVersatility

Rapid tests, through to extended cycle mixing tests are possible.

Compaction, slice, shear, lift - aeration are all possible and test programmable in the manner most suited to the sample and your process need.

Bulk density measurements, bulk density change with consolidation stress, flow after consolidation, powder-material friction and uni-axial compression analyses are all available on the one system by simply changing the fixture and test set up.

Can also test - tablet and cake compression strength, forward and back extrusion, granule crush strength, three point bend, and many other tests. All of the normal Stable Micro Systems texture analyser test accessories can be used in conjunction with the Powder Flow Analyser.
