What Types of Sample can be tested?

Almost any type of sample capable of flow.

Powders, granules, wet-mixed powders, pastes, slurries.

The angled rotating blade of the Powder Flow Analyser imposes flow within the sample.  This means that almost any type of sample that is capable of flow can be tested.
