Freeman Technology has announced it will launch the Uniaxial Powder Tester (UPT) at Powtech 2016, April 19 – 21, Nüremberg, Germany. The new powder tester provides an accurate and repeatable measure of the unconfined yield strength (UYS) of a powder to assess and rank flowability.
The tester is claimed to be quick, reliable and easy to use, delivering value to scientists, process engineers and QC analysts working in a diverse range of bulk solids handling industries. It is available in manual and advanced versions and is reported as providing a low cost powder testing solution.
Alongside the UPT, the company continues to provide a comprehensive powder characterisation solution in the FT4 Powder Rheometer®, a unique universal powder tester, which uses patented dynamic methodology, automated shear cells and bulk property tests to quantify the flow properties of powders.
Both instruments can be seen on stand #4-547, where representatives from Freeman Technology will be on hand throughout the event to discuss all aspects of material characterisation. There will also be an opportunity to hear about the company’s latest research during Partec, the conference running alongside Powtech.
