New Research To Be Presented By Freeman Technology At EAS 2013 On Powder Flow Additives And QbD

Freeman Technology will present new research into quantifying the effects of powder flow additives on pharmaceutical powders at this year’s Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS), held from 18 – 20 November 2013 in Somerset NJ, USA.

Mike Delancy, National Sales Specialist for Freeman Technology will speak at the Eastern Analytical Symposium in Nov 2013

Entitled ‘Characterising and optimising the use of flow additives in powders and powder formulations’, the presentation will be delivered by Mike Delancy, Freeman Technology’s National Sales Specialist, at 4:40pm on Tuesday 19 November. Mike will explain how the company’s FT4 Powder Rheometer® is being used to quantify the effects of flow additives on powder flowability.

Understanding and controlling powder behaviour, and particularly how powders flow, is crucial for process optimisation. The new research from Freeman Technology complements the trends within the pharmaceutical industry towards quality by design (QbD) and continuous manufacturing. Mike Delancy’s presentation will examine how dynamic powder testing can be used to enhance product development activities, and how it offers the sensitivity to detect and quantify even subtle changes in powder behaviour following the addition of flow additives.

The FT4 Powder Rheometer is a universal powder tester that offers the most comprehensive range of powder characterisation methods available, encompassing bulk, shear and dynamic flowability measurements. With seven standard tests, yielding a broad range of powder properties, the FT4 provides a breadth of process relevant information that is directly applicable to all industrial powder processes.

Mike Delancy will be available to discuss any aspect of powder characterisation. Simply contact [email protected] to arrange a meeting at EAS 2013.
