Freeman Technology, the powder characterisation specialists, will launch the Uniaxial Powder Tester (UPT) at Powtech 2016 (19 April – 21 April, 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.
It is 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. Available in manual and advanced versions, the UPT offers a low cost, powder testing solution. For more information please visit
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. See both instruments 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. Specialists will present on the development of the automated uniaxial tester, predicting the performance of powder feeders using multivariate modelling and the influence of roller compaction processing variables on the rheological properties of granules.
The team looks forward to welcoming you on the stand and discussing the challenges associated with powder handling and processing.
