Freeman Technology has recently released 'Characterising Batch to Batch Variability in Gypsum Products'.
Gypsum powders are used in a variety of industries. The calcined powder reacts readily with water to form a slurry that can be worked into a desired shape before exothermically curing to form a solid mass.

A manufacturing method that processes the material to produce a consistent product is essential as even subtle variations between batches will lead to behavioural differences across the diverse range of applications.
This study uses the FT4 Powder Rheometer® (a universal powder tester) to accurately quantify differences in the properties of gypsum batches that impact process performance.
Copies are also available on request in Chinese and Japanese.
