Stable Micro Systems - Powder Flow Analysis
The Powder Flow Analyser is an accurate and reliable method of measuring the flow characteristics of powders. It can be rapidly fitted to a Stable Micro Systems Texture Analyser, enabling manufacturers to assess and avoid typical problems such as batch and source variation of ingredients, caking during storage/transportation, and problems with discharging from hoppers or bins.
How it Works:
Samples are placed in a standard (140ml) or small (25ml) borosilicate glass vessel; allowing users to observe the powder as the sample is displaced. The powder is conditioned at the beginning of each test to eliminate any variations in loading and the precision-engineered, patented blade is then rotated through the sample, causing “controlled flow”.
The Powder Flow Analyser is supplied with library tests so operators can start testing quickly and conveniently after straightforward installation and calibration. Users can, however, fully program the instrument to carry out slicing, shearing, compressing, compacting, and aerating cycles in any combination.
