New Material Choices for Powder Flow Tester Shear Cell Kits

January 2, 2014

Brookfield Engineering is now offering shear cell kits with new material choices for use with its PFT powder flow tester. These new material options provide customers with selections to better simulate the actual working conditions with the equipment on the plant floor. This yields more accurate sample testing resulting in less down time on the production floor. The standard shear cell kit includes a trough and lid milled from 304 stainless steel. Now these components are available in mild steel, 316 stainless steel, and Tivar. These new shear cell kits are generally available for delivery in less than two weeks. In addition to these materials, Brookfield can also produce custom shear cell kits made to a customer’s material specifications. The PFT utilizes shear cell methodology to measure the flow behavior of industrial powders in gravity fed converging hoppers.
