Powder Flow Tester

December 9, 2010
Brookfield Engineering Laboratories IncDeveloped in cooperation with the Wolfson Centre at the University Greenwich, UK, this instrument delivers quick/easy analysis of power flow behavior. The PFT is ideal for manufacturers who need to eliminate the downtime and expense that occur when hoppers/silos fail to discharge. Customers can also perform QC checks on incoming materials, quickly characterize new formulations, and adjust composition to match the flow behavior of established products. The unit features a variety of test options including: flow function, time consolidation, wall friction, and bulk density. Time estimates for the duration of each test are automatically calculated before the start of the test in case adjustments are needed. The operator has a choice of graphical or tabular data output format for each test, plus calculations for arching dimension, rathole diameter, and hopper half-angle.
