The PFT Powder Flow Tester has a solution for small powder samples. Ideal for chemical formulators who test expensive powders in limited quantities, the small volume shear cell requires only 43cc of powder. Other good candidates include materials that are difficult or messy to handle, such as powdered inks. The small volume shear cell has an added technical performance advantage, namely the ability to generate higher consolidation stresses, which simulates conditions in larger bins and silos. The PFT provides quick and easy analysis of powder flow behavior in industrial processing equipment. It allows technicians to QC check incoming materials and evaluate how powders will discharge from storage containers. R&D can also rapidly characterize new formulations for flowability and adjust composition to match the flow behavior of established products.
