A‌t POWTECH, Freeman Technology, now part of Micromeritics Instrument Corporation, will be presenting comprehensive material characterization solutions, designed to optimise process performance, increase productivity and improve quality in a diverse range of sectors.


The Freeman Technology portfolio includes the FT4 Powder Rheometer®, a unique and comprehensive powder tester, which employs patented dynamic methodologies, automated shear cells (in accordance with ASTM D7891) and a series of bulk property tests to quantify powder behaviour in terms of flow and processability. This is complemented by the Uniaxial Powder Tester, which provides accurate and repeatable measurements of the uniaxial unconfined yield strength (uUYS) of powders to assess and rank flowability. The company also offers in-line, real-time flow measurement capabilities via an exclusive partnership with Lenterra Inc, manufacturers of optical flow sensor technology.


At the co-located Partec conference, recent research results on the inline determination of mixing processes as well as the determination of the flow behavior and the corresponding influencing factors will be presented – e.g. how do friction, electrostatic charging or temperature changes affect the flow properties of powder. At the Freeman Technology stand visitors will be able to meet with the Company’s team of experts to discuss this research in more detail, as well as see more on innovative developments to study the effect of elevated temperature on powder behaviour.
